Hi there I have been the proud owner of an ECM Barista for a couple of months now ,fantastic machine,real quality and plenty of bling although i have a lot to learn in the Espresso making world.

 

It must be the choice brand if you need to learn... ive not got a clue ;)

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

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

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

How do you guys find the ECM ? Looking at the ECM barista model

 

Im loving it, bit it's not the Barista so i couldn't comment on that models coffee making ability

 

But what i can say is.... the build quality will be top drawer!!

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 !
