    How to pronounce Vibiemme and Diadema

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    How do you pronouce the names of the Italian espresso machines.
    Vibiemme, and Diadema

    This is how it is explained on some other sites I searched

    Vibiemme

    Vee bee YEH meh
    Vee-bee-m-may
    Vibe-ee-emma

    and from a video of Scottie Callaghan, it sounded like he says vib-eee-em

    Diadema


    Dee-a-demma

    It would be nice if I was to walk into a shop and sound as if I was asking for the right thing.

    Vibiemme is easy. Just ask for the Domobar model!

    Diadema I say as Di a de ma

    My brother gets around words he can not say like this. He takes a printed copy of the machine he wants to look at: the staff know at once what he wants. Most times, they say the name for him!
    Hope that helps!

    Ooh, just found out that with Microsoft Translator, you can select a language, type in any word and someone that sounds like they've come from whatever language you selected pronouncing it.

    According to Microsoft Translator's Italian (where I think they are from) pronouncing... Vee-bee-eh-meh and Dee-a-demma

    Stayed up way too late last night reading about different machines, but as a result found this from the Vibiemme website.

    Congratulations on your choice of a Vibiemme espresso machine (in Italian the name is pronounced “Vee•Be•Em-may Dough•Mow•Bar”).

    Just ask the Turks how they pronounce Gallipoli... Australians say many things 'differently'. I'm sure native Italians wouldn't say De Bortoli the way the Aussie wine industry says it - right or wrong, it probably doesn't matter
