Over in the Knockbox forum, there's a thread on a new grinder and lever espresso machine from Profitec
. Seems only right to have a thread in the Lever forum for discussion of this new machine.
Information and photos on Profitec's Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 554&type=3
In the photo above, does it look to anyone else like the drip tray and the main carcass of the machine are poorly joined?
My questions right now:
-Dipper or thermosyphon?
Dipper, according to an Australian distributor
- Size of boiler?
3.5 litre copper
boiler (that's interesting given all the hoopla about Profitec stainless boilers)
- How does the PID come into play?
Used only to adjust boiler temperature
- 240V heating element(s)?
230V, 1600W (Australian spec, anyway); US specs still unclear
- To be released when?
Looks like shipments may begin in July.
Insanely priced in Australia; US price still TBA
Would be nice to see some photos of this machine's innards.
