Izzo Commercial Grade Home Espresso Machine

The Izzo Vivi with PID control is the home espresso machine that we at Chris' Coffee consider for someone who likes to buy once and buy right. A 20-year machine that makes exceptional espresso in such a compact package that you'll be hard pressed to find from anyone other than Gruppo Izzo.

The commercial grade Sherman tank of an espresso machine is a marvelously compact E-61 group heat exchanger machine. At its heart, the 1.5 liters insulated copper boiler will never let you down. Prepared to provide only the best-tasting espresso the Vivi fitted with single manometers to display boiler pressure give a view into even more consistency in pulling each shot.

For a home espresso machine, the Izzo Vivi with PID controller has a surprisingly large water reservoir. Measuring in at 3-liters Vivi's reservoir allows for increased time between filling. When you do have to refill, the easy access filling from the top-back of the machine will have you back up and running in no time.

Excellent Machine - Not so Great Interface March 8, 2019
Reviewer: Eli from Providence, RI United States  
It's an excellent machine, consistently making superb espresso. However, the "human interface" design is not so great. The two pressure gauges are at the bottom of the front, you cannot easily see them when using the machine. The water container is relatively small and you have tp remove the top to reach it. Finally, the water container doesn't have a full cover, so you get ground  coffee floating in the water.

Great purchase February 2, 2019
Reviewer: Keith from Needham , MA United States  
I did an extensive amount of research and I am very pleased with this machine.   This is a significant upgrade from my Silvio.   I hated having to wait between espresso shots and steaming.  I also did a fair bit of reading on the PID/no PID and PID functionality on a HX machine.  In the end, this price and combination of features carried the day.   I have really enjoyed the ease with which I can adjust temperature to explore taste profiles.   This Izzo machine also looks great.  I  didn't want something that looked like a robot or a prop from a Tim Burton film on my counter and this machine is elegant.  I only have one minor gripe:  after all the thought and care put into the machine's design, the cover for the water tank is cheap and challenging to align.   It's not a big deal, but something they could have easily improved given the frequency with which one has to refill the supply.  Other than that....love this thing.   Very happy.

Best machine I've had thus far. August 20, 2018
Reviewer: Paul from Minneapolis, MN United States  
I started with Simonelli Oscar, then Rancilio Silvia. In UK I had Simonelli musica, but this one tops them all. Slick appearance, efficient brew head, nice not water supply to warm cup, & easy-to-use steamer....though I'm still practicing to obtain desired bubble size in froth.

Another great purchase from Chris Coffee June 2, 2018
Reviewer: John Davis from Durham, NC United States  
This is the second upscale espresso I have purchased from them.  The first lasted many years as a result of their excellent service and advice.  They were very attentive to my needs for features, uses and price and very helpful in making my choice for a replacement machine.  I will only purchase from Chris Coffee.

Wonderful Machine! August 13, 2016
Reviewer: David Simonetti from Washington, DC United States  
This is my forth pro-sumer machine in the last 15 years or so, and it is the best I've had yet.  I wasn't familiar with Isso but, as I considered it, I found some very positive reviews from the UK, Italy, and Germany. So, with the benefit of Chris' recommendation, I decided to go with it. First, the fit and finish on the machine is impeccable and it is built like an industrial machine.  It's the first home machine that I don't have to hold onto while seating the portafilter in the group head - 1 hand!  It is a simple no-nonsense machine which makes perfect single and double shots. The crema and consistency is better than either of my previous machines, which were high-end, well-known brands.  The boiler creates significant pressure and makes short work of any milk steaming effort. The Vivi makes beautiful coffees and out-performs anything else in its class (that I've tried) and I wholeheartedly recommend it.  I don't think you can get a better machine for the money.
