Thanks to built-in safety mechanisms, the S1 Vivaldi II is also a smart machine. This is an expertly designed system that will reduce maintenance headaches while delivering superior espresso.
Key Features and What They Mean
There are two separate boilers, one for steaming and one for brewing. This means that you can brew espresso and steam milk at the same time.
Select single and double dose buttons to brew. The machine automatically stops at the correct volume, generating automatic consistency.
Programmable Passive Pre-Infusion
Program pre-infusion to last from 1 to 8 seconds and tailor your espresso recipes to your specific taste.
Group Temperature Adjustment
Through the touchpad, adjust the group temperature in 1°C increments for total precision.
Programmable Offset Differential
This allows you to make adjustments that fix differences between the temperature sensed by the temperature probe and the actual temperature of the hot water exiting the group. You’ll have a higher degree of accuracy and more reliable results.
Swivel Stainless Steel Steam Arm: The stainless steel steam arm’s multidirectional movement lets you position your milk pitcher however you need, allowing aerating techniques greater effectiveness.
Quiet and highly durable, the rotary pump won’t disturb low-noise environments.
Electronic Boiler Refill
No need to stop and manually activate boiler refill. The machine will do it on its own.
Fault Diagnosis Alarms
A series of alarm systems integrated into the machine safeguard it and alert you in case of failures, protecting your investment and increasing the longevity of the machine.
A combined group and boiler pressure gauge shows you what’s going on in the machine. With the information provided by the pressure readings, you’ll be able to better navigate machine operation.
0.9 mm 4 Hole Steam Tip
This steam tip is carefully designed to improve microfoam with multidirectional steam pressure while frothing the milk. You’ll get better latte and cappuccino milk if you struggle with this.

Common Questions and Answers
Q: What is passive pre-infusion and why does it matter?
A: During the initial phase of extraction known as pre-infusion (on machines that feature it), the coffee bed will become fully saturated before full brew pressure is achieved. This settles the coffee and ensures that all particles are evenly reached by the water, creating a more well-rounded flavor.
Essentially, passive pre-infusion refers to the fact that you do not need to manually control this stage of extraction.
And since you can program the passive pre-infusion in the S1 Vivaldi II for different lengths of time, you have more control than in a passive pre-infusion system like the one that comes with an E-61 group. Meanwhile, you retain the simplicity and ease of the passive system.
Q: What does a manometer do on the Vivaldi ii?
A: A manometer shows you a pressure measurement. In the case of the S1 Vivaldi II, the dual manometer displays the boiler pressure as well as the pressure built while the pump is active during brewing.
By reading the boiler pressure gauge, you’ll have a clearer understanding of when you can use the machine, as in when you can brew espresso and steam milk. You’re looking for the right pressure reading.
The group pressure gauge guides you toward the right brew ratio. So when you’re pulling a shot and the pressure is not building correctly, you know that it’s time to adjust an element of your brew ratio, such as how much coffee you’re using.
Q: Why is the offset differential important?
A: Typically, there is a difference between the boiler temperature readings an espresso machine is producing and the actual temperature of the water coming out of the group. This is because there are natural temperature differences between the water sitting in the boiler and the water that has traveled to the group.
Differences shouldn’t be vast, but even slight variations can change your espresso results. As such, if you’re serious about espresso, you may want to get out a temperature reader to test the group water on any espresso machine.
The S1 Vivaldi II solves the problem by letting you adjust the LED temperature setting so that it matches the group temperature—not the boiler temperature. This way, you’ll know exactly what temperature you’re extracting espresso at.
