Performance, precision, and perfection.
The elegantly crafted the ECM Technika IV is a robust prosumer machine. Powered by a large 2.1 liter heat exchanger boiler mated to an E61 grouphead allows the Technika to steam effortlessly along with brew shot after shot perfect espressos. At first look, the quality of the craftsmanship and the attention to detail is clearly evident.
The Technika features an E61 grouphead which delivers a smooth supply of temperature stable water. Also, soft pre-infusion is manually controlled with the grouphead lever. After each shot, the built-in 3-way valve releases grouphead pressure. In addition, the 3-way valve mechanism allows for backflushing. The unit comes with ergonomic 58 mm nickel chrome plated brass portafilter handles but other E61 handles will work on the Technika.
The large 2.1 liter heat exchanger is powered by a 1200 Watt element and provides the user with ample steam to create large lattes and cappuccinos. Steam is dispensed through a ball joint steam wand and controlled with a quick release lever. This style of valve is opened by lifting the knob up or down and will continue to stay open until you release the knob.
Large amounts of hot water can be dispensed for Americanos, teas, etc. Hot water is dispensed through a ball joint steam wand and is also controlled by the quick release knob.
The unit is managed by a control box which ensures the unit is running properly. The control box auto-fills the boiler and will activate the out of water light if the water tank is empty. Furthermore, the Technika has boiler pressure and pump pressure gauge which allow you to dial in the ideal specs with the adjustable pressurestat and expansion valve.
The large cup warming surface can slide out of the way providing access to the water tank and the internals.
