The Controvento with dual boiler and PID temperature regulation!
The Controvento is the first dual boiler espresso machine from ECM Manufacture in Germany. With its new, extravagant design, it veers away from the classic look and races "against the wind," as the name implies. The Controvento makes a statement like no other!
The temperature of the coffee boiler and the steam boiler can be regulated separately via the PID display - this way, each coffee lover can find their own perfect temperature. Because of the quiet but strong rotary pump, the Controvento is a good fit in an office or espresso bar.
