ECM Classika PID Espresso Machine

ECM Classika PID 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 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 nice grinder.

  1. Julian Garrido

    The PID provides constant temperature improving consistency of shots. The smaller width of the machine makes for a good fit in small area. The boiler produces large volume of steam and as long as you don’t need to make multiple milk drinks in quick succession the single boiler is a good choice for small areas. I did run into restricted adjustment Read more about review stating The PID provides constant temperaturewith the flow control due to me tightening the valve too much. Excellent video on website quickly brought back functionality. Don’t tighten the valve with more than one finger!

    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 HARFAN COFFEE) 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.

    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.
