Profitec Drive Overview

The Profitec Drive is a reimagining of the German made Pro 700, Profitec’s top tier dual boiler espresso machine. Stock with an E61 flow control device and brimming with new functionality thanks to the updated PID controller, the Drive delivers precise control of brewing variables and simple upkeep and maintenance thanks to built-in reminders. Profitec also updated the housing to streamline the look of the machine while echoing design elements found their other machines.

Features and Benefits

Power and precision are guaranteed on the Drive thanks to its dual boilers and dual PID control. Users can independently set the temperatures of the 0.75L brew boiler and the 2.0L steam boiler while the high capacity ensures excellent thermal stability and steam power. At the max steam temperature of 270F the Drive reaches an explosive 2 bar of steam pressure. For brewing the Drive is equipped with a whisper quiet rotary pump and comes stock with Profitec’s E61 flow control device for variable flow rate brewing between 2.5-28.5g/sec.

Inside the PID controller the Drive has a trove of brewing and quality of life features waiting to be discovered. The basics like brew and steam temperature control are there, along with the ability to switch off the steam boiler when not in use. Even more impressive is the programmable pre-infusion feature which can be enabled to run the pump between 1 - 10 seconds followed by a pause of 1 - 60 seconds before brewing. For simple maintenance and quality of life the PID is also equipped with a backflush reminder, water filter reminder, eco mode, and two programmable wake up times for each day of the week. Thanks to its rotary pump the Drive can be connected directly to a water line or run from its 2.8L water reservoir.

The Drive's Fast Heat Up gives the option for a unique heating cycle that overheats the boiler so that it reaches brew temperatures even faster. After a cooling flush, the super-hot water brings the group head and portafilter to proper brewing temperature which helps to achieve optimal temperature stability. 

From the outside the Drive has inherited a number of design elements that have become staples within the Profitec lookbook. The updated quick steam valves and Twist and Change portafilter handles allow for simple customization with a wide variety of accents and materials. Ever present is the iconic “P” cutout on the drip tray along with black gauges for brew and steam pressure. In a nod to the Pro 400, the Drive echoes its black frame beneath the drip tray and cutout “Profitec” logo on the back panel.

Why You Should Get It

If you’re looking for a high performing dual boiler espresso machine the Profitec Drive makes a great case for itself as the last stop on your upgrade journey. With precise brewing and powerful steam it nails the fundamentals while its programmable pre-infusion and flow control elevate the potential of your espresso. Thanks to the updated PID the Drive keeps a watchful eye on maintenance and is ready to go in the morning when it’s time for that essential first cup.

  • Dual Stainless Steel Boilers

    With two stainless steel boilers, the Drive offers the best in both precision temperature and steaming power. At 0.75L the brew boiler heats quickly but possesses enough thermal mass to maintain stable temperatures even when pulling back to back shots. For steaming and hot water dispensing the 2L steam boiler has ample capacity for frequent milk frothing and for Americanos and tea.

  • Updated PID Display

    The PID now displays both brew and steam temperature simultaneously and features a button shortcut to quickly enable and disable the preinfusion function. The display is programmed with a suite of quality of life features like automatic waking up and powering down at two unique times per day along with reminders to backflush and change your water filter. Additional features like programmable pre-infusion and an eco mode make the Drive Profitec’s most advanced machine yet.

  • Fast Heat Up

    The Drive feature's Profitec's Fast Heat Up programming, a unique heating cycle. When powering on, if the temperature in the boiler is 104° F or lower, the boiler will begin heating to 266°F and the PID will display "UP." A "FLU" message will display when it's time to flush. On E61 machines like the Drive, the flush takes roughly 20 seconds and will have the boiler, group, and portafilter at brew ready temperature in 11 minutes.

  • Flow Control

    One of the most impactful features introduced on home espresso machines in recent years, flow control allows you to manually adjust the flow rate of water as it is introduced to your coffee. With flow control, unique extraction profiles like extended pre-infusion or high flow extractions that are more similar to lever espresso machines.
