I have a S1 Vivaldi, which I bought from Chris coffee.

It has a huge dual boiler so has awesome steam pressure
Produces great espresso
adjustable temperature

I love my S1 and my machine blew up today and I were to buy another, I'd
probably buy the S1 v2:

No relationship with Chris Coffee, other than being a happy customer.
