Comparing the ECM Barista to the ECM Technika Profi:
* does not have quick steam/water valves
* has a simpler body (eg cup warmer tray comes off to expose water tank rather than having a flip open lid for the water tank)
* standard E61 group head rather than modified ECM E61 group head
* standard portafilters (rather than chrome handled portafilters)
* does not have user accessible OPV for simple brew pressure adjustment.
Other than that, they are the same.
