I upgraded to a Mini Vivaldi II about a year ago and have been meaning to sell my prior E61 HX machine.
The machine is a Grimac La Uno (aka "Grimac La Una" aka "Grimac Mini"; it seems to have many names). It's an E61-based heat exchange design. Here's a full description of the machine from 1st-line: Click Here (www.1st-line.com) I'm told it's basically the "big brother" of the La Valentina
It has a huge 5L water reservoir, 1.3L boiler, auto-fill, volumetric (or manual) dosing, etc etc etc.
When I got it, it was outfitted with a pod system and auto-frother attachment. I removed those and replaced with a brand new (upgraded and fully articulating) steam wand and new standard grouphead/filter screen from 1st-line. The pod adapter and auto-frother are included, but I doubt many here will find a use for them. It pulls great shots now!
