Overview

Back to Top
It's a rare thing to find a machine that seamlessly combines form and function, a feat that has been achieved by ECM's Technika IV Profi espresso machine. From the outside, you'll be drawn to the curved stainless steel housing, front-mounted pressure gauges, and custom grouphead, but it is what you're not seeing that rounds out the entire package. The commercial grade internal components were selected by German engineers at ECM for superior performance and build quality.
 
Before getting into the internals of the machine, the housing and frame deserve a special mention. Made of curved stainless steel, the machine is gorgeous to look at, but it's important to note that the frame is actually one solid piece. To save money, some companies will weld the drip tray onto the body of their machine. Not content with cutting corners, ECM has actually built the drip tray as part of the frame, making it far more durable. Additionally, the body of the machine has been designed to absorb noise produced by the internal components, which, when coupled with the much quieter rotary pump, results in a near-silent brewing process.
 
With regards to brewing, the machine uses a 2.1 liter stainless steel, heat exchange boiler and the aforementioned rotary pump. Stainless steel is known for its heat retention and ability to resist corrosion. The heat exchanger allows you to brew and steam at the same time. Similar to the design of commercial machines, the boiler is mounted horizontally by a solid bracket to protect it from from shifting during shipping. The boiler is heated by a 1400 watt heating element and the pump is monitored by a Sirai pressure stat. Temperature stability is promoted throughout the machine, not only by the boiler but by the E61 group head and chrome plated brass portafilters as well. The Technika IV Profi comes with both a single and double spouted portafilter, each has been designed with weighted handles to ensure that they remain balanced in your hand.
 
If you're looking to make the machine a more permanent fixture in your kitchen, it can connected to a water line, eliminating the need to refill. This is made easier by the fact the the flow is controlled by a valve, located on the bottom of the machine, allowing you to manually switch from one water source to the other. Remember, even if you opt out of plumbing the machine, the water reservoir still holds 3 liters of water.
 
You'll notice that ECM has emblazoned its seal on the machine. That's because they're as proud to have made it as you'll be to own it.

Features

Back to Top

Balanced Portafilters

One of the first things you'll notice about the portafilters are how balanced they feel in your hand. The weighted end offsets the weight of the basket, keeping you from having to overcompensate with your wrist. On par with commercial grade machines, the Technika IV's portafilters are made of chrome-plated brass for increased temperature stability.

Durable Stainless Steel Construction

ECM refers to the Technika as the Rolls-Royce of semi-automatic machines, and for good reason. The housing is made entirely of stainless steel, and has been smoothed and curved on the edges, resulting in a sleek and streamlined machine. ECM wasn't content with simply welding the drip tray onto the machine, it's actually part of the frame for enhanced durability and build quality.

Reservoir and Water Line

The ample water reservoir holds nearly 3 liters or 101 ounces of water. However, you can do away with refilling altogether by using the water line adapter. Located underneath the machine, the Technika IV has a manual valve, allowing you to easily switch between water sources.

Rotary Pump and Silent Operation

This is a feature that you truly need to hear to believe. Brewing is an incredibly quiet process, thanks to the rotary pump and the machine's specially designed sound absorbing body.

Horizontally Mounted Heat Exchange Boiler

Similar to a commercial machine, the 2.1 liter boiler is mounted horizontally by a solid bracket and made of stainless steel for enhanced heat retention and corrosion resistance. The heat exchanger allows the Technika IV to brew and steam at the same time and the boiler is heated by a 1400 watt element for a consistent brew temperature of approximately 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sirai Pressure Stat and Brew Pressure Gauge

Brew pressure is monitored with a commercial grade Sirai pressure stat and can be viewed on the gauge on the front of the machine. Brew pressure can also be adjusted via a switch located on the bottom of the machine.

Insulated Steam and Hot Water Wands

To help prevent accidental burns, both the steam and hot water wands have been insulated to keep them from getting too hot too quickly. The steam wand sports a two-hole tip, ideal for frothing milk for lattes and cappuccinos. The hot water wand can dispense water for tea, cocoa, Americanos, and more.

Power use and heat output

How much heat does an E61 put out when the unit is on and how much power does it draw.  We only make coffee in the morning (and ococailly on weekends in the afternoon).  Does leaving this on literally heat the kitchen a little.  Does it radiate heat a lot?  Lastly does anyone know what the...

DanielCulver aswered:
Yes, left on long enough it will add heat to a room, just as a refrigerator or oven will. How quickly depends on the size of the room.
Sanfam aswered:
As others have said, the machine will definitely heat a room.  However, I'm glad to look into the possibility of adding this to our comparison database for future (and popular current) products.

how much does the body flex when the portafilter is inserted?
Erik aswered:
The body does not flex at all when inserting the portafilter on this machine.  The ECM utilizes a one piece, solid steel chassis and weighs well over 50 pounds and is one of the most solidly built prosumer machines you will find.
