Many of us first heard Profitec’s name when the Pro 700 was launched in 2014, and it was met with immediate excitement due to its connection with sister company ECM Germany, its unique cleanliness of engineering, and its stainless steel dual boilers. ECM has built a phenomenal reputation for crafting some of the finest prosumer espresso machines in the world, and it was announced that the sister company Profitec would focus on dual boiler machines.
Aesthetically, The Profitec Pro 700 tends towards a rational, minimalist form that is ideal for the modern, refined kitchen or office, but will also blend in with more traditional kitchens. If you appreciate a clean aesthetic, where less is more, this machine is for you.
We’ve been importing the Pro 700 for years, and it fills a very unique role in our product lineup. This machine typically isn’t sold by it’s mirror polished body, it’s timeless e61 group head or its whisper quiet rotary pump. What draws many people to this machine is the order of its internals, the ease of accessing internal parts, and its large temperature controlled stainless steel boilers. People love having a built-in shot timer, a bottom feeding 3 liter reservoir and massive clearance under the group head, but it’s the attention to detail inspires confidence.
The ECM Synchronika actually shares the Pro 700’s internals. That means same .75 liter brew boiler and 2 liter steam boiler, which means identical performance. At 16.5” tall it should also fit under most cabinets (15.25″ tall with the cup rail removed). This machine only draws 1400 watts, so it works on any kitchen outlet. A simple appliance timer will have the machine ready to brew whenever you want, so no need to worry about warmup time.
Being able to adjust the brew temperature allows fine tuning of espresso flavors (reducing bitter and sour flavors), and being able to adjust the steam boiler temperature can lower the maximum pressure of the steam boiler to ease the learning curve. Oh, and those steam and hot water valves are the insulated “no burn” style. Dual gauges display steam boiler pressure and brew pressure. The steam boiler is easily turned off with a switch, and the commercial rotary pump allows easy plumb-ability with one of our softening and filtration systems. The e61 group head provides mechanical preinfusion every time you flip the brew lever up, meaning the grounds are soaked before the brew pressure ramps up. When the machine is plumbed, preinfusion can be extended to your heart’s content due to having line pressure.
The reason for the Pro 700’s cost savings over the Synchronika is because of features like the traditional steam valves, as well as simpler aesthetics on portafilter handles and gauges. While we absolutely love both machines, this gives the Pro 700 unique value in our lineup. It offers excellent espresso performance, big steam power, and straightforward serviceability. These are some of the reasons why the Pro 700 continues to be one of our most satisfying dual boilers for homes and small businesses.

Dedicated temperature controlled boilers for brewing and steaming means both functions can happen simultaneously, with the additional advantage of fine tunability. Sour and bitter espresso flavors can be minimized by raising or lowering brew temperature, resulting in a smoother shot. Adjusting the temperature of the steam boiler can increase or decrease the amount of steam power to suit different drink size milk drinks.
The rotary vane pump offers whisper quiet performance just like your favorite cafe’s machine. This super robust design also allows plumb-ability.
PID Temperature Control
PIDs allow the most precise temperature adjustment and control of boilers by continuously calculating the amount of power needed to maintain the target temperature. They also allow more detailed information to be displayed to the user than digital temperature controlled systems.
Shot timers measure the brew time from the time the pump is activated. This information is extremely helpful for dialing in an espresso grinder to the ideal 25 second 1.5oz shot, and maintaining consistency.
Switchable Water Source
A switchable machine is not limited to either a water reservoir or plumbing. Large water reservoirs are always available for portability, but the plumbing line is also included and switching the water source between them is a breeze.
