With the ECM Mechanika V Slim, the small all-rounder proves that less can really be more - in a compact design. The V Slim is a compact and modern take on heat exchange espresso machines with a host of cosmetic and mechanical improvements over its previous incarnation. At under 10” wide, the Mechanika has slimmed down by more than 2 inches thanks to the vertical re-orienting of the boiler. The now stainless steel boiler has a slightly increased capacity of 2.2L and features thermal insulation for greater energy efficiency. The redesigned interior also resulted in an update to the OPV which is now accessible from the top of the machine and located underneath the reservoir lid.
In addition to its slim profile, ECM has upped the ante on the Mechanika’s aesthetics. High quality steel legs, etched steam and hot water valves, and red knobs add touches of elegance previously absent in past designs. Must haves likes dual brew and steam pressure gauges, a set of angled portafilters, and a custom E61 group help to guarantee that good things really do come in small packages.FEATURES
