Bezzera Magica PID HX Tank Espresso Machine – v2

Overview:

The Bezzera Magica PID espresso machine features the classic E61 lever design grouphead. Polished stainless steel body. Thermosyphon heat exchanger system. Copper boiler with an internal heating exchanger that allows you to produce coffee, steam and hot water without delay. Four liter water tank. Vibration pump.

Features:

  • Heat exchanger allows you to brew coffee, steam milk, and pour hot piping water all at the same time.
  • PID Controls – for regulating the boiler temperature.
  • Stainless steel body polished to a mirror finish.
  • E61 grouphead – hot water circulates from the heat exchanger through the grouphead and back to keep the grouphead and your portafilter nice and hot.
  • Boiler pressure gauge (measures 0-3) to indicate steam boiler pressure.
  • Pump pressure gauge (measures 0-16) to indicate brew pressure during espresso extraction.Please note that the only time this gauge should be looked at is when extracting espresso. At all other times, the reading is irrelevant.
  • Lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds.
  • Multi-directional steam wand and hot water wand allow 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.
  • Powerful vibratory pump rated at 15 bar please note that only 9 bar is needed for espresso.
  • Three way solenoid valve allows quick removal of portafilter after espresso extraction.
  • Very large water tank (4 liters) – less refills for higher volume use.
  • Passive cup warmer on the top with guard rails.
  • Accessories – single spout portafilter, double spout portafilter, 1-cup filter basket, 2-cup filter basket, blind filter basket, plastic tamper, plastic scoop, grouphead cleaning brush, and instruction manual.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

  1. Top rails: The rails on the top cover can be removed to lower the height of the machine to ~14.75" (37.47 cm). Underneath the top cover there are 6 nuts (2 per rail) that you must unscrew. A 7 mm socket wrench should work.
  2. Manual Drain Valve: Starting with serial number NP01815321 and higher (until further notice from Bezzera and it may change again without notice), the minimum water level probe in the boiler has been removed. A manual drain valve has been added.

      This machine seems to have an E61 group. Can the user pre-infuse by partially opening the infusion valve?

      Asked by Ray Moral on April 17, 2021 10:03 am
      Answered by the admin Yes, the barista can lift the lever partially up. However, there is only pre-infusion from the little steam pressure created in the heat exchanger. This feature of the lever works better on machines that are plumbed in. On tank only models with vibration pumps, the pre-infusion is kinda built in to the pump. The reason is that it takes up to 9 seconds for the vibration pump to build pre-infusion at the grouphead.
    2. I ordered a Bezzera Magica and I'm having problems with the machine: the PID display turns on/off frequently, randomly. I understand this may be related to no water detected, and water softness. I am sure the tank is full and I started using bottled water (crystal geyser) to exclude this problem. The issue persists. What do you suggest to address the problem? I'd prefer to not return the equipment, but the machine is unusable in this state as it's impossible to predict when the machine will be warm and ready

      The Bezzera Magica PID espresso machine is very sensitive to water type used. Please watch our video as we go over how the incorrect water can shut the machine down and make it inoperative. Previous customers who had the same issue have resolved the issue by finding and changing to a water that can satisfy the requirement of the built-in safety features that prevent machine damage.
