Overview

When we first got our hands on the Technika IV Profi from ECM, we saw an engineering delight. This machine takes the best variety of each individual component and combines them to make a dream machine.

From the outside, you'll be drawn to the curved stainless steel housing, front-mounted pressure gauges, and the customized grouphead with a single topcap, but it’s what you're not seeing that rounds out the entire package. Made of curved stainless steel, the machine is gorgeous to look at, but it's important to note that the frame is actually one solid piece. To save money, some companies will weld the drip tray onto the body of their machine. Not content with cutting corners, ECM has actually built the drip tray as part of the frame, making it far more durable. Additionally, the body of the machine has been designed to absorb noise produced by the internal components, which, when coupled with the much quieter rotary pump, results in a near-silent brewing process.

For brewing power, the machine uses a 2.1 liter stainless steel heat exchanger style boiler and rotary pump. Stainless steel is known for its durability and resistance to corrosion. The heat exchanger allows you to brew and steam at the same time. Similar to the design of commercial machines, the boiler is mounted horizontally by a solid bracket to protect it from from shifting during shipping. The boiler is heated by a 1400 watt heating element and monitored by a commercial-grade Sirai pressure stat. Temperature stability is promoted throughout the machine, not only by the boiler but by the E61 brew group and chrome plated brass portafilters as well. The Technika IV Profi comes with both a single and double spouted portafilter, equipped with ergonomic stainless steel handles designed to fit well in-hand and counter-weighted for balance.

ECM’s signature can be found in their steam & hot water joysticks, which are some of the easiest to control among prosumer machines. You can flick them up or down, lock them in place, and dispense with very little movement required. We found that you can even half-cock the joysticks to partially open the valves and limit water flow at your convenience, which is useful for when you don’t need the full power of the machine.

If you're looking to make the machine a more permanent fixture in your kitchen, it can connected to a water line, eliminating the need to refill. A valve located on the bottom of the machine allows you to manually switch from one water source to the other. Remember, even if you opt out of plumbing the machine, the water reservoir still holds 3 liters of water.

You'll notice that ECM has emblazoned its seal on the machine. That's because they're as proud to have made it as you'll be to own it.
