Very happy with purchase, good price good quality machine.
Think they could improve the plastic covering on the portafilter rest as it seems to attract grounds, not easy to keep clean. Not sure whether to try to remove the plastic (what's underneath)? or live with it. But very happy with machine 5stars
The taste of these medium roasted beans is amazing! A perfect blend and will be buying more! Highly recommend!
Simple to use and makes great coffee. Uses more water to flush and would be better to have a deeper tray as well as larger water container. Otherwise quiet operation with easy to use controls.
Quality made, looks great and perfect espresso every time! It took me awhile to get use to it but now I get consistent cafe quality coffee every day. Doesn't take up much bench space either.
Initially seemed rather excessive, but on investigation was not out of kilter with NZ national freight charges, given the distance involved
One of the best Sample Packs I have tried and also the freshest. Hard to decide which blend to re-order all are so appealing and none not worth trying again. Delivery during Covid period has very good.
What a great Coffee Grinder. Easy to operate for no-mess grinding.
An outstanding quality product.
This pitcher is the just the right size for 1 cup of coffee! So glad we bought it - no wastage of milk & perfectly steamed milk. Highly recommended 👌
It took a while to get the hang of all the recipes
but when done it makes great coffee. I agree that the drip tray could have been deeper.
Very happy with the purchase.
I have been lost for word in how amazing the taste is even after a week old it is still pouring like liquid gold. I have been a Campos coffee man for many years but now it’s WOW…..
Nice tamper, wooden turned handle material is functional but could be a little bigger, apart from that the tamper does exactly what it should and its pretty consistent with good bricks and dry grounds! Always a pleasure to deal with these guys and will continue to support them. Thanks.
ECM Classika is a wonderful machine. It produces great shots consistently. I have had no problem dialing it in and the interface is quite straightforward. Someone who enjoys espresso would love this machine. However, some things are a little finicky. If someone prefers a lot of milk beverages, that can be quite annoying in the morning with back-to-back drinks. The steam wand is powerful but fragile. It takes quite a bit of time to get up to the temperature for steaming (~2mins), especially since it's a single boiler. During my first two weeks, a little gasket-like thing broke off and was stuck inside the steam tip blocking steaming. It was an easy fix to unscrew the tip with an adjustable wrench and remove the gasket pieces. However, I would expect these little things will last more than 2 weeks. Another thing I don't enjoy is the water tank. I need to remove the cup warming tray to get to the water tank, and there are visual cues to see the water level. Though, the machine turns itself off if there's no water. I usually fill up the tank every morning. But one time I had friends over and was making a few drinks and the machine turned off mid-shot. Something to keep in mind. Other than these little annoyances, I'd recommend ECM Classika to someone enthusiastic about coffee and would prefer consistency in their drink.
I purchased the machine from Dipacci in Melb on Saturday. One of the most stress free purchases I have made. Greeted in the store with an espresso. Knowledgeable staff.Friendly. Great range of machines. This machine is perfect for me at home. It is powerful, and makes a great coffee (Barista skills notwithstanding) My only criticism of the machine is that the water tank is a little small and because of the water softener filter only uses about half capacity before requiring a top up.
Incredible grinder! Superior quality components, charming design and easy to use. So happy with this grinder, wish I purchased earlier.
