"I love the Mechanika V Slim! It looks great, it's simple to use, and it's built like a very sexy tank. For my first espresso machine, I wanted a machine that provides a really good hands on experience for my morning ritual. I'd recommend this machine and Clive without question."

Need to Know

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?

Those that demand a lot from their 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 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.
