ECM Heidelberg owners...

Recommended Posts

Anymore ECM owners?

 

I noticed that there isn't a sub section for ECM machines, I guess I'm (we are) in the minority then.

 

i like to be different :good:

Not sure about that but i chose because of the good review on here and the build quality for the money.I think this machine looks every bit as good as the Rocket Giotto but at a more reasonable price.Cant fault it.

Well packaged arent they ! Get it out of that box and working you wont look back.

Must admit loving the Profitec 700, any ideas where you can get hold of a E61 lever handle like on the ECM Heidelberg Mechanika IV as my machine only has a plastic one, much prefer the ECM Portfilter holders over the Profitec ones too, otherwise all good

What's the difference?

Do Bella Barista sell them in the spares sections?

I really wanted to have get to a decent level with the Gaggia / SJ.... Then move on and taste the difference. I think I'm nearly there ;)

also, where my coffee area is ive got a run of worktop with the sink in it. The coffee machine and grinder sit above the washing machine and dishwasher. This is ok with the Gaggia and SJ, but before I can put the 27kg ECM and your old beast the K10 - 15kg(?) I need to put an extra support in :starving:

Here is some simple advise , open your new machine , put the old one away....

All you are doing is learning how to make coffee with a machine that isnt very users friendly at making coffee

You are not learning " extra skills " or brownie points or on some mythical pathway that must be completed :)

Open the new machine stop temp surfing , and you'll coffee will get instantly more repeatable and enjoyable


I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

Yeah I don't know how you can still use that tiny little gaggia when you've got a e61 sitting in a box?! Use it like it's meant to be mate

You sure have some nerves! If I had such a beauty stashed away in a box , I would have been all over the thing minutes after it had arrived. I would have even taken a day off work to play with it. :D

As a fellow proud ECM owner (Barista in my case) I would also love to see a sub section for them. I'm sure over time they will become very, very popular. Superbly built, look gorgeous and perform brilliantly. Can't ask for more really !
