Espresso purists and space constrained cappuccino lovers: rejoice! We worked with our friends at ECM to develop a custom and exclusive version of their time-tested Classika espresso machine. We’re thrilled with the result. The Special Edition ECM Classika PID from Clive Coffee packs premium features and build quality, to create cafe performance in one of the most compact footprints on the market.

The timeless lever-actuated e61 group head, mirror polished (or black, or white) panels and upgraded steaming joystick are gorgeous, but this is so much more than a pretty face. Classika’s .75 liter stainless steel boiler is the same size as the brew boiler in the flagship ECM Synchronika, meaning nothing will be sacrificed in the cup. ECM’s patented e61 group head incorporates stainless steel internals and 9 pounds of chromed brass brings amazing temperature stability and mechanical pre-infusion to every shot. The cutting edge PID allows fine tuning of espresso flavors by individual degree temperature adjustment, and the built-in shot timer helps to dial in the grinder and improve shot consistency. When you find your favorite flavors, the machine holds your setting to within 1 degree.

The updated joystick has spring-like action which means steam power is instant on and off, so you can steam your milk to the perfect temperature every time. Flip the satisfying rocker switch to steam mode, and in one minute you’ll have ample steam power for your favorite milk drink. The stainless steel steam wand swivels fully on a ball joint, so you can accommodate multiple pitcher sizes and point the steam right where you want it.

The spotless internal layout and German engineering make it clear that the Classika is built to be long-lasting, with routine maintenance made as straightforward as possible. If it’s all about the flavor in the cup, and you don’t make a lot of back-to-back milk drinks, the Clive Classika is ready to take your coffee journey to new heights.
