Vesuvius Espresso Machine - ERUPT Over This One!!

The Vesuvius is a dual boiler espresso machine manufactured by M&V located in Cercola, Italy. This is one of the first prosumer, computer controlled espresso machines with an E61 group. It delviers true pressure profiling via its FG304 gear pump and speed-controllable motor. The Vesuvius is operated completely through its PID touch pad display, which informs you of the current temperatures of the boilers, the pressure, and if you are running it off the tank, the amount of water left.

The Vesuvius has a unique placement for its water tank; instead of being accessed from the top of the machine, usually located right under the cup warming tray, this machine has the tank hidden behind the left side panel, which can be accessed by opening up a simple latch and and tilting to the left. No need to constantly remove and stack up your cups every single time you need to add water to the reservoir. The main power switch is also located here.

These machines all come inside a wooden crate and are bolted to the base of the crate. We then strap the crate to a pallet to ship them via common carrier fully insured. This form of shipping is much more expensive for us than UPS or FedEx, but we feel it is not only worth it but necessary. We have tried both UPS and FedEx and it simply isn't worth it; too many machines have been damaged int eh process of shipping. The last thing you would want is to place an order for a beautiful machine, only to have it arrive damaged. **You will need to call the trucking company to schedule a delivery day for your machine.
