Profitec Pro 500 PID with Flow Control Overview

Now Shipping With a Double Spout and Bottomless Portafilter

The Profitec Pro 500 PID with Flow Control follows in the footsteps of other machines from Profitec with tremendous performance and distinguished build quality without compromising on simplicity. The Pro 500 PID with Flow Control boasts commercial-grade parts and professional aesthetics while still managing to be easy-to-use. The updated version of the Pro 500 PID with Flow Control offers a level of performance we’ve seen in much more expensive machines and introduces a now visible PID and shot timer and striking new black pressure gauges.

Features and Performance

With the Pro 500 PID with Flow Control, you'll get a heat exchanger machine that brews with a 2L stainless steel boiler and a powerful 1400W heating element, both of which are complemented by the iconic E61 brew group. For the second upgrade to the Profitec Pro 500 PID, Profitec implemented a flow control valve that the previous model did not have, helping this machine take a huge step forward.

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 espresso machine. When set to a temperature of 256° Fahrenheit, pressure stabilizes for near indefinite steaming while eliminating the necessity of a cooling flush under most circumstances.

With the 2022 update of the Pro 500 with Flow Control, Profitec has moved the PID temperature display to make it easier to view. Before, the display was hidden behind the drip tray, but now it’s on the face of the machine. This will help you make sure your espresso machine is set at the correct temperature so you can brew with all of the exact settings that you want. In addition, the PID display now doubles as a shot timer and allows you to easily change other settings such as the programmable eco mode and backflush reminders.

Why You Should Get It

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 relocated PID display really shines, making it easier than ever to keep an eye on the impressive temperature stability from the PID temperature controller on this heat exchanger espresso machine.

  • Heat Exchanger

    The Pro 500 PID with Flow Control is equipped with a 1400 W stainless steel boiler with a capacity of 2 L. As a heat exchanger machine, you can brew and steam back to back without waiting or even brew at the same time.

  • PID Controller + Shot timer

    Control boiler temperature to get the best flavor out of whatever kind of coffee you’re brewing with. The PID also has temperature stability and accuracy that pressure stats can only dream of. With the 2022 update, you can now easily view the current temperature settings or adjust them to fit the coffee you’re using as well as your taste preferences.

  • E61 Brew Group

    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.

    gridimage-3
  • Flow Control Knob

    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.
