Check out the rebadged Mardi Gras parade of espresso machines starting here. Who can name those machines?

The first one's easy - Brasilia Club

2  Could it be a Saeco Classico?
5  Isomac Hexagon.
6  Isomac Millennium.
7  Isomac Tea.
8  Isomac, but what model?
9  Isomac Zaffiro.
10 Hmm, clearly a rebranded Zaffiro, but what brand?
11 Hmm...resembles a Vibiemme Quickmill, doesn't it?
12 Another little Isomac I can't remember the name of.
13 Isomac, model unknown (rebranded Saeco Classico).
15 As 13 but with a different finish.
16 See 15.
17 See 15.

Does everyone agree? What about 3,4,10,11,14?

8 Isomac Venus. 13kg weight, 1.2 l boiler (supposedly, can't confirm).

11 is Isomac Cafetera. I may be reviewing one of these soon. Similar to the quahla (sp?) that Alan wrote about on this site.

12 is Isomac Giada. Discontinued, the Super Giada replaces it.

13 isn't a rebranded Saeco. It's the Isomac Cappuccina, and probably closer to Alan's Quahla machine.

Lotsa Isomacs. That's pretty much their whole line up, once you add the zaffiro, millenium, and tea and hexagon. The only one I haven't seen over here is the A02, which is a two grouper version of the Millenium.

Cool! Anyone have a clue about number 3, the one with the decagon shaped E61?

When you click on the details of the diagram you can see it's an isomac product. So why they changed the names??

Number 14 is an Isomac Tutto, in fact he gave me one of these for free, to get me into espresso.   Its not bad, a little tricky to get used to.  53mm portafilter, but heavy duty.  Steam wand is powerful but very very short.  have to say I am very impressed with the build in grinder on here.  Not the most powerful machine, and I can't find any help online about it, but the owner is very informative.  His name is Domenic and he is perhaps one of the nicest people I have ever met.  If you are ever in Dallas, check out his collection, simply amazing.  He also hooked me up with his in house coffee, and 2 bottles of in house syrup.  I traded him in old machine, but he knew it was junk, so it was in unbalanced trade, but he still was wonderful about it all.  not to mention he'll whip you up about 5 caps while you talk to him.  Watching him work is awesome!

Any ideas on #3?  Great looking machine, would love to have a name on it.

ETA: I'm looking at #3 on home machines, they call it the "novella."  E61. Really interested.  525USD.

I don't think it's an HX though.. By the buttons it seems like a single boiler.. anyone know?

I bought a #3 from some guy on craigslist a couple months ago! From what I have found out it is an older Isomac Itala, circa 1995. it is a single boiler its boiler size (~800 ml) and most of the specs are the same as the Isomac zaffiro, except the buttons are different. And the brew thermostats is an adjustable vapor pressure bulb.
