If temperature control and stability is what you’re looking for, your search is over! The Bezzerra DUO’s uses two separate PID’s to control the temperature of the coffee boiler and the water/steam boiler. 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 espresso machine that will make 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
Independently Controlled Boilers
Two 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!
The E61 grouphead ensures consistent water stability. Hot water circulates from the boiler through the grouphead and back to keep the grouphead and your portafilter nice and hot. Lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to draw water through the coffee grinds.
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 the coffee remains hot.
Automatic Water Refill to Boiler
Automatic plus safety cutout to prevent machine damage.
