    As I had a Dual Boiler before I wanted to go for a Dual Boiler again, but this time with a rotary pump and a larger brew boiler.
    After seeing the design and inspecting the build quality I knew that it had to be the Syncronika. The Insulation and the stainless steel boilers made it perfect for me. Together with a decent offer for a showroom mashine I went for it and do not regret it at all.

    Choosing between Mechanika and Technika took weeks, both are beautiful.
    After using 250g coffee to roughly dial in the shot, my latte taste very good.
    I guess it gets even better after learning to use the machine(s) and fine tune my skills.
    My latte art is almost non existent so far, so lots of room for improvement.
    Bought a Motta also, so I can't blame the equipment.
    The steam is easy to handle and the joysticks are nice to use.
    Like the grinder also, little to no clumping after (roughly) dialing it in.
    Easy to distribute the coffee in the portafilter, have not used the timer yet.
    Use a fine grind with a light, but firm tamp.
    Very satisfied so far.
    I just hope that I can get some sleep tonight... :-)
    That's the set-up I'm leaning towards. Are you happy with it? Seems like the ECM grinder is relatively new to the market, but the specs look good and it matches the ECM machines well. Any advice?

    I thought about the s-automatic 64 as I thought it would look lovely combined to my Elektronika but read a few to many bad opinions and not enough positive to take the plunge with it.
    I chose the EMC Elecktronika as I feel it one of the best single E62 group head espresso machines with volumetric control on the market. And their aren't many E61.

    On the grinder, I also didn't read great reviews about it. I think you are better off with the Titan 64, which is a pimped version of the Profitec T64. They have a more powerful motor and a funnel design.

    Hi,
    The Mechanika is excellent, was a bit worried to go for hx since earlier experience was a singel boiler Silvia.
    But the Mechanika is easy to temp surf and I'm very satisfied.

    I'm also very happy with the grinder.
    Nice size, easy to adjust, even grind, quick, "silent" and nice room to adjust portafilter to get even distribution.
    (I had a Rocky earlier, so I'm not very experienced on grinders.)
    No buyer remorse and would not hesitate to buy the same equipment again
    Hope this helps

    Thanks. I ended up going with the Mechanika and the Fausto grinder combo. Looking forward to receiving it and playing with it. Now comes the hard part - learning to use it and dialing it in!
