Just upgraded to a new ECM Technika IV after using a Valentina for 6 years. So far, very satisfied with this machine!
But I had a quick question for other Technika owners. After pulling a shot or backflushing there is a small drip from a button like protrusion just below and behind the grouphead water exit. It starts out at about one drop every 10 seconds and gradually slows over a few minutes to only an occasional drop.
Is this normal? Have other Technika owners noticed this? I'm assuming that it's normal since there is a hole in the bottom of it and another hole in the drip tray below it. Also, just curious as to what this is for since I've never seen this on other machines.
PS Have to give a shout out to Jim P at 1st-Line. The machine arrived on Friday, but unfortunately the rear and left-side panels were damaged in shipping. I emailed 1st-Line around 7 pm not expecting to hear anything until Monday, but within 10 minutes I had heard back from Jim saying that they will send out replacement panels. Great customer service!!
