Profitec Pro 500 PID Espresso Machine with Flow Control
The Profitec Pro 500 PID with Flow Control is a highly capable heat exchanger espresso machine, packed with commercial parts, a quiet vibration pump, and equipped to compete with more expensive machines.
Profitec is a brand about tremendous performance and distinguished build quality, without compromising on simplicity. These machines boast powerful commercial-grade parts, professional aesthetics, and still manage to be easy-to-use. The Pro 500 PID Flow Control follows suit, packing a level of performance we’ve seen in much more expensive machines into a model that can still fit under our cabinets.
With the Pro 500 PID with Flow Control, you’ll get a machine that brews with a 2L stainless steel boiler and powerful 1400W heating element, complemented by the iconic E61 brew group. For the second upgrade to the Profitec Pro 500 PID, Profitec implemented a flow control valve which the previous model did not have, making this a huge step forward for the machine.
This allows you to control the flow of water during extraction to get different flavors out of your coffee, really giving you the chance to appreciate the nuances of your favorite beans. By simply adjusting the knob, you have control over a longer or shorter pre-infusion and can modify the extraction parameters of your shot. It’s a simple change, but the effect can be profound.
In combination with the engineered thermosyphon system in the E61 group, the Pro 500 PID with Flow Control lends a level of temperature stability previously unheard of in a heat exchanger espresso machine. The need for cooling flushes is eliminated, removing a considerable limitation from this class of machine.
All in all, the Pro 500 PID with Flow Control sets itself apart as a superior machine with the commercial edge necessary to measure up against machines with a much greater asking price.
The Pro 500 PID Flow Control is equipped with a 1400 W stainless steel boiler with a capacity of 2 L. As a heat exchanger machine, you can expect to brew and steam without waiting, or even at the same time.
Control boiler temperature for searching out those elusive coffee flavors and get the best out of your coffee. The PID also eliminates the need for a pressure stat, increasing reliability.
The E61 grouphead is constantly heated with water from the thermosyphon system for temperature stability. It also features a pre-infusion cylinder to aid in the extraction process.
The Flow Control Knob allows you to have greater control over your extraction and get maximum flavor out of your coffee. By simply having a longer or shorter pre-infusion, you can tailor your brewing experience to your preference.
