Build Your Coffee Bar and Save a Bundle
When the ECM Elektronika II Profi was revealed to us, we were immediately intrigued by it's preference for automatic controls. Dedicated volumetric brewing buttons are something you don't really see in the prosumer market, where manual control is key. However, considering ECM's philosophy on innovative design, it's no surprise something so bold could arrive.
With the Elektronika II Profi, you can expect ECM's signature features: dual-pressure gauges, an E61 group, joystick water valve controls, and a sleek housing with rounded edges. The rotary pump works in combination with the Elektronika II's sound-absorbing design to make brewing nearly silent as well. However, the real convenience is found in the array of volumetric controls, which automatically dispense pre-programmed volumes of espresso and can be reprogrammed to your preference. We've found this to be especially handy when making lattes; just press a button to brew and forget while you get to work steaming your milk. Because brewing is automatic, you won't need to keep an eye out on your espresso while you froth. For when you want a little more control, manual brewing is still an option.
This is a great machine for anyone who has guests who may not be as experienced with pulling a shot, or busy bodies that want to get other things done while your drink is prepared.
The Elektronika II Profi is equipped with a 1400 W stainless steel boiler with a capacity of 2.1 L. As a heat exchanger machine, you can expect to brew and steam without waiting, or even at the same time.
Switchable Water Source
With the flip of a switch, the Elektronika II Profi can choose which source of water is being used, between the reservoir and a direct water line connection. The reservoir boasts a capacity of 3 liters.
E61 Brew Group
The E61 grouphead is constantly heated with water from the thermosyphon system for temperature stability. It also features a pre-infusion cylinder to aid in the extraction process.
Handmade & High-End Construction
The machine is housed in mirror-finished, stainless steel panels. It rests on a one-piece internal steel frame, which protects it from bending or bowing during shipping or as the result of continuous use.
