Casa V single boiler, dual purpose system

  • Brass, insulated – The ECM Casa V boiler is made of brass which retains heat better than stainless steel. Typically copper boilers are more susceptible to limescale when you compare to stainless steel boilers. Therefore, we highly recommend using a water softener. The manufacturer wraps the boiler with insulation for maximum heat retention.
  • Boiler volume – With a 0.4 liter capacity, this machine has one of the largest boilers on the market under $1,000.
  • High wattage heating element – The heating element rates at a very high 1200 watts. This allows for quicker reaction time when cold water enters the boiler, shorter heat up times, and quick transition from coffee to steam mode.
  • Over pressure valve (O.P.V.) – Easy access on the top of the machine, underneath the cup warming tray. This adjusts the brew pressure. Turn clockwise to increase and counter-clockwise to decrease.


  • Push button controls – Simple to use. All controls are on the front face of the machine. The main controls are on the left side in a 2×2 grid.
  • Power switch – Located in the front upper left. The light above indicates that the unit is on.
  • Coffee switch – Located in the front upper right. The light above indicates the pump is on running water through the grouphead.
  • Steam switch – Located in the front lower left. The light above indicates the heating element is active.
  • Hot water switch – Located in the front lower right. The light above indicates the wand is active for hot water.
  • Steam knob – Located on the front right. Being on the front instead of the right reduces the overall width and helps save counter space. After activating steam or hot water mode, turn the knob counter-clockwise to open the wand.

Pressure gauge

  • Pressure gauge – Displays in real time the pressure during coffee extraction. Only 9-10 bar is needed to make espresso. This gauge will help perfect your espresso shot.
  • Display – Our current stock has the newer display that reads every 4 bar.

Steam / water wand

  • Multi-purpose – Used for both steam or hot water depending on the current mode.
  • Multi-directional – Allows for flexibility to steam on the side of the machine. Enables you to prepare creamy cappuccinos.
  • Very short wait time – The small boiler and very high wattage heating element, cuts the wait time from coffee to steam.

Vibration Pump

  • Efficient – 41 watts (manufacturer can change), 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 and usually average useful life is 5 years. Easy area to self-replace. Replacing a vibration pump will cost less than a rotary vane pump.

Tank / Reservoir


Parts & accessories included

  • Portafilters – Dual spout portafilter. 58 mm in diameter. Commercial grade quality similar to the other ECM machines.
  • 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 use for backflushing. 58 mm in diameter.
  • Tamper – A solid 58mm tamper. No need to upgrade.
  • Cleaning brush – A brush specifically for cleaning the grouphead. There are ridges on the neck of the brush to help prevent scalding water from reaching your hand.
  • Silicon hose – This attaches to the water tank adapter if you are going to use an in line water softener.
  • Instructional manual – Written in 3 languages: German, English, and Dutch.
