Profitec Pro 500 Espresso Machine

The Pro 500 is a prosumer grade semi-automatic espresso machine designed by Profitec to be both functional and user friendly. The Pro 500 includes numerous high quality components such as the much renowned E61 brew group, the copper and braided steel water tubing or the Ulka EX5 vibration pump.
Wrapped in attractive and durable stainless steel housing, the Pro 500 aims to impress with both form and function. Internally, everything rests on the one-piece steel frame that runs from the back of the machine all the way to the drip tray. Profitec has insulated the hot water and steam wands have also been similarly insulated to prevent accidental burns.
The E61 is made of solid brass and constantly heated by the heat exchanger and thermosyphon system which constantly circulate hot water through the group head.
Steaming is accomplished by the Pro 500’s insulated two-hole steam wand and can be executed in tandem thanks to the heat exchanger system. Another feature of note are the spring loaded steam and hot water valves. These valves are unique because they don’t need to be fully opened or closed to regulate the flow of steam/water. The way it works is that by turning the knobs, pressure is either added to or released from a spring that holds the valves shut, this prevents you from having to rotate the knobs numerous times to open or close the valves.
To help prevent damage to the machine, the water reservoir is fitted with a low volume sensor that automatically shuts of the boiler to keep it from running dry. The Pro 500 will alert you of low water volume with the orange light located directly below the power switch. At the end of the day, Profitec’s main goal has been to provide the home barista with a singular espresso machine experience, a goal handily by the Pro 500 espresso machine.
