Need to Know

What is it?

The Profitec Drive is a dual-boiler espresso machine with an E61 group head, a silent rotary pump, and a built-in PID and shot timer that can be either directly plumbed or run on its internal reservoir. The Drive features a Profitec flow control device, allowing you to make espresso your way and experiment with different flavor profiles. 
 

New with the Profitec Drive

  • Flow control comes standard with the Drive. The red manometer makes the front of the machine pop. 
  • The compact black OLED PID display is integrated into the unit's front panel. It comes with new and familiar modes, such as a shot timer, programmable pre-infusion, pre-infusion pause duration, brew and steam temperature adjustments, ECO mode, cleaning and filter change reminders, and the ability to turn off the steam boiler. 
  • Fast Heat-Up Mode—the Drive is ready to pull shots within 12-13 minutes from a cold start. 
  • Set your Drive to an on/off schedule. The PID allows you to create an on/off schedule for the week so that the machine is ready to pull shots before you even wake up.
  • Aesthetically, the Drive’s frame is in the field of view with a sleek black frame and black cup railing. The steam and hot water assemblies are outfitted with quick steam joysticks, making steaming fast and intuitive. 

Who is it for?

The Drive is for the home barista who wants to perfect their espresso technique, who likes experimenting, and for those who need versatility and enough steam power for the rest of the family. The Drive can really do it all. This machine balances a perfect feature set with a premium build quality and no-nonsense design. 

Why do we carry it?

Profitec has proven its dedication to making incredible home machines that are beautiful, reliable, and easy to use. The Drive is no exception. With timeless styling and features that suit espresso purists and latte drinkers alike, you can't go wrong with this dual boiler, and you'll enjoy every shot you pull with its built-in shot timer and silent operation. Profitec also rises to the occasion, adding convenience features like the on/off scheduler, programable pre-infusion, and flow control as a new standard. With 2 bars of steam pressure, this makes for commercial speed and quality, even when steaming large quantities of milk.
