One-Piece Frame and Stainless Steel Housing Built on a solid foundation, the Pro 500 has a one-piece steel frame and is housed entirely in mirror finished stainless steel.
E61 Brew Group and Thermosyphon System Renowned for its contributions to maintaining temperature stability in professional grade espresso machines, the E61 group head rests like a crown on the Pro 500. 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.
Monitored Water Reservoir The Pro 500 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 500’s dual gauges, allowing you to keep an eye on things.
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. The hot water wand can dispense water for tea, cocoa, Americanos, and more. PLEASE NOTE: These machines come fitted with EU plugs to which we fit 'wraparound' UK adaptors. Also note, we are unable to ship Profitec machines directly to Australia or New Zealand by request of the Manufacturer.

The Pro 500 is a prosumer grade semi-automatic espresso machine designed by Profitec to be both functional and user friendly. As part of their endeavor to bridge the gap between professional technology and engineering, 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 and sporting two front mounted pressure gauges for both the boiler and the pump, 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. On top is a large, passively heated cup warmer that you can remove to access the water reservoir. Lastly, Profitec has insulated the hot water and steam wands have also been similarly insulated to prevent accidental burns.

Brewing is handled in combination by the by the Pro 500’s 1400W 2L stainless steel boiler and the aforementioned Ulka EX5 vibration pump and E61 group head. 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. The thermosyphon also ensures that you will always be brewing with fresh water, pulled from the reservoir instead of the boiler. Having an E61 brew group is advantageous in that it not only lends itself tremendously to maintaining temperature stability but also allows for pre-infusion of the grounds. This is all made possible by the built-in pre-infusion cylinder which allows water to be directed into the portafilter at subdued pressure, wetting the grounds prior to reaching full pressure.

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.

  1. Scott Tomkinson asks about Profitec 500 Espresso Machine with PID 23 Oct 2019

    Will you be able to source the flow control valve for these units in the future?

    1. David Lombari answers 23 Oct 2019

      Hi Scott.

      The Profitec flow valve we stock will fit the Pro 500.

      Please let me know if you're looking to retrofit or if you would like it fitted to a machine you're looking to purchase through us.

      Regards,
      David
