What is the best Setup for my new Mini- Vivaldi? - Best Addons?

Post by AdvancedFabian »

Hi Guys,
im very happy that I found a forum just dedicated to my maschine.. awesome
I bought a little bit older Mini Vivaldi from an forum user (other board)
https://www.kaffee-netz.de/threads/la-s ... au.131357/
This one is, as i can say, pretty good in shape and the extra tools (programable functions via WLAN) are super awesome.. Timer for each day, shot counter, electric counter, ..

I want to get the best out of my device and looking alot for new/old information..
I have the basic double and single shot portafilters (if he doesnt change them).

My next upgrade for better visible results is a bottom-less portafilter..

with this i bought the 15g precision accurato sieve

and this

do you think I'm good with this setup? I think so...
What do you learned with this maschine specific? Do you have tipps for best performance?

E.g.
- I have no preinfusion. I read that it is possible to time the solo-cup button to low low volumes to use this as a pre-infusion/pre-soaking of the puk. Does this makes sense? Is a real pre-infusion kit necessary? Is a bit expensive..
- Do you do something else specific? I ordered a leveler as well to distribute nicely before tamping... will need some shipping time.
- Is there something which realy raised your quality of espresso?

Looking forward to learn anything about the maschine and espresso in general. I have to train my sensory as well as how to get the most out of it. Pretty new to the espresso buisness :-)

If you have basic tipps for me - thank you alot in advance :-)

best regards -and Thanks to anybody who is supporting this nice community

best regards,
Fabian

Congratulations on your new acquisition. You have found an amazing resource for all your needs.

You are so far on the right track.
Get the pre-infusion.
Get the best grinder you can get.
