    Giotto STOP PRESS!!! Good news!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Contrary to rumours which have been spread by a rather large player in the industry, production of the ECM Giotto has commenced.

    Air freighted stock is arriving in Australia tomorrow- and we will receive limited stocks around the end of the week.....

    Once we fill back orders, there will be a few left. Get in quick if you want one- they will sell rapidly....and they did...All Giottos are now sold * :(

    For those contemplating a new Giotto from this batch, all machines will ship standard with our exclusive thermostability upgrade which is normally $200. We will also discount all grinders by 10% when combined with a Giotto .

    Once we fill our backorders, there will be a few units remaining...Its a good idea to get in now if you were planning for the big fella to bring you a Giotto... This will be the last shipment prior to the new year. ;)

    Hey Chris,

    Congrats!

    Could you end the speculation by letting us know why there has been such a delay? I mean, something has to have happened if ECM Australia started up ECA to sell Vibiemme, right?

    Cheers,

    Luca

    Hi Luca,

    Im sure you already know that ECM Italy experienced difficulties after a relocation and expansion of facilities last year.

    A slow down in production has been experienced while Italy worked through those issues and we have been informed supply will continue to be tight until the new year when things should improve.

    A number of individuals, including representatives of a large coffee company have spread rumours about ECM Italy, quite possibly for their own benefit. Unfortunately politics seems to play a large role in the coffee business and Im happy that I dont have to get involved.

    As a company, Espresso Company Australia (ECA), is the umbrella company that markets and maintains the accumulated brands, with ECM being a represented brand. The ECA business plan model includes a range of equipment including ECM, Vibiemme and a range of new grinders. Monte coffee did exactly the same thing as it didnt make sense for Monte to sell a number of other brands- bg&d for example.

    There are many exciting new products and developments planned for ECA and I know we will be informed in due course....

    Hopefully that all makes sense and hopefully those who enjoy spreading rumours might :-X for a while now ;)

    Chris

    Cool, thanks for that, Chris.

    This is the first that I have heard of ECM relocating their factory, which is surprising because I would have thought that that message would have been spread all over the place in order to quell any speculation. As it was, the most likely thing that I had heard was that the owners of ECM were disputing who owned the trademark and production had stopped whilst that was happening.

    Cheers,

    Luca
