The Vivaldi II by La Spaziale is built so well that it comes with a TWO YEAR parts & labor warranty.
Given their experience with the Vivaldi I, Chris' Coffee Service presented La Spaziale with customers' wish lists for the next generation. The end result; the Vivaldi II. Since its arrival to the market in 2006, over 2,000 units have been sold. The Vivaldi II was awarded the Coffeegeek Editors Choice Award for Best New Product in 2006. In 2008 additional upgrades were requested by Chris' Coffee including a Programmable Off-set Differential, Programmable Passive Pre-Infusion (available with an optional pre-infusion chamber on the Mini Vivaldi II), and a new optional steam tip with smaller .9 mm holes.
Optional Pre-Infusion Chamber
Programmable Off-Set Differential
- This makes the LED temperature setting on the front of the machine equal to the temperature being delivered at the group rather than the temperature inside the group boiler. Note: It is set during the bench test of each machine prior to shipping so that the customer doesn't have to invest in the expensive equipment necessary to perform the tests and setting.
- It is no longer necessary to purchase a separate portafilter with a pressure gauge to check or make adjustments to the pump's output pressure.
- There is cord a within the Vivaldi II to accept an OPTIONAL 7 day programmable timer plug. This feature allows the user to set different times to have the machine come on and go off on different days.
New option available, .9mm 4 hole steam tip
- This New .9mm 4 hole steam tip makes this machine one of the easiest to produce excellent micro-foam fast and easy even with small quantities of milk.
An Optional Drain Kits
- This optional drain kit gives the user a no hassel and easy maintenance experience when using their Vivaldi II instead of having to worry about emptying the drip tray.
- The previous model needed to detect a temperature drop of one degree Celsius before the heater would activate. The NEW Vivaldi II activates the heater with the detection of a temperature drop of just one half of a degree Celsius. Simply put, it makes the temperature accuracy extremly precise in the group boiler and enhances the performance of the steam boiler.
Updated temperature sensing probe
- The new probe is physically submerged into the boilers. This probe has proven to be more reliable than the previous style and has a quicker reaction time.
New LED display
- The previous display was 5 degree increments, from 85 to 120 degrees Celsius. The NEW Vivaldi II displays in 1 degree increments, from 91 to 97 degrees Celsius.
91C = 195.8F
92C = 197.6F
93C = 199.4F
94C = 201.2F
95C = 203.0F
96C = 204.8F
97C = 206.6F
