Bottom Line: Using a machine of this caliber has brought me to love the art of brewing espresso.  Pouring a perfect shot isn't as easy as it looks.
Positive Product Points

Great machine for this price point,  aesthetically pleasing and is user friendly.

Negative Product Points

Machine should come with a no burn steam wand and 4 hole 9mm tip.  I know this affects the initial sales price, but it really helps to extent the frothing time needed to make creamy milk.

Detailed Commentary

During some research of espresso machines, I found that the Vivaldi II Single Group by LaSpaziale was priced very competitively among similar machines.  I my opinion having the direct plumb and the timer are a must.  I use the machine at home and the timer is ideal.  The machine takes about 25 minutes to fully heat up, so there is no waiting in the morning.  The direct plumb is also a huge time saver.  I really recommend this if it is possible.  The machine is really consistent and the boilers can keep up with heavy demand.  The 110/220  is also a really nice option.  Over all the machine is outstanding.  I would recommend it to anyone who is looking.

Buying Experience

Chris's Coffee was great to work with on the purchase of the machine as well as accessories.  I also highly recommend their Black Pearl Espresso, it is in my opinion better than Lavazza Super Crema espresso as well as other espresso that I have tasted.
