Owning the ECM V-Titan 64
The ECM V-Titan 64 is a powerhouse prosumer/light commercial-level grinder with 1950’s styling and a commercial-grade heart. At the core of the V-Titan are two flat, titanium-coated 64mm burrs, from which it gets its name. When asked, ECM stated these burrs could withstand 1200 kg of coffee before needing replacement. In effect, this translates to burrs that can withstand a staggering 100 years worth of use and still remain sharp. Grinding is controlled by the silver-finished display at the bottom of the machine which features two pre-set grinding times, adjustable to within a tenth of a second. The powerful 450 watt motor lets the V-Titan 64 grind 11 grams of coffee in just about 2.5 seconds, matching or even exceeding most grinders in its price range.
Grind-setting drift has always been a source of frustration for us here at the office, and the ECM V-Titan 64 eliminates this with the critical addition of the worm gear. This adjustment allows you to finely tune your grind setting and lock it in place, ensuring that the grind size is always what you set it to be. Because the worm-gear's adjustments are so fine, this makes the V-Titan something of an espresso specialist. You'll want to keep that in mind if you expect to grind for a range of brew methods, as large adjustments to grind size will take some time and effort. If you plan on sticking to an espresso grind-size, however, the V-Titan will perform very well.
64 mm Titanium-Coated Burrs
The V-Titan's burrs are large and sharp, with an incredible lifespan of 100+ years. You'll sooner pass this grinder down to your kids than replace the burrs.
The V-Titan 64 is a tall grinder, so ECM has developed shorter hoppers and bring down it's height. The hopper has a generous capacity of 17.6 oz.
