  1. As the title says, I think I've decided on a Profitec Pro 700. Nowhere seems to have them in stock at the moment as they've just released an updated model, but I'll be buying from Bella Barista when they have them (should be this week or next). Just wondered if anyone here had seen the new model at a store or at an expo or anything; is there anything I should know before I order? Or anything I need to know about the old model, even. It's a big chunk of money to drop and I'd like to hear people's thoughts before I hand it over. Also it's inevitable that people will tell me to spend m
  2. Dear experts.. After weeks of reviewing online and one discussion on the phone with the Bella Barista team (subject to a visit soon to finalise).. I am getting closer to a Pro 600 as my choice.. The suggestion from BB was a ECM Mechanika Slim for my budget and bias towards milk based drinks.. I seem to be struggling to find the logic in a Hx machine - especially one that is not plumbed-in (which is likely what I will do). All the cooling flushes (guess work), then filling and emptying tanks and trays because of the 'design' of the machine does seem odd.. Perhaps this is perfectly acceptable -
  3. PART 1 As my search for a new espresso machine draws to a conclusion, the purpose of this thread is to report some of my findings, dispel a few myths and provide a some advice for other members to choose a new machine. I apologies in advance that it is a bit long-winded. I started making 'real' coffee a good few years ago with a pod coffee machine from Bosch. I enjoyed real coffee, and can't stand instant 'coffee'! I progressed from that to an Aeropress, and used this sucessfully for 18 months or more until I purchased my first real espresso machine in October last year, a Sage Du
  4. Having been tempted by the Lelit profile control device at £252 I was kindly pointed in the direction of Bella Barista who have started stocking the Profitec one at £179 plus £6 postage . It arrived within a couple of days . It arrives in two pieces the flow control unit and a pressure gauge for the group . There are no instructions and no washers for the gauge are included . However fitting is a doddle ?. The unit comes in one piece , so unscrew the existing Mushroom and replace with the unit . I put some grease on the mushroom o ring on the bottom and a little on the threaded part . I d
  5. I'm looking to upgrade sometime soon & thought this looked like an interesting machine but on another thread someone implied it's very overpriced as it's a vibe pump machine. I know you can't plumb vibe pumps but are there other issues with them? And what are peoples thoughts generally on the machine & it's pricing? Link below, thanks in advance https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/profitec-600-espresso-machine.html
  6. My setup is at various places around my kitchen, slowly running out of counter space!!! Just received a new Niche grinder this week, not used it yet as I want to finish the beans in my Baratza grinder first. Been in the hobby for some 5 years, however it's only been 18 months dabbling with dual boiler machines and only found this Forum about 12 months ago, so far it is given me some great tips and fabulous reads, we are lucky to have this forum no matter what stage you are at with your coffee making journey, just got to get the milk right using my Profitec!!!
  7. Hi guys I'm interested on a new coffee machine, what would you recommend between profitec pro 700, Izzo Alex duetto IV QuickMill QM67 or Rocket Appartamento ? I'm just checking around but I'm still not able to decide which model is the right buy ! The Alex Duetto looks very nice but I'm not sure if is going to be durable or not Please let me know what you think ! thank you !
  8. Hi, I have an issue with my Profitec 700 where turning the steam valve to the off position is still producing steam through the wand. I've had the machine under 2 years but haven't replaced any of the O-rings in the steam valve assembly and wondered whether a perished seal could be the cause. Nothing feels different in terms of turning the tap to the completely off position. Any help would be appreciated. Paul
  9. Does anyone have info on the upcoming T54 54mm burr grinder from Profitec, smaller brother of the T64? All I have been told is that it will be launched this year....
  10. Hey Everyone! Looking for a used machine- Appartamento or Profitec? Ideally with a grindr. Looking to spend less than or about 1,000 pounds. London area is ideal! Thanks, Kevin
  11. Hi all. Not posted here for quite some time (not since my review of my profitec pro 500 - which was some some considerable time ago!). I've had no issues with the machine at all. It has worked perfectly until recently where I've discovered there are two leaks - one from the plastic receptacle of the water tank valve, and the other (I think) from the solenoid. I've attached a couple of pictures. I've been chatting to Claudette at BB about it, but that was before the country went into lockdown and the majority of businesses have closed. I don't know if it's possible to replace either part (Claud
  12. have a friend whos thinking of going for a a profitec 300/700 which would yous suggest?
  13. Pro t64 64mm burrs Boxy looking.... Their first grinder but nothing new here to be honest
  14. I have a couple of questions regarding the use of plumbed in filtered softened water. First, the story:- I recently plumbed in my Profitec 700 using a BWT Bestmax Premium filter. Previously, for a period of 10 weeks I used Brita jug filtered water; splashes, on the drip tray and the front facia, dried leaving a white/grey lime stain which was easily removed by wiping with a soft ctoth. My water supply is hard or very hard (depends on which web-site one is looking at); local water supplier informs me that my water has a hardness of 301 ppm equivalent CACO3; a Calmag drop test pro
  15. Price £325. I bought this excellent coffee bean grinder in July 2017 (forum member), it has not really had too much use but it has given me great results. The original owner took great care of it and he paid £750 from Bella Barista when he bought it new. The grinder still performs flawlessly and is in excellent cosmetic condition. These machines can produce a little static so a modified grid has been installed. I have an original spare one if you prefer to use it. My grinds were very good and i did not really get any clumping. I also have the original box. If you do some searching you will fin
  16. I have a Niche Grinder, a Profitec 600 DB, and an Osmio Zero Reverse Osmosis System. I have had the Profitec 600 since first week in September and have struggled with the texturing of milk, I have tried 4 hole and 2 hole steam wand, steam comes out too powerfully for me, I have used at the last count 10 milk jugs, finally settled on a Blue Motta 350ml milk jug. A couple of days ago after having watched countless Youtube Vids and been through many litres of milk and jugs, something clicked with me and now I am getting reasonable results now, as in my pics. All I can say to Newbies lik
  17. Hi all, Just wanted to introduce myself and also ask for some advice on a bad case of upgradeitis!! A year ago, I ditched my Delonghi bean to cup machine for a Sage DTP with a Baratza Vario grinder. I’ve been relatively satisfied with it but must admit it hasn’t blown me away to the extent I was hoping. I think this is because we drink coffee from good coffee shops/restaurants. The wife still prefers the old Delonghi (!) but I think that’s more her not liking the new world of dosing, tamping, timing etc! Anyway, we drink almost exclusively long whites and espresso. At
  18. Hello all, hope this is ok to start another thread as I'm totally stuck. Apologies in advance if this is sound similar to the other thread i started. I did ask on the other thread about first machine for the house and i thought i decided on the machine and the grinder but after more and more reading i probably think that dual boiler might a waste for my need at home but we might need dual boiler when take the machine out for a private events or showcase. At home during the week either me or my wife probably only have 2 or 3 cups and at the weekend between 4-6 cups in total. We drink
  19. This could potentially be another OCD project methinks. Like the time I got a scratch on the car and I wondered how the heck I could get that away. Now many years later I am more than happy to discuss clear coat hardness of any given car/make model, how many microns you could polish off using this or that product.....you get the idea and maybe you have a similar experience :-) Nonetheless, this is the type of projects I really like. Learning new stuff, perfecting techniques and talking to and meeting new people interested in the same :-) Our setup is a Profitec Pro 300 bought at a lo
  20. Hi Folks. I'm looking for help, guidance, expert judgement, opinion, heresay or whatever, to assist me to decide on a prosumer machine. I've narrowed it down to two; the Profitec 700 Dual Boiler http://www.bellabarista.co.uk/profitec-700-dual-boiler.html and the Quick Mill Verona Dual Boiler - Bella Barista Edition http://www.bellabarista.co.uk/quick-mill-verona-dual-boiler-espresso-machine.html, both available for an identical price. So far, my observations are as follows: very similar but with these significant differences... the Profitec has S/S boilers and a slightly bigger
