ECM Classika PID Espresso Machine Olive Wood

ECM Classika PID with Olive Wood Accents Overview

The ECM Classika PID had us curious out of the box. After a few quick tests, it had our attention. This high-performance semi-automatic comes equipped with olive wood accents and tools we would normally expect of much larger prosumer machines that run for $2000 or more.

Features and Performance

With a custom machined E61 group head and a PID controller, you can expect great temperature stability and the option to adjust brew temperature to bring out more subtle flavors in high-altitude coffee, as well as adjust steam temperature to get the steaming power you like. To complete your set of tools is the easily accessed pump pressure adjustment screw, which can be found beneath the cup tray.

The Classika PID brews with a single 0.75 liter stainless steel boiler, which is an important consideration when it comes to capacity versus needs. The Classika PID is a single-boiler machine, you can pull shot after shot but you cannot brew and steam at the same time like you can with a heat exchanger machine.

You’ll need to cool and fill the boiler after steaming but it is an easy process and doesn’t take long.. This makes the Classika PID good for espresso lovers who want perfectly crafted shots at greatly reduced cost and still have room on your counter for a nice grinder.

  1. Valeria Simon

    Top notch build quality and beautiful to look at even when not actively using. The PID and flow control allow me to dial in shots exactly how I want. I don’t make a lot of milk drinks so the extra workflow steps with the single boiler switching between steam doesn’t bother me. Although I think I might prefer a lever for the steam but that’s not thRead more about review stating Doesn’t get much better than thise machine’s fault. A word of warning though, the feet marked up my countertop (a little elbow grease to mostly remove) so placing on a mat of some sort might be a good idea. Overall a fantastic machine and I couldn’t be happier with it so far!

    ECM Classika PID Espresso Machine With Flow Control arrived today ! Super Fast. Placed the order after hours Saturday and arrived on Wednesday 🙂 Prior to this I was running a Brim 19. Let’s just say build quality, functionality, controllability and shot/temp consistency like night and day. ECM Classika for the definitive Win, hands down !!! ThankRead more about review stating Made the Jump to Prosumer you, HarfanCoffee 🙂

  3. Valeria Meier

    The ECM Classika has been a joy to use after graduating from a Saeco Aroma espresso appliance. After dialing in the Carraro Globo Elite beans and producing shots of espresso, americanos, and lattes I can say that I am firmly a fan of the machine. I have not really played with the flow control yet as I’m still familiarizing myself with processes anRead more about review stating I love this machine.d trying things to perfect the produced shots, but I look forward to trying some things in the future.

    The packing and delivery of the machine was handled well with double boxed package with absorbing foam corners in between the inner and outer box.

  4. Robert Schulte

    Able to get under counter with mm to spare. Made in Germany says nameplate. For the price, meets my needs….single boiler w. PID, flow control.

  5. Brunhild Arnold

    Watching the HFC videos to hone my barista skills. The machine is exquisite in every way. I’m happy I went with chrome accents in my kitchen. I still use my automatic machines in a pinch, but the quality of the extraction doesn’t come close to the ECM.

  6. Maximilian Maier

    This was the first espresso machine I’ve purchased, and it’s been phenomenal. Easy to use, crazy well built, great tasting espresso, and the purchasing experience was a breeze. Thanks HarfanCoffee!

  7. Hedda Stein

    A real delight to use! This machine crafts beautiful espresso once dialed in, and the learning curve isn’t steep. I upgraded from the Gaggia classic, and now I’m enjoying velvety smooth quad shots every morning. You really can’t beat this machine for the cost. Especially with the flow control option. I don’t ever use the steam wand, so I didn’t caRead more about review stating ECM classika with flow control. SO worth it!re about a dual boiler. I honestly have zero complaints or suggestions about how this could possibly get any better!

  8. Welf Schmitt

    Wonderful Espresso Machine. Love the taste of the espresso. Love the ease of use and the quality of the build. This little machine is amazing

  9. Erika Horn

    Great machine at this price. Build quality is high. I enjoy the consistent results thanks to the PID. Not really suited for Americanos, but a dedicated water pitcher fixes that.

  10. Ramóna Fábián

    PID w Flow Control…everything I need for the next stage of my journey learning and enjoying Espresso!
    Beautiful to boot and made in Heidelberg a place that holds my heart to this day.

  11. Barnabás Virág

    A fantastic purchase. This machine has significantly elevated my espresso experience. It is very easy to operate. I am glad i bought it.

  12. Georgina Balla

    Best purchase I’ve ever made and couldn’t be more pleased with this amazing machine. I had a Rancilio Silvia for over 15 years (bought from HarfanCoffee btw) which was very reliable and easy to use thus no complaints. I decided it was time for an upgrade so I spent endless weeks researching different machines and finally came down to this ECM modelRead more about review stating Superb & Amazing. I was reluctant at first to jump from my good reliable and familiar mid-range Rancilio to a more professional advanced ECM. I read in some reviews folks taking longer to adjust before pulling a good shot. This is totally not true in my experience. It was so easy to use and not at all complicated where I pulled the best shots on my first day so transitioning to the ECM was a breeze. I’m loving the upgraded Flow Control for a better tastier extraction and the steam wand for my cappuccino art making skills. Can’t go wrong with ECM.
