Who are Profitec?
Profitec are a division of ECM based in Hieldelberg, Germany, offering high grade German engineering at a very high standard. We consider them to be the future go to brand for 2023.
What is the Profitec PRO 500?
The PRO 510 is a classic E61 pro-sumer espresso machine, designed for those wanting to achieve cafe quality coffee in the home or office. It's Profitec's second HX (Heat Exchanger) machine in their range (The lowest priced HX we offer). It's equipped with a PID for super accurate temperature control (No presets here!), a very quiet vibration pump and some slick features like ECO mode and low water notification.
This version of the PRO500 comes with joystick valves, so turning on either water or steam can be activated any way 360 degrees, with an option to click hold the steam. *Please note: We also offer a 'Rotary Valve' version HERE.
The PRO 500 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.
How does it compare with the Profitec PRO400 or Rocket Cronometro?
The PRO 510 sits above the first HX in their range (The PRO 400), as it offers a full PID, delivering precise temperature control, while the PRO 400 has only 3 pre-defined settings for changing temperature. Further, it's larger boiler delivers superior steam pressure, making it easy to prepare great milk based drinks.
The PRO 500 also challenges the Rocket Cronometro V (Priced at £1550). It's cheaper, includes a quieter pump, and in our opinion a overall superior machine. From testing, we have found that the PRO 500 experiences not only less noise, but also less vibration, making it a quieter and slicker machine to use.
Who is it suited to?
The Profitec PRO 510 is geared towards people wanting to drink amazing quality coffee in the home or office. The PRO 500 stands out for us, as it offers excellent balance between two key areas:
1. Precision over temperature (Via it's PID) for those looking for serious control over their coffee preparation. So no presets and full control.
- So it's a great option for the coffee aficionados out there.
2. Amazing steam pressure, due to it's large and very powerful boiler size and design, giving you a machine that can deliver milk based drinks that rivals some commercial machines.
- So great for those wanting to make a few drinks at a time without waiting, so great for flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos.
What is the build quality like?
The PRO 510 is a serious piece of German engineering. It weighs around 23KG, 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.
