Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone has the depth measurements of the ECM Contravento from the back of the machine at its farthest point to the front of the front feet, if that makes sense!

I am basically trying to work out if I can fit one on my kitchen bench, if it is just a dream or if there is some kind of work around.

Thanks, Sue.

Measurements without portafilter is W 470 x D 640 x H 450
So the depth is 640mm so you need to add the portafilter length

Plus it’s a sexy looking machine

Thanks KK.

I am head over heels for it lol.

I have 600mm bench tops and I noticed the front feet are set back a bit  but I don't know if it is enough to enable me to be able to put it on the bench. A bit of overhang would be ok I think as long as the feet were firmly on the cupboard.

I think she is a gorgeous thing and have my heart set on it but just need to know I can fit her in.

Thanks again.

I think with the feet set inward - the machine will fit - but it will be prudent to call the distributor to confirm

However can you put up with overhang and if the machines position is in a high traffic area - will you be bumping into it ?

Ha, I was looking at it and was thinking if the feet were set inward I may just get away with it but wasn't sure if that was possible.

Machine is in a very low traffic area, it's at the other end of the kitchen and the only time anyone goes there is to use the bin or make a coffee.

Well in that case you must have it! Tell hubby I said so. Also we need a full review with pictures!

 :rofl:

It is a bit of a long term plan, perhaps 12 months or so. I think I will need all of that time to sort things out and of course to save a few $$.
I'm trying to do it without asking hubby for any $$$.

That time frame is to long for me  :stir

But at the $7700 AU listed price it’s understandable  :thumb:

One thing that concerns me is the stainless steel boiler
I’m sure someone in the industry can shed some light about known issues in other machines

Save some $ Sue.
It’s essentially an ECM Synchronika with a body kit. An expensive body kit. Also, these don’t run 2 bar like the Synchronika yet so it’s not even as good....
Food for thought.
