ECM V-Titan 64 Espresso Grinder
The ECM V-Titan 64 is a powerhouse prosumer/light commercial-level grinder with 1950’s styling and a commercial-grade heart. At the core of the V-Titan are two flat, titanium-coated 64mm burrs, from which it gets its name.
Features and Performance
When asked, ECM stated these burrs could withstand 1200 kg of coffee before needing replacement. In effect, this translates to burrs that can withstand a staggering 100 years worth of use and still remain sharp. Grinding is controlled by the silver-finished display at the bottom of the machine which features two pre-set grinding times, adjustable to within a tenth of a second. The powerful 450 watt motor lets the V-Titan 64 grind 11 grams of coffee in just about 2.5 seconds, matching or even exceeding most grinders in its price range.
Grind-setting drift has always been a source of frustration for us here at the office, and the ECM V-Titan 64 eliminates this with the critical addition of the worm gear. This adjustment allows you to finely tune your grind setting and lock it in place, ensuring that the grind size is always what you set it to be.
Because the worm-gear's adjustments are so fine, this makes the V-Titan something of an espresso specialist. You'll want to keep that in mind if you expect to grind for a range of brew methods, as large adjustments to grind size will take some time and effort. If you plan on sticking to an espresso grind-size, however, the V-Titan will perform very well.
Why You Should Get It
Gorgeous looks aside, the V-Titan 64 is a powerhouse espresso grinder with precision adjustment and burrs that will probably stay sharp for the rest of your life. It grinds coffee quickly, and you won't need to worry about your settings drifting because of the worm-gear adjustment. If you're looking for a new grinder to pair with your high-end prosumer espresso machine, the ECM V-Titan 64 offers an excellent if not perfect match.
Very glad I bought this grinder. It gives amazingly consistent grinds and accurate amounts. I recommend it.
This one got high marks and I can see why. The timing method is perfect for me … put in the beans, push the button and do something else while the beans are grinding. You have the ability to adjust the grind coarseness to an incredible range and likewise the time that you want to grind beans can be adjusted to the tenth of a second. Overall, this grinder is superb in all aspects.
I love this machine. I use it every day and it grinds my beans exactly the way I want it. I am giving it 5 stars.
To date, it has been very reliable. In fact, I am supremely impressed by this grinder, not only in quality but functionality. My last grinder and espresso machines were both Italian (by well known companies) and had far less adjustability, functionality, and reliability.
Had this about a month and so far, very happy with it. I get perfectly consistent shots from this if I don't mess with the steps/setting.
