I noticed today that ECM is touting their Puristika single boiler espresso machine on social media. It says "coming soon", yet I see a video from 2019 showing this machine at some European show.

Why is it being highlighted now?

Covid......it was meant to be launched during 2020. I actually have a prototype (one of the 3 made for Host 2019, which I was testing at the beginning of 2020....gave ECM some feedback. It's a nice little machine. The prototype uses a different tank and the finish is not as good as a production machine will be. You can see it compared to a more normal sized prosumer machine.

Love the look of this machine. If I didn't already have a Carola I'd snatch one up. Funny enough I've converted my Carla to an external 1 gallon tank, and now keep all my baskets and other little accessories in the internal tank.

to me this machine doesn't make sense without a flow control paddle. Someone looking for a specialized purely espresso machine would likely want and benefit greatly from having a FC paddle, especially on lighter roasts.

I do love the design and small form factor.

As ECM offers a flow-control kit, providing a lower price for purchase potentially opens a broader market without eliminating those that desire a paddle.

Probably more old school guys who just want their simple shot of espresso with no frills.
