ECM Mechanika V Slim Espresso Machine

NEW Features

  • 3-stage temperature switch: Located on the bottom right of the machine. Switch between 3 different preset temperatures to suit your coffee/steam needs. The lowest temperature is for darker roast coffee. The middle temperature is for medium roasts. The higher temperature is for lighter roasts and more steam pressure.
  • Preinfusion: This process prewets your coffee in your portafilter. This helps bind the coffee puck for an even extraction.
  • Eco mode:  A built-in function that shuts the machine off after 90 minutes from your last coffee shot. This feature along with the other sensors in the water tank and boiler allows you to leave your machine on all the time without the worry of burning out your machine. Lifting the grouphead lever will exit eco mode.

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.
  • Flow control capable: You can purchase one of our flow control devices for the grouphead and be able to customize your espresso shots on the fly!

Heat Exchange System

  • Stainless steel, insulated: 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 for that by being wrapped with insulation.
  • Shape change: The heat exchange boiler can now go to a maximum of 2.2 L. The shape change allows ECM to retain a lot of room on the machine’s interior.
  • Pull a shot & steam milk at the same time: Steam is always readily available. Therefore there is no wait time going from coffee to steam mode.
  • Auto refill: A sensor in the boiler detects when the water in the boiler is low.

Tank/Reservoir System

  • Easy to fill: With the open top, it makes it very easy to refill the tank with water. However, the best practice is to remove the tank when filling.
  • Easy to clean: The open top also makes it easy to clean and rinse all the way to the inside bottom of the tank if necessary.
  • Easy to install: When inserting the tank, just make sure the bottom feed is on the right.
  • Low water sensor: Magnetic float will deactivate the heating element when the water in the tank is low.

Modifiable Brew Pressure

  • OPV placement– The OPV on the Mechanika VI Slim is located on the top to modify the brew pressure. The valve, which is placed below the reservoir lid, can also be modified simultaneously with the brew pressure gauge to simply create rapid revisions when brewing.

Separate pressure gauges

  • Steam pressure gauge: Located on the top left. Measures from 0 to 3 bar. The optimal pressure is between 0.8 and 1.1.
  • Brew pressure gauge: Located on the top right. Measures from 0 to 16 bar. The optimal pressure is between 8 and 10.

Vibratory Pump

  • Efficient: 41 watts, rated up to 15 bar. 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

  • Rotary knobs: Allows for better control of steaming power & hot water flow compared to joystick knobs.
  • Multi-directional: Allows for more movement and flexibility.
  • “No burn”: The wands are insulated to allow you to touch anywhere on the arm. Please note that after very long periods of steaming or pouring hot water, the arm will be too hot to touch. We recommend only touching the rubber grips on each wand.
  • 2-hole steam tip: Allows for a slow gradual build-up of microfoam.

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.

Backflushing - should be performed with detergent minimum every 50 espresso extractions. A short backflush 'can' be performed daily. The paddle on the grouphead should be all the way to the right side of the grouphead.

For optimal performance reducing limescale, use the BILT Osmotic Scale Reduction cloth by removing from the bag, rinsing it under cold water, and placing it in the water tank/reservoir of your espresso machine.

We do not advise descaling as we find machines last longer with limescale prevention. Descaling eats away at the metals and gaskets inside the machine. Thus, the internals weaken from both the scale build up as well as the descaler.

The grouphead gasket and dispersion screen should be replaced every 6-12 months.
