Recently received my 2018 S1 Mini Vivaldi 1 and excited to get tinkering!

What are the recommended mods/upgrades for this machine? Most important to me would be pre-infusion.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Kits-wise, there's the pre-infusion chamber upgrade to get pre-infusion on the non-plumbed machines. There's also a timer that you can plug onto the machine to turn it on in the morning.
The plumbed in ones look after pre-infusion in their programming.

I have a stadard vivaldi II and can say the IMS basket was a great addition. I got the 18g version. There is also a 21g version; but many say given the depth in a 53mm basket, you don't want to get into "triple" territory.

Was just thinking. In case you didn't know, you might want to check around the s1cafe forums. It's not that active anymore, but there is a lot of great info to be had in the historical posts.

I have to agree. If I had a vibe pump mini vs my roatary II, this would be on the short list.
