Hey everyone.

I posted about this machine before, but made the newbie mistake of including a link to the product. I apologize, and I assure you, I am not trying to sell anything. In fact, the opposite is true. I am in the market for an espresso machine, and am looking at the Lelit Mara X and the Izzo Vivi PID. I've owned an Expobar Office Lever in the past, paired with a Ceado E7, both of which I had to sell, due to an extended illness. I'm now back in the market for a machine and grinder, and these two are competing for my money. I've found all kinds of reviews and info on the Mara X, but very little on the Izzo Vivi.

Does anyone own the Izzo or have knowledge about it that they would care to impart? I'm concerned about the build quality of the Mara, which is what's preventing me from pulling the trigger on it. Meanwhile, the Izzo Vivi has caught my attention. Any info or reviews you could point me to would be greatly appreciated.
