The Casa V from ECM is the premier semi-automatic machine, and we’re happy to say it’s best-in-class under $1000. German design and Italian craft reflect in the clean, exquisite construction expected from ECM, inside and out.

Owning the ECM Casa V

For a single-boiler espresso machine, and one of the smallest products in the ECM line, the ECM Casa V manages to be one of the best semi-automatic machines you can get for under $1000. You’ll find that many typically prosumer-exclusive features are borrowed in the Casa V.  For instance, the brew pressure gauge, which lets you keep an eye on pressure while you brew and gives you a sense as to the quality of your shot. To this end, ECM has made sure that the overpressure valve is easily accessible for pump pressure adjustment, hiding it beneath the cup tray.

The 1200 watt heating element goes to work on the 0.4 liter brass boiler, heating the Casa V to brewing temperature in 5-7 minutes, or steam temperature in one minute.Justkeep in mind that you can brew shot after shot but won’t be hosting any big parties with a lot of milk based drinks. However, a home of one or two people will be very happy with it’s performance. This is especially so, considering  the articulating commercial style steam wand, packing a considerable amount of steam power and equipped with a two-hole steam tip for velvety milk foam.
