ECM Synchronika 25th Anniversary Edition Overview
The ECM Synchronika is a best-in-class dual boiler espresso machine, and to celebrate their 25th anniversary, ECM has released a limited run of special edition machines to celebrate. Featuring the same internals as the standard Synchronika with dual boilers, dual PIDs, a rotary pump, and so much more, this custom variant is all about the premium look and feel. With full anthracite housing, olive wood accents, steel pressure gauges and a custom badge with its unique production number, this machine is a piece of ECM history.
Features and Performance
The upgraded PID and discreet improvements really elevate what you can do with an espresso machine. Expect shots that are exquisite, with 2 bar of steam power at your disposal for a decidedly surprising amount of kick when you want to make a latte or cappuccino.
Less obvious advantages can be found in the iconic E61 brew group, which ECM has updated with stainless-steel internal components, as well as a single top cap for a cleaner aesthetic that other machines lack. These stainless-steel internals add much greater durability and resistance to calcium build-up for more straightforward maintenance, streamlining the experience of owning an espresso machine overall.
When plumbed in, you can take advantage of longer, low-pressure pre-infusion to bring out the more unique flavor notes in specialty coffee. While this isn't unique to the Synchronika, not many machines can do this.
Why You Should Get It
When paired with the proper grinder, the ECM Synchronika has pulled shots for us that compare with some of our best local cafes. The subtleties in technical improvement and ECM’s nuanced innovation shine in the Synchronika, making it one of the best-equipped prosumer machines on the market.
