If temperature control and stability is what you’re looking for, your search is over! The Bezzerra DUO’s uses three, count them three, PID’s to control the temperature of the coffee boiler, the water/steam boiler, AND the grouphead itself! We caught a first-look of the DUO at HOST Milan 2017, and we were thoroughly impressed with the thought Bezzerra has put into this new dual boiler machine that will deliver for espresso drinkers searching for a machine that make obtaining distinct flavor profiles with ease.
Bezzera equips the DUO with a beautiful 3.5″ LED touch display that allows the user to program a number of functions with ease. Adjusting the temperature between the two boilers is crystal clear, as well as checking the water levels. Other programmable on the touch pad include:
- pre-infusion, priority heat up between boilers
- auto on/off settings
- switch between direct plumb and reservoir
- automatic backflush program
- maintenance reminders
- selection of language
A keypad above the grouphead displays four designated buttons for volumetric coffee dosing, as well as a fifth button with Bezzera’s insignia for manual dosing.
Independently Controlled Boilers
Three separate PID’s control the .45 L coffee boiler and 1L water/steam boiler. You can even program through the touch display which boiler you’d prefer to heat up first!
PID Temperature-Controlled Grouphead
The Bezzera grouphead on the electronic version of the Matrix has its own PID–providing superior temperature control. This allows you to precisely understand what temperature you prefer for various blends.
Multi Directional Steam and Hot Water Wand
Allows for more flexibility. Joystick controls for steam and hot water wands give instant on / off operation as opposed to knobs that you must turn clockwise / counter clockwise. Each has a rubber cover to prevent fingers from burning.
Less plastic is always a bonus in our eyes. The Matrix is designed with wooden handles on not only the portafilter, but the joysticks and lever as well.
Three Way Solenoid Valve
Allows quick removal of portafilter after espresso extraction by relieving the pressure built up in the grouphead. The result is a dry puck of coffee you can easily knock out of the portafilter.
Rotary Vane Pump and Motor
Produces a quieter extraction vs a vibratory vane pump. Situated underneath tank / reservoir and adjustment can be made from underneath the espresso machine.
Very Large Water Tank
A 4 L water reservoir means less refills for higher volume use, low water levels are detected by an electronic senor and are indicated on touch display. Refilling occurs from top of machine by lifting up lid on hinges.
Passive Cup Warmer
Able to hold up to six cappuccino cups and passively warm them to ensure coffee remains hot.
Automatic Water Refill to Boiler
Automatic plus safety cutout to prevent machine damage.
