New from Profitec - a grinder and a lever!

Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

I don't have any information besides a couple of pictures from Profitec's Facebook page. They've had a booth at the SCAE Nordic World of Coffee event in Gothenburg the last few days.

Here's the link - https://www.facebook.com/ProfitecEspresso/posts/715519738558866

The grinder looks potentially similar to their ECM Giottino, but who knows.

Discuss!

The lever is extremely exciting... I was an early adopter of the Profitec Pro 700 dual boiler and I'm a huge fan of the build quality and results in the cup. A 58 mm lever group from a good manufacturer will be great.

Looks like the lever might come with a PID:

Display with 4 at the end, minus on the left, plus on the right. Maybe?

Looks like the same lever group from the supplier that builds the group for Bosco, Londinium, Nuova Simonelli, Kees v.d.W. (for a few more months), Quick Mill, Salvatore, etc. The questions of the day would be: one spring or two? ...and Profitec seems to be able to get a unique feature from their suppliers and keep an exclusive on it for a while, e.g., a shot clock, now showing up on competitors' machines, so I wonder how they will distinguish themselves from the rest?

I think you're looking at the wrong machine. That's two pictures with two different machines, here's a better shot from Instagram from Gothenburg.

Looks a lot like a Bezzera Strega.

+1 In fact, looks like a hundred millions chrome boxes out there (not particularly commenting on the Profitec machines). :lol: Chrome box approach is probably the most economical production method that looks good but I'm hoping to see more. Surely there're some design-engineers out there that can think out of the box (pun intended). :P

Hate to burst your bubble, but that's the Pro 300 that has the PID. It doesn't look like the lever has one, at least not visible ...

Nice find! It appears to be their same PID display on their grinder. Curious if it's being used in any unique ways.

Soon... there will be a lot more 58mm lever group equipped domestic machines in the future... :twisted:
It could be as complex or as simple as you want. It's the choice of the barista.

JavaCup, I presume you are just speculating. This month we appear to be even, as the Profitec if produced will be new but the Kees Indrocompresso will no longer be made.

I am really interested in this machine but obviously more details will be helpful.

I have been leaning towards the Alex Leva, but Profitec stepping into the lever game is I think a very promising development.
