Separate boilers for steam production and for espresso production. Not only can you perform both functions simultaneously but you have full control over the temperature of each boiler.
The manual flow control device on this version of the Profitec Pro 700 allows you to control the flow rate of your espresso extraction. Experimenting with flow rate lets one experiment with extracting espresso at variable flow rates, making it possible to both ramp up or ramp down pump water flow depending on the coffee type and flavors intended to be extracted.
The Profitec Dual Boiler features the extremely well known and widely used E61 group head. The E61 is known for its temperature stability, durability and ease of use.
The PID controller in the Profitec 700 is the most advanced in the industry. It controls both the steam and espresso boilers with separate set temperatures. It has a great steel blue colour that matches the machine beautifully and it has a feature not seen before in machines of this class; it acts as a shot timer. When you raise the lever to extract your coffee the PID turns into a timer which is a very neat and handy feature.
The PID also features:
ECO Mode: Automatic shut-off timer setup option from 0 minutes to 600 minutes. Stop worrying about shutting the machine off after making your last coffee.
CLN Mode: Automatic reminder of when to do the group cleaning. It can be set to start after 10* coffees.
FILL Mode: A safety mode that reminds users to fill the coffee boiler. This helps prevent starting the machine without water in the coffee boiler and damaging the heating element. Can also be set when the after servicing where the boiler has been drained for transportation.
The steam boiler can be shut off if you are only making espresso using a switch.
Quiet operation and robust performance. The Profitec can be run as a pour over machine using the included 3 litre water tank or it can be directly plumbed into your water main.
Both boilers in the Profitec 700 are made out of stainless steel and not copper. Steel is a more robust material and is not susceptible to oxidization or corrosion.
The machine is equipped with no burn steam and hot water wands that can be manipulated without worry about scolding your hands. Also, milk doesn't stick to a dual-walled steam wand as much as to a regular.
Level control cuts the power circuit if water is low, with a microprocessor that automatically controls the level of the water tank and boiler. A low water level warning will tell you when you need to refill. Please note: for proper operation it is a must to use water with mineral content.
A one liter drip tray is handy because it does not have to be emptied as often as some competing brands.
Boiler Drainage Valve
prevents water from freezing due to extreme temperatures during transport, and preventing damage to the boilers.
Powerful Steam Performance:
A High working temperature in the steam boiler - up to 132 C/ 270 F - helps achieve higher pressure and consequently higher steaming power.
A Profitec machine comes with two portafilters, a tamper, a blind basket, a brush, a cleaning cloth and a set of manuals.
