What is it?

The ECM Mechanika V Slim is a heat exchanger espresso machine with a large 2.2-liter steam boiler, an E61 group head, a quiet vibratory pump, and an internal water reservoir.

Who is it for?

You need a lot from your espresso machine. You want your daily ritual to be a tactile, mechanical experience that evokes the romantic history of espresso. It also needs to be built well enough to last for years, or decades, to come. Just as important is sharing this experience with friends and family, so you want a machine that can produce latte after americano for your next dinner party.

Why do we carry it?

As the home espresso market continues to advance, manufacturers are building smaller and smaller machines that, paradoxically, pack a bigger and bigger punch. The ECM Mechanika V Slim is one such machine. Heat exchange systems are great for delivering continuous temperature stability and plenty of steam. With its large 2.2L boiler and powerful heating element, the Mechanika produces more steam power than espresso machines that are twice the price and also significantly larger. Whether you love steamed milk drinks or the mechanical simplicity of a heat exchanger design, the Mechanika will deliver delicious espresso and classic looks. For reference, it has almost the same dimensions as the ECM Classika PID, a single boiler machine, making it as endearing as it is impressive.

Heat Exchanger

Heat exchanger espresso machines continue to be the most popular in cafes around the world because they offer the ability to steam milk and pull shots at the same time with mechanical simplicity. This makes for more steam power at a lower price than dual boilers and fantastic temperature stability.

The reservoir is the water tank an espresso machine pulls water from to fill its boilers. Having a reservoir means a machine can be more portable and work in homes where plumbing isn't an option.
