      Who are Profitec?

      Profitec are a division of ECM based in Germany. ECM were part of the original company that became what is now known as Rocket Espresso Milano. Profitec are, by all accounts, on the same level as Rocket as a premium producer of high grade pro-sumer espresso machines, focusing on the iconic E61 group-head, which offers superb temperature stability. Their machines are designed in Germany and produced in Italy.

      We rarely (if ever) add a new brand to our fold, so it takes something pretty special for us to consider it. After much testing and product analysis, we are sure that adding this machine is providing you (a UK coffee customer) with an option that is currently not available from Rocket.

      What is the Profitec PRO 600?

      The PRO 600 is Profitec's first dual boiler domestic machine in their range, geared for use in the home or office, to produce artisan quality coffee. It's a classic E61 espresso machine, constructed from steel and finished in chrome.  It comes with separate / dedicated boilers for brew & hot water / steam, shot timer, PID for precision temperature control over both boilers and dual water connections.

      What is so special about it?

      Dual boiler espresso machines are typically quite expensive, due to the range of features that they tend to offer.  These are dual boilers, PID, rotary pump and dual water connection options (reservoir and mains connect). Together, these features really jump the price up to the level of a Rocket R58 (£2450).

      What we have found from speaking with and advising customers over the last 9 years, is that many people looking for a dual boiler don't actually need two of these features.  These are, 1) a rotary pump, as at a domestic level, the vibration pump is not very loud and more than adequate, plus 2) dual water connect, as most people tend to just use the machine on reservoir only.

      The Profitec PRO 600 comes without these two features, and as a result, the price is £750 less than a Rocket R58, which is a huge amount of money, especially for someone using a machine in the home.

      In short: Two features have been removed which are rarely ever used, and the machine is £750 less than the Rocket equivalent.

      Who is it suited to?

      The Profitec PRO 600 is geared towards people wanting to drink amazing quality coffee in the home or office, but with precision control over temperature during the brewing process. If you are interested in playing around with the types of coffee you use (roasts styles or origins), or the way you brew it (varying temperature), then the PRO 600 if the machine for you.

      It's not uncommon for people to upgrade from HX machines to dual boilers once they become more into the quality or precision control of their coffee. That said, more people are going straight for the PRO 600 as their first machine with the view of just going for the best first time around, with the view of avoiding future upgrades.

      What is the build quality like?

      Similar to a Rocket, the PRO 600 is built like a tank, but with the look and feel of a Mercedes. It weighs around 30KG, so it's reassuringly heavy. The unit is housed around a solid stainless steel chassis, so it's very stable. The attention to detail is exceptional, with excellent finish both inside and outside the machine. It has beautiful clean lines across it's production, which give it a luxury feel.

      What's so good about it?

      The Profitec PRO 600 has separate insulated brass boilers for both brewing and steam. These enable simultaneous brewing of espresso and steaming of milk with ultimate temperature control and stability. The fully programmable PID (electronic temperature control), uses sensors inside the boilers to deliver precise temperatures, ensuring stability to within 1°C. This feature allows for precise adjustments to suit specific types of coffee, so total variable control to suit your needs and tastes.

      It contains a domestic grade vibration, separate boiler and pump pressure gauges, a cool touch technology (anti-burn) stainless steel steam wand, separate hot water tap, a large stainless steel drip tray and a large cup warmer.

      For those wishing to adjust the brew pressure, you can do so by removing the drip try and access the adjustment valve in the space behind the drip tray.

      Both the steam and hot water arms are tool to touch design, meaning you will not burn yourself, even if you touch the piping on either.

      The PRO 600 may be classed as a domestic machine, but it is considerably powerful, capable of producing excellent espresso and perfect micro-foam for flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos at a level that is normally only seen in commercial equipment.
