Hello Gazza and welcome,
Many potential purchasers think that ECM (Germany) is the same ECM which once manufactured the ECM Giotto.
These are two different companies with ECM Italy now under the ownership of Rocket Espresso which still manufactures the Giotto and other great machines.
ECM Germany product is sold by site sponsor Jetblack espresso and perhaps other sponsors as well.
Drop Charlie and Deb a line if youre interested in this machine. I am sure they will be delighted to look after you.
Hope that helps ;)
