    Machine and support

    Posted by Brett on 20th Jan 2020

    Possibly the worlds worst barista yet the ECM Technika V has made me into someone my wife actually needs around the house. Cannot thank the wonderful support, advice and honesty from Ofra. You have a lifelong customer - not to mention a happy wife who has extended the lease on her husband :)

    Technika IV Profi - rotary

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Mar 2018

    I purchased this a few months ago, upgrading from a much used Breville Barista Express. A considerable price differential and a learning curve for the new machine so I've delayed the review until things have settled. First of all, it looks a million dollars on the kitchen bench. Gleaming stainless steel with classic design, admired by all. The pressure and temperature dials look like expensive Swiss watches. I wasn't so sure about the levers rather than knobs but I now really like them - very quick and efficient. After a bit of experimentation with dose weights, shot volumes and times, things are now going well and coffees are consistently of cafe quality, and better than some cafes. It's a pleasure to use each day. Relatively quiet in operation, efficient and easy to clean. Steaming is so powerful that it took some time initially to adjust to after the Breville. Similarly with hot water which gushes out with force. The low water level cutoff works well and water tank only needs refilling every few days. Overall very happy with the purchase.

    The Technika Defeata

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jun 2013

    Like the previous reviewer, I also had Miss Silvia for close to 4 yrs of reliable and consistent performance. The major issue I had was trying to teach my beloved wife how to perfect the art of a flat white only to be frustrated with the switching and wait time from pouring a shot to steaming the milk.
    Then came along Miss Profi and the business case to justify such a beauty. I was certainly not disappointed on the build quality and ergonomics of this machine. It stands gleaming and proud in the corner of the kitchen for all to see and drool over.
    Pulling consistent shoot(s) is easy and always rich is crème every time. As for the milk steaming, this is now an effortless task and now even my wife enjoys doing it.
    Only one small gripe I have (there always has to be one), there is no external indicator of the water reservoir level, so unfortunately have run out of water whilst pulling a shot a few times (good boiler protection though). Now I just top up the reservoir on a weekly basis so resolve the issue. Maybe a revision mod in the future?
    We have decided that Miss Profi will be a family air-loom and be passed down the generation as the inheritance to the family when the time comes.
    Great job ECM.

    Love at First Sight

    Posted by Kassy on 10th Feb 2013

    I replaced my Rancilio Silvia on a whim. There is nothing wrong with her and she has not missed a beat in 7 or so years. Miss Silvia and I worked well together, we had refined our technique and could make great coffee at any time. I was excited about the Technika arriving but unsure of what actual benefit I would find.

    But on opening the box and seeing her gleaming body I knew she was a bit special. Set up didn't take very long and within minutes of getting up to pressure we were drinking good coffee. A few days later we had exquisite coffee and I was steaming milk just to give me an excuse to use her, and she was given a name.

    Practically speaking the ergonomics are great, everything is where it should be, nothing fouls the flow of the coffee making. The steam wand is on the opposite side to Silvia which I thought would be a challenge but it wasn't, and the steam itself is just wonderful. Not having to wait for it come up to temperature is fantastic, multiple coffees are made quickly and easily and stay at temperature.

    The build quality is all there, wonderful German precision. The levers are great and I enjoy the feeling of using a solid machine. There is no need to brace to lock in the portafilter like with the Silvia. The cup warmer is great, cups are warmed. Having lived with the nagging fear that I would let Miss Silvia's boiler run dry the automatic low water cut off is such a relief. She is also very quiet to run, heat up and during operation. The drip tray is large and deep so there have been no spills on the walk to the sink.

    The couple of little negatives are that the spouts on the double portaflter are wider than a measuring shot glass so it made setting up the initial shots a bit tricky. It is noted on the machine, but catches me by surprise sometimes that everything gets hot! I have a couple of little love burns from not paying attention. The coffee dose is quite sensitive, if it is a few grams out the portafilter won't fit. I have apparently become imprecise in my coffee dosing so I am working on that.

    After a few weeks of getting to know each other Miss Griff is now an integral part of the household and I sometimes wonder how I ever made coffee without her.
