A clear winner for the espresso enthusiasts and for all low-volume coffee shops (up to 200 cups per day)! This Bricoletta Volante has a rotary vane pump and direct water connection for a very competitive price! The Bricoletta Volante sports a very solid, thick gauge stainless steel frame which is overshadowed by its one-of-a-kind polished, stainless steel square body. Enhancements include two large pressure gauges and multi-directional steam wands!When we say 'heavy duty', you will see we mean heavy duty. It is also the most powerful machine in its class with 1900 watts of power. We certainly recommend a 20-amp circuit to supply electrical power to this machine. Why the high wattage? With the highest wattage in its class, it offers the quickest recovery time in the boiler for the most demanding applications.When this machine needs repair (as every espresso machine will someday need repair), it is very easy to work on. There are three philips screws to remove the top cover, and then only 2 allen key bolts and one flat screw on the wrap-around side body panel. All parts can be replaced while the machine is standing up. There is no need to turn the machine upside down to get to a bottom access panel for access to a heating element underneath. Even the machine reset switch can be accessed with the machine in the upright position. The bottom line is that most customers can repair this machine with the 1st rate guidance of 1st-line's technical support. If not, the machine can be shipped in for repair, as well. 1st-line also stocks replacement parts for the Bricoletta.

Review: I've had my Volante for 7 1/2 years and only pull up to six shots a day. Like any machine it's needed service. Mine is plumbed in, and I have both a water softening system and Everpure filter system. It rests near the sink so I can snake a drain hose from the drip tray to the sink edge. So easy! My only real complaint is I wish the drip tray was deeper but the smaller footprint of the machine is what won me over compared to other models. It's a quiet machine. I thought the extra gauge would be v... More details

Review: I bought this machine solely on the recommendation of the staff at 1st Line, after several months of agonizing on a purchase,for which I considered all the usual suspects in the E61 group. Previously I'd owned a top of the line Krups, followed by a Rancilio Silvia, followed by a DeLonghi superautomatic. I'd never heard of Fiorenzato, but was sold on the idea that it was easy to repair on one's own if needed. I knew going in that eventually I would have to deal with something going wrong, and con...
