Overview

What is it?

The Profitec Pro 800 is a lever espresso machine with a hefty 17lb brew group, a massive 3.5-liter steam boiler, and a vibratory pump. It can be either direct plumbed or run on its internal 3-liter reservoir.

Who is it for?

The brew group is for the espresso traditionalist who wants to be able to pull smooth, rich shots the likes of which an electric pump will never achieve. This machine is built for someone who is excited to scale the steep learning curve of this classic espresso machine design.

Why do we carry it?

The Profitec Pro 800 is by far the best built and most satisfying lever machine we've used, which is why it is the only one in our lineup. There's just something magical about pulling down the lever, getting a true soft-preinfusion, and lifting the lever at just the right moment for the perfect shot. Hearing the silent patter of espresso drops on porcelain never gets old, and neither do the smooth shots this lever machine produces.

Direct plumbing means you can hook a machine directly a water line and never have to worry about refilling your reservoir again. These machines also allow you to connect the drip tray to a drain so you don't have to make that tightrope walk to the sink.

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.

Reservoir

Reservoir

The reservoir is the water tank an espresso machine pulls water from to fill its boilers. Having a reservoir means a machine can be more portable and work in homes where plumbing isn't an option.

Single Boiler

If you’re and espresso purist who likes the occasional cappuccino on the weekend a single boiler is the machine for you. Single boilers take less time to heat than their larger dual boiler and heat exchanger relatives. They also have smaller footprints and offer a more espresso focused experience.

Vibratory Pump

Vibratory pumps are the most common design in compact espresso machines because they’re durable, compact and economical. Although they’re a bit louder than rotary pumps when adjusted to proper 9 bar brew pressure vibratory pumps offer comparable espresso quality.
