Help me choose between Izzo models
The Alex IV PID plus AUS is the heat exchanger machine produced on the same chassis as an Alex Duetto. It’s the big brother to the Izzo Vivi PID and adds a much larger boiler and rotary pump to the specification.
Features of the Alex IV plus PID AUS:
- Australian spec. Includes steam tip set ($65) and high quality OEM machined tamper ($75)
- Slimline drip tray with magnet to ensure optimum placement. 1.5cm lower than previous models
- Recessed cup tray for lower overall height with cups in place
- 125mm distance between drip tray and coffee group, for those who prefer larger cups. 2.5cm greater than previous models
- Increased distance from steam and hot water to body and full stainless front panel to avoid any damage from the wands
- Pressure of the rotary pump can easily be adjusted from outside, through a hole placed laterally at the bottom of the machine
- Certification NSF/ANSI 372 for coffee group and NSF certification for chromed parts.
- Large copper 2.3L boiler for unlimited steam and excellent shot to shot temperature stability
- Easy access for maintenance of the heating elements through the lower inspection plates
- Shot-timer PID which indicates the shot time in seconds- activated by lifting the lever
- Switchable between internal water reservoir or fully plumbed connection to mains water supply
