ECM Classika PID Espresso Machine

Overview:

The atmosphere of an Italian espresso bar at homemade for the smallest of kitchens. The ECM Classika PID is perfect for small spaces considering it is a single-boiler machine. It satisfies the highest demands, perfect espresso preparation, and absolute espresso pleasure. Further review this timeless, elegant classic in clear, stainless steel design.

Single boiler system:
  • Stainless steel boiler – The boiler is made of stainless steel which is less susceptible to limescale. Typically stainless steel boilers do not retain their heat as well as copper or brass boilers. This machine compensates that by being wrapped with insulation.
  • Short heat-up time – Approximately 20 minutes which is faster when comparing to a heat exchange system.
E-61 grouphead:
  • Constantly heated – Hot water circulates from the heat exchanger through the grouphead and back to keep the grouphead and your portafilter nice and hot. This keeps the grouphead at a constant, stable temperature compared to other groupheads that have a built-in heating element.
  • Pre-infusion – The lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds. When you pull the lever half way up, it will open the valve to allow water into the grouphead without activating the pump.
PID controls / pressure gauge:
  • PID temperature programming – Allows you to program the boiler temperature for different coffee blends.
  • Pressure gauge – Measures pump/brew pressure (0 – 16 bar) and should only be looked at while extracting espresso or adjusting the OPV with a blind filter in the portafilter inserted into the grouphead. This gauge has no meaning at any other time.
Vibratory pump:
  • Efficient – 41 watts, rated up to 15 bar with air valve bypass. You only need 9 bar to extract perfect espresso, and wattage has no correlation to longevity.
  • Cost-effective – Pumps will degrade in performance over time. Replacing a vibration pump will cost less than a rotary vane pump.
Steam / hot water wand:
  • Rotational knob – Allows for easier control of the intensity.
  • Multi-directional – Allows for more movement and flexibility
  • 2-hole steam tip – Allows for a slow gradual build-up of microfoam.
  • The grip on the wand protects your fingers from heat while the full-size steam wand allows greater steam power over a no-burn wand.
Construction:
  • Stainless steel body: Polished to a mirror finish. Black enamel-painted steel frame.
  • Passive cup warmer on the top: Heat from the boiler rises and heats the top panel. Just like other espresso machines, it can take up to two hours to preheat your cups. Therefore, it is better to flash heat the cups from hot water from the grouphead or steam/water wand.
  • Three-way solenoid valve: Allows quick removal of portafilter after the espresso extraction and immediately prepare for the next extraction.
  • OPV (over pressure valve): Easily adjustable. Located underneath the cup warmer tray (8.5 – 12 bar).
  • Rocker switches and indicator lights: For the “On/Off” function and for steam and hot water.
Accessories included with the ECM Classika PID:
  • Portafilters – Dual spout portafilter. The filter head is solid brass and 58mm diameter. It now has an angled handle.
  • Filter baskets – 1-cup filter basket which holds approximately 7 grams. 2-cup filter basket which holds approximately 14 grams. Blind filter basket which you can use for backflushing. All baskets are 58 mm in diameter.
  • Tamper – It now has an upgraded tamper. The tamper has a stainless steel bottom with a plastic handle.
  • Cleaning brush – Used for cleaning the grouphead. Ergonomically designed with an angle for easier usage. The neck has special ridges to keep hot water from dripping to your hand.
  • Water tank hose – Water feeds through a hole at the bottom of the water tank. You can connect this hose and fit a particle filter or a water softener on the other end.
  • Instruction manual – Written in both German and English.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

  1. Direct water connection: This machine can only operate as a tank model. It cannot be hooked up to a water line.

      Please check the one that is inside your machine to confirm which one you need.

    2. I'm having trouble with wet steam out of the machine. I'm maxing out the steam boiler temp and doing an extended purge. When steaming 100g milk i'm still getting between 20-35% water gain. Is this normal? Bonus points if you can tell me how much water gain you're getting out of the same amount of milk.

      Remove water as soon as you depress the steam switch. You need to make some air space for the steam to build up.

    4. I have a 6-year old Classika (non-PID model). It has developed a leak (a fairly consistent drip/seep...a drip/run every 3-5 seconds) from the area where the Group Head attaches to the front of the machine. I have accessed the interior and tightened up the bolts that hold the group head onto the front..as well as tightened up the 2 water supply lines...no change. The drip occurs just before and during drawing a shot. The group head is cleaned regularly and the machine is descaled regularly.

      Asked by Mary on December 16, 2021 3:31 pm
      Answered by the admin Unfortunately, we do not have any particular bottled water that we can recommend. You can use filtered water with a water softener. The most important thing is to use softened water. Do not use water that has calcium or magnesium because that can lead to limescale buildup.

      Yes, it currently does have a shot timer on the PID display when extracting.

    18. The steam thermostat in the center on top of the boiler started leaking and when I tried to remove it to see what was going on, I only noticed one metal gasket, while the parts picture shows two gaskets. Probably the rubber one is gone or melted down somehow. As a result of the small leak, the water sitting on top of the boiler managed to ruin the safety thermostat (it broke in half). I also have a question about the steam thermostat, because even though the parts picture from this document: https://www.1st-line.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Classika-II-Parts.pdf shows a small center hole where the thermostat is screwed in, in my ClassiKa II PID model I have instead a larger hole (at least 5 mm) which opens inside the boiler with a one inch metal probe attached to the part, which appears to be more a steam valve than a thermostat. So I'm not sure if the listed part C100001816 is the right replacement part for my machine. Do you have these parts in stock and if not can they be ordered? Thank you in advance.

      Answered by the admin

      The two gaskets are probably copper or metal washers as there is no need for rubber gaskets for these thermostats. The reason is no water comes from the threaded section of these thermostats. On non-PID models, there is a thermostat for steam, one for coffee, and one fore safety. On PID models, there is one for safety and one for steam.

      The metal probe, as referenced, is the PID sensor problem to monitor the boiler temperature.

      C100001816 is the steam thermostat part.

      It is rare that a steam wand needs replacement. If the machine was purchased through 1st-line Equipment, please use the contact link at the top of our web site, and submit a more detailed problem that your machine is experiencing. Please include your 1st-line invoice or order number in the submission.

    24. My ECM Classika is 4 years old and for the first time I'm seeing metallic flakes discharged from the steam wand after descaling the machine. My understanding is this unit has an uncoated stainless steel boiler. Where would the chrome flakes be coming from? Can anyone say what may be going on and how to resolve this?

      We are sorry to hear about this. We have never heard of flaking from the stainless steel boiler. It may be from the heating element or the chrome plated steam valve. Parts will need to be removed and inspected to find the fault. Once the part is identified, it will need to be cleaned or replaced.

      In most cases, it is the heating element. However, a visual inspection and checking with a mulitmeter is usually best. Then, the hardest part is finding the cause. Just replacing a part does not always correct the cause.
