    Minore IV - Domobar Jn - Musica - Profitec Pro 500

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Would really appreciate some snob knowledge on the mentioned machines.
    I'm looking at the entry level HX price point, and essentially comparing:
    Domobar Jn
    Musica
    Profitec 500
    However i include the Minore as I respect the Expobar quality.

    Musica has appeal due to it steam wand credentials. I (my wife) like the instant on operation, and it claims to be relatively powerful and easy to use.
    Profitec has been given good reviews on build quality which i question about the Musica.
    Domobar Jn has got a pretty good following, not aware of any shortcomings

    And if remain unconvinced on any of the above, i will probably revert to the Expobar; but i'd really appreciate feedback on the 3 HX's
    In particular the Musica, which my wife finds the most visually appealing.

    Being paired with a mid range grinder (which may be the next upgrade) and will operate on 3-5 coffees daily (3 x milks)
    Steam arm is crucial, i'm wanting ease of use and pressure/quality.
    Not fussed on lever or programmed button.

    Anything else worth considering??

    Hi Kpac,

    I've just gotten a Profitec 500 from Jetblack a week ago and can honestly say the steam wand is pretty awesome and loving the cool touch wand.

    The controls are quite easy to operate. I'm planning on plumbing mine in once I get the bosses approval..

    I don't think you'd have any issues with it although some of the other snobs with more time with it should be able to throw some additional information about it.
