ECM’s Technika V Profi PID is an awesome machine for espresso lovers looking to make espresso and milk-based drinks without waking up your family in the morning or disturbing your coworkers in the office. This quiet prosumer gets the job done and makes perfect café-quality beverages every single time and gets my personal seal of approval for the at-home or in-office pro-barista. Let’s fill you in on the details of the Technika V Profi PID.
The Technika V Profi is PID-equipped to ensure stable boiler temperatures. A plus on this machine is the integrated shot timer on the PID display which is super helpful for baristas who appreciate details and consistency when making their daily espresso.
ECM integrated a commercial-style rotary pump for quiet brewing compared to other machines in its class that have a vibration pump. Sneaking off to the break room for your second macchiato is no big deal with the Technika V Profi. You can brew your espresso and steam simultaneously and quietly without disturbing your coworkers or losing out on precious break time.
The Technika V Profi PID features a generous 3-liter water reservoir and can also connect to a direct water line. This gives you the option to move your Technika V Profi around your kitchen or office or skip refilling your water reservoir through the waterline.
The Technika V is an impressive upgrade from its predecessor, the Technika IV. The PID controller with an integrated shot timer, joystick-style steam, and hot water control are two features that we simply love on this machine. The design speaks modern-industrialist and would pair perfectly with a pro-barista in the office or at home.
If you’ve been in the market for an espresso machine that has all of the nuts and bolts, gets the job done and has a great amount of control over brewing and steaming when making cappuccino’s, lattes, macchiatos and more, check out ECM’s Technika V Profi PID, it just might be the perfect prosumer to add to your at-home coffee bar or in your office’s break room!
