Need to Know

What is it?

Big things indeed come in small packages; the Mechanika Slim VI sports a massive 2.2-liter stainless steel heat-exchange boiler with 1.6 bar steam pressure at its high end to produce a luscious microfoam for lattes. The VI Slim adds two features to offer the home barista more control:

3-Way Temperature Switch:
  • The middle default position (0)—199-204F
  • The lower position (I)—194-199F
  • The higher position (II)—204-210F
*Approximate temperature at the group head during extraction

Automatic Pre-Infusion
Pre-infusion helps with mitigating channeling issues and can help promote more even extraction. After lifting the brew lever, the VI Slim will release a small amount of water for several seconds at low pressure to saturate the puck, pause, and then the pump kicks on for full pressure. 

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. Sharing this experience with friends and family is just as important, so you want a machine that can produce latte after americano for your next dinner party.

Why do we carry it? 

The Mechanika VI slim is the perfect combination of brains, brawn, and beauty. For those not keen on stainless steel, check out the Heritage version. No other heat exchanger on the market comes packed with features combined with its small size and build quality.  For those who demand a lot from their machine,  desire a tactile daily ritual, and a mechanical experience that evokes the romantic history of espresso, the Mechanka VI Slim extends this tradition in spades.
