ECM Controvento Dual Boiler PID Switchable Espresso Machine
The ECM Controvento is the first dual boiler espresso machine from ECM Manufacture in Germany. With its new, extravagant design, it veers away from the classic look and races “against the wind,” as the name implies. The ECM Controvento makes a statement like no other!
The temperature of the coffee boiler and the steam boiler can be regulated separately via the PID display (shown in pictures T1 and T2). This way, each coffee lover can find their own perfect temperature. Because of the quiet but strong rotary pump, the ECM Controvento is a good fit in an office or espresso bar.
The PID also has a built in cleaning cycle on the PID.
The standard color of the panels is anthracite. but we can special order (at additional charge OF $350 USD) any color side panels for you. For instance, the blue color shown in some pictures was special ordered. While Anthracite usually takes up to 8 weeks delivery, special order colors take up to 12 weeks for delivery. All orders require 50% payment required by bank wire transfer or check (sorry no credit cards nor PayPal as they require delivery in 30 days) and the balance can be paid by credit card before shipping. ALL MACHINES ARE MADE TO ORDER IN GERMANY.
The ECM Controvento espresso machine can only be shipped on a pallet.
