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 Clive Classika PID by ECM 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.

Mahlkönig 54mm Ceramic Flat Burrs Mahlkönig is a powerhouse in the world of professional grinders. Baratza teamed up with Mahlkönig to bring you thesehigh quality burrs that stay sharper longer. Ceramic has a 1.5- 2.0 x longer life than steel burrs.It also serves to keep the coffee cool by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds.

Grind on Demand The Vario will grind only the precise amount you require for each shot directly into your espresso porta filter.This eliminates the risk of stale ground coffee common in mechanical dosing units. This function is also useful for coffee makers or french presses, as you no longer have to measure with a scoop. Simply figure out how many secondsof grinding produce the desired amount, then memorize the time with one of the three buttons designated for Espresso, French Press, and Drip Maker.This timer has 0.1 second adjustable steps (0.2 grams).

Dual Cam Grind Adjustment The Vario boasts an innovative dual cam grind adjustment. The right hand lever lets you choose what type of grind you’d like, from espresso to french press or similar. The lever on the left lets you fine tune the grind within the range you’ve selected for a perfect grind. Over 230 grind settings are available.

Powerful motor Driving the grinder is a powerful DE motor that turns slowly, resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits expanded grinding time. You will be amazed at the super quiet operation from the belt drive.The circuitry is equipped with an automatic reset thermal switch. To make espresso pulling even easier, the Vario is equipped with a PortaHolder, a universally adjustable bracket for any portafilter that permits hands-free operation.
