Re: Boiler Automatic refill system failure - can it fix itself?

Tigger Mark, Yes. Failures often fix themselves. Just kidding. It is likely that if the problem went away, you were probably in a programming mode you didn't even realize. I've been there. You press a button a little too long, and when you think you are just pulling a shot, you are actually reprogra...

Re: High Tech Steam Boiler Gasket call for interest

I think that while changing (or cleaning) the gasket in the brew head is easy and part of a frequent routine, opening the steam boiler is something most owners fear and hope to never have to do, hence the hesitation in committing to a purchase, even though the risk seems very small. So you can sign ...

Re: Can't open the brew boiler!

This: BTW: The Dream models actually have a feature that would address your issue though that's not really what it is for. Supposedly, Europeans prefer to leave their grounds in the PF between shots. In order to keep the grinds from drying out and sticking to the screens and PF, this feature, when e...

Re: My First La Spaziale Mini Vivaldi I

Check to see that the timer switch is set to the "OFF" position if you don't have a timer.
I had that problem, where it came from the factory in the "ON" position, even though I did not buy a timer.

Re: Unable to turn Steam Boiler off (resolved)

Replying to myself:
Unlike on my V2, the mini requires to press AND HOLD the boiler button for a couple seconds to turn the boiler off.
The latest version of the user manual actually spells this out.

Unable to turn Steam Boiler off (resolved)

On my second machine, after a good experience with the Vivaldi, I bought a mini V2. The machine arrived with the wrong amperage and timer setting on the switches, but that was an easy fix, and the machine works great now. The only thing still puzzling to me is that the steam boiler cannot be turned ...

Re: GS3

It would also stand straight under the V2 if you remove the drip tray for those 30 seconds.

Re: Silicone Gasket Longevity

I know what you are talking about. The gasket is still pliable, no sign of a groove. Honestly I don't know which side is supposed to be towards the PF.
Here are the gaskets(both) flipped over:

Re: Silicone Gasket Longevity

I am still on my first gasket, installed late June 2014.
Here it is compared to a brand new one never used:

Besides the discoloration, it is still in perfect shape. I pull 4 shots a day on average.

Clive Coffee specific model

Not an endorsement nor the opposite, but I see that Clive Coffee (Portland, OR) has yet another variation on the Vivaldi 2 and mini. They call it LUCCA A53, and it has a slightly different look but inside very similar to the regular models. Check it out: http://www.clivecoffee.com/product/la-spazial...
