ECM C-Manuale 54 Espresso Grinder

The ECM C-Manuale 54 is one of ECM's semi-automatic espresso grinders. The stepped adjustment dial allows for easier transition from fine to coarse settings.

Grinding adjustment
  • Stepped - Adjustment dial is located underneath the hopper. The entire dial has a numbering system so you can remember your current grind setting easier. Turn clockwise for a coarser grind and counterclockwise for a finer grind.
  • Setting lock – A setting lock button keeps your current setting. This helps prevent users from accidentally altering it and spending time to find your correct setting again.
Grinding burrs
  • Flat burrs - Large size at 54 mm. The larger the size, the more of a grinding surface, resulting in faster production.
  • High rpm - Faster spinning rate at 1400 rpm. The higher the speed, the faster the production, which can increase efficiency and reduce wait times.
  • Easy access - Remove the bean hopper & the set screw. There are 3 Allen key screws (~2.3 mm) that hold the upper holder in place. After removing the screws, turn the upper burr holder counter clockwise until the top assembly comes off. This will give you access to the burrs and the grinding chamber. The burrs themselves are held in with 3 flat head screws.
Semi-automatic grinding
  • Easy operation - The long vertical plate activates a microswitch. This is what starts the grinding process. The plate extends below the fork if you are grinding into the container.
Bean hopper
  • Low profile - The total height of the ECM C-Manuale 54 is approximately 14." It will easily fit under standard 18" overhead cabinets.
  • Stopper - A door near the bottom of the hopper can be pushed in to close the opening. This allows you to remove the hopper with beans inside so you can easily change the beans. There will be some beans already passed in the burrs which you will have to grind out first before removing the hopper.
Portafilter fork
  • Ease of use - Accommodates most portafilters. The clearance from the fork to the funnel is approximately 2.5."
  • Container grinding - The forks requires a wrench to remove the holding nut. However the coffee funnel and fork sit high on the grinder. You can fit any small container (under 3") underneath the fork.
Grinds catch tray
  • Easy to "install" - There are no screws or hooks. The tray forms around the front legs of the grinder.
  • Convenient - As easy as it is to "install," it’s just as easy to remove to discard any excess grinds. There are other comparable models that do not have a tray at all.
Accessories included
  • Instruction manual - Written in 2 languages: German, English.
Notes

Espresso Coffee Grinder Warnings:

  • Changing grind settings: It is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered on and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. To remedy this, you will have to open up the grinder to get access to the grinding burrs. This issue will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.
  • Electrical cord: For most grinders, the cord is placed between the packaging (foam or cardboard) and the underside body of the grinder. During shipping, it is normal for a bend or insignificant blemish/slice to damage the cord.
  • Finding coffee grinds in a new grinder: Most manufacturers test their grinders with coffee beans before they leave their facility. Unfortunately, they are not always able to get every trace of coffee out of the grinders after testing. As a result, you may find coffee beans or grinds inside your grinder, or there may be grinds in the packaging.
  • Static issues: There are static issues with all grinders, even the highest-quality models. We firmly believe that the static comes from the coffee beans. If you are having static problems with your coffee grinder, try using a different blend of beans.
  • Electrical: To avoid electrical damage (which is not considered a manufacturer’s defect), please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. A surge without protection can damage a grinder at the power switch, the capacitor, the motor, or the wiring.
  • Burr cleaning: For routine maintenance of the grinding burrs, we recommend using grinder cleaning agents. We do not recommend any removal of the burrs or the burr carrier for cleaning (unless necessary) as re-assembly can cause damage.
  • Replacing burrs: NEVER use a flathead screwdriver and hammer to wedge under the burrs for removal. This could badly damage your grinder.
