The Mechanika unites eye-catching designs with the engineering skills that the Germans are known for. It lets you extract espresso and steam your milk at the same time for perfect drinks to be enjoyed by you and your loved ones.

Wolfgang Hauck starts the story of ECM 25 years ago with designing the ECM Mechanika, which to this day is still one of their most loved machines. Now for over 10 years it’s into the family’s second generation of beautifully designed machines with German engineering backing them up. The Mechanika is no exception to this fine craftsmanship with every detail being taken into account. Truly these machines are crafted for the espresso enthusiast with the utmost care and quality.

Every feature selected to be used with this machine has been well thought out such as a vibratory pump that allows the machine to have its smaller footprint and rotary dials for easing users on its steam power. It’s without question that no details have been ignored.

The Mechanika’s heat exchange boiler will allow you to extract your espresso and steam your milk at the same time without any complications. This is going to allow you to enjoy your professional quality coffee with your friends and family instead of spending hours behind your machine. This is also going to make it so that you can extract amazing professional quality espresso without sacrificing milk steaming capabilities.

Can I program my machine to use an Eco mode?

Since the Mechanika lacks a PID, it doesn’t have a way to program Eco Mode.

Can I leave my Mechanika on?

Due to the fact that you do not need to worry about burning out a heating element and refilling the boiler, you can leave the machine on. You may end up wearing out some other parts a little sooner if you do.

What is the difference between the ECM Mechanika and the ECM Technika?

While both machines are heat exchange machines, they have 3 notable differences. The first is the Mechanika having a vibratory pump whereas the Technika has a rotary pump. Next is theMechanika using a pressure stat for its steam boiler compared to the PID of the Technika (that also doubles as a shot timer.) Lastly the Mechanika uses rotary dials for its steam and hot water use and the Technika uses joystick controls.
