Profitec Pro 700 Dual Boiler Espresso Machine
As low as $2,599.00 Regular Price $2,799.00
This machine is awesome. It is night and day compared to what I had before. I paired it with a Quamar M80E and could not be happier. It pulls shot after shot with no problems and the steam power is incredible. This machine does a much better job at highlighting the coffee flavors and with the built in shot timer it makes it super easy to dial in your shots. The dual PIDs help monitor temperature and help keep the shots consistent.
The Profitec Pro 700 Dual Boiler Espresso Machine is a truly exceptional home use espresso machine. The Pro 700 is the realization of Profitec's dream of creating a machine that provides baristas with a singular espresso experience. A marriage of German engineering and Italian tradition, the machine impresses not only with its quality components and construction, but also with nuanced features that ensure ease of use, longevity and the brewing of excellent espresso. We can say without hesitation that the Pro 700 is among the most capable home machines we've carried.
Externally, the machine is housed in beautiful mirror-finish stainless steel panels with smoothed edges. The housing rests on a one-piece internal steel frame that extends from the back of the machine through to the drip tray. As opposed to welding the tray to the front of the machine, making it part of the frame protects it from bending or bowing during shipping or as the result of continuous use. The top of the machine provides a spacious cup warming surface and can be removed for easy access the water reservoir.
As a dual boiler machine, there is both a 0.75 liter boiler dedicated exclusively to brewing and a 2 liter boiler dedicated to steaming. Both boilers are made of stainless steel and wrapped with thermal insulation. The boilers have been bolted to the frame of the machine for structural stability but are easily removable, an element of the highly modular internal design that allows for easy servicing and repair. Brew pressure is provided by the powerful RPM motor and rotary pump which cuts down on the noise produced by the brewing process and allows you to connect the the machine directly to a water line or use the 3 liter water reservoir. The last facet of the brewing process, the E61 brew group is made of solid chrome plated brass and is constantly heated by a thermosyphon system to ensure maximum temperature stability.
A benefit of having two boilers, brewing and steaming can be performed simultaneously. The Pro 700 has an insulated steam wand, with a four-hole steam tip. The hot water wand is similarly insulated to help prevent accidental burns. By keeping the surface of the cooler, the insulation also helps to prevent milk from getting burned onto the wand, making it easier to maintain. A unique aspect of steaming and dispensing hot water with this machine are the spring loaded valves. The benefit of these valves is that 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. In turn this reduces wear and tear because you no longer risk over tightening the valves to seal them. When you’re finished brewing, the manual three way valve which is controlled by the brewing lever drains any excess pressure and water directly into the 1 liter drip tray, keeping the internal components dry.
A unique and desirable feature of the Pro 700 is its front mounted dual boiler PID display that monitors both the brew and steam boiler temperatures and allows you to adjust both, a beneficial feature that allows you to achieve more precise brewing conditions to extract certain notes and flavors from different coffees. An additional function boasted by the Pro 700’s PID is its built-in shot timer that switches on when you begin brewing. The timer is accurate up to the second. In addition to the PID, the front of the machine also sports dual pressure gauges that monitor both pump and boiler pressure.
Ultimately, the sum of the features and components listed above is an espresso machine designed to embody Profitec’s passion and knowledge for brewing great espresso.
The following accessories are included with each Profitec Pro 700:

Dimensions: 18.7” D x 13.4” W x 16.5” H
Dual PID Temperature Controller and Shot Timer
The Pro 700 sports an integrated dual PID that monitors the temperatures of both the brew and steam boilers for maximum precision. The PID also doubles as a shot timer with up to the second accuracy.
E61 Brew Group and Thermosyphon System
Renowned for its contributions to maintaining temperature stability in professional grade espresso machines, the E61 is constantly heated with water from the thermosyphon system. The solid brass E61 also features a pre-infusion cylinder to wet your grounds with low pressure water prior to brewing to aid in the extraction process.
Dual Boiler Brewing
Having two boilers means that you can brew and steam at the same time. It also helps to ensure temperature stability as each boiler is heated separately and monitored by its own PID.
The powerful rotary pump runs much more quietly than vibration pumps and allows the Pro 700 to be plumbed directly into water lines. The machine boasts an impressive 3 liter water reservoir fitted with a low volume sensor that automatically shuts the machine off to prevent the boiler from running dry.
Dual Pressure Gauges
Internal pump and boiler pressures are displayed on the front of the machine by the Pro 700’s dual gauges, allowing you to keep an eye on things.
Spring Loaded Steam and Water Valves
The steam and hot water valves are both spring loaded, preventing you from having to rotate the knobs numerous times to open or close them, which in turn reduces wear and tear.
Insulated Steam and Hot Water Wands
To help prevent accidental burns, both the steam and hot water wands have been insulated to keep them from getting too hot too quickly.
