The ECM Mechanika Slim is the latest addition from the ECM house, replacing the original Mechanika model. A stunning Heat Exchange with an e61 group head and the smallest footprint to fit on the most limited kitchen benches.
Built to save on space without sacrificing performance, the Mechanika Slim is significantly narrower than its predecessor. Other updates include high quality steel legs and the etching of ECM into the steam and water valves.
ECM E61 Group
Renowned for its contributions to maintaining temperature stability in professional grade espresso machines, the E61 is constantly heated with water from the thermosyphon system. Unique to ECM’s E61 machines, the redesigned top bolt adds an extra touch of elegance to the aesthetics.
Adjustable Brew Pressure
Accessible from the top of the machine, the OPV can be used to adjust brew pressure by diverting water away from the group. Located just beneath the reservoir lid, the valve can be adjusted in conjunction with the brew pressure gauge, making it easier than ever to make quick changes while brewing.
Dual Pressure Gauges
Located on either side of the brew group, the gauges allow you to keep an eye on brew and steam pressure.
Vertically Mounted Stainless Steel Boiler
The Mechanika Slim has received a few updates under the hood as well. The heat exchange boiler has been upgraded from copper to stainless steel with a slightly increased 2.2L capacity. The vertical orientation has allowed ECM to save a significant amount of space inside the machine.
A hallmark of ECM's espresso machines are their ergonomic portafilters. The weighted end offsets the weight of the basket, keeping you from having to overcompensate with your wrist. On par with commercial grade machines, the portafilters are made of chrome-plated brass for increased temperature stability.
