  1. I recently bought a new ECM Mechanika IV and in the process of cleaning I removed the portafilter spout. It unscrewed quite easily, but when I try and put it back, it screws past the point where I would think it would stop and therefore results in the spout facing backward. I reached out to ECM and they mentioned that the spout isn't supposed to be removed and I should glue it back on. Has anyone else experienced this? What glue have you used to glue it back on? Thank you Nick
  2. Finally went with the ECM Mechanika Profi IV and the Rocket Fausto. Love it. What a nice upgrade from the super automatic I had before. The shots are coming out great but struggling mightily to get the right foam for latte art. Thanks to all on the forum for advice and personal experiences. And as many others have experienced, Bella Barista was terrific to work with.
  3. Apologies if this has been covered. i have a an ECM HX machine and to date i have always steamed milk after pulling a shot. One reason is that i am used to this from using a Classic, and the other is that the steam wand is now on the wrong side so i have the swap hands or i can't stop the shot without burning myself on the group. anyway - i am in the middle of some sumptuous yirgacheffe and thought i'd start steaming at the same time because the machine is supposed to do this. For what its worth i would start steaming just after the first drip. should i expect any difference in
  4. Bought in at the start of December 2015 from Bella Barista, this ECM Heidelberg Mechanika IV Profi WC/WT (that’s a mouthful!) is just 8 months old. It has 16 months left in warranty with Bella Barista which is transferrable, so 2/3rds of the 24 month warranty remain. Since the day I bought this machine its been nothing short of excellent. I find the machine quiet in use, wonderful to look at, the espresso is great too! The key features that make this stand out are: 2.1litre Stainless steel boiler – no copper tastes which some people can detect on normal copper boilers. 3 litre wa
  5. I bought this from the forum and then sold it, but it was swiftly returned - that's the link to the sales thread This potentially has some twist or issue in the body which is the reason it was returned to me. I intended to investigate and do things but never did. So this machine has just been sat on the kitchen counter for quite a while. I can have the main machine sit firmly by adjusting the feet and the drip tray just seems to get a slight angle and the cup tray on top sits at a slight angle as well. The picture below somewhat shows this but it's hard to demonstrate that easily I'v
  6. Hey everyone! 13 months ago, I purchased a black ECM Mechanika IV on here from DavidBondy for £925. I also purchased a few nice accessories such as a black Cafelat knockbox, 12oz Rattleware latte pitcher, digital scale, etc. See photos attached. I recently accepted a job in Canada and cannot take these with me, as much as I'd love to. Everything is in perfect working order. ECM has only had bottled water in it and maintained/cleaned regularly. It also comes with the original ECM naked portafilter, 2 regular portafilters, backflush disk, cleaning brush and all manuals. It has a black powd
  7. For sale this lovely black ECM Mechanika IV, I bought when dhawk was moving to Canada (a few months ago) and it's originally from Bella Barista in April 2013. I've used it relatively infrequently since having it as I've also got the strega and a love of brewed coffee. I'm offering this with an Eric thermometer as a package with the machine. I haven't used the Eric thermometer which was bought in the group buy (costing me around £80). Everything is in good working order, it does seem like the water tank sits slightly high at one end, so that the cup warmer part isn't perfectly flat. It do
  8. Had a slight impulse buy today...A ECM Mechanika IV. I saw it advertised on ebay the other day and picked it up today. Only 5 months old and not a mark on it. Paid a reasonable (IMO) £780 including a brand new coffee catcher and all packaging and both filter handles. This is for my new house which I am hopefully moving into in the next few months. I will be keeping my Gaggia classic and Vario grinder at my parents so will be buying a new grinder shortly - probably a Mazzer SJ with short hopper. I couldn't find much info/reviews about this machine but from the ones I read, they were
