Bezzera Matrix Overview
Bezzera Matrix PID

Description

The Bezzerra Matrix glowed (quite literally) at HOST Milan 2017.  Every attendee, including us, were drawn to this illuminated machine like moths. We very quickly realized upon talking directly with Bezzerra that there is more than meets the eye with this dual boiler machine. Along with a durability that is inherent in Bezzera machines, the Matrix has been thoughtfully developed with user functionality as a key focus as well as its attractive design. If you need a machine to entertain with two different PID’s, look no further!

PID Touch Display

Bezzera equips the Matrix 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. The color of the signature LED body panels on the Matrix also can be adjusted in the settings of the touch display. 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
Illuminated LED Body Panels

Made from durable plexiglass, these LED body panels provide eye-catching illumination for the home. Colors can be customized on the touch display to fit any mood. The glow is beautifully reflected off the stainless steel body that is polished  to a mirror finish.

Independently Controlled Boilers

Two separate PID’s control the thermostats for 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! All controlled by its 3.5″ touch display.

E61 Grouphead

The E61 grouphead ensures consistent water stability. Hot water circulates from the boiler through the grouphead and back. The result?  The grouphead and your portafilter stays nice and hot, especially important to get a nice shot of espresso. A lever next to the grouphead easily activates 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. In addition, each has a rubber cover to prevent fingers from burning.

Wooden Elements

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 than a vibratory vane pump. Situated underneath tank / reservoir, so adjustments 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

In addition to automatic refilling of the boiler, the Matrix also has a safety cutout to prevent machine damage.

Accessories included:
  • Single and Double spout portafilter w/ wood handles
  • 1-cup & 2-cup filter baskets
  • Blind filter basket
  • Plastic tamper
  • Plastic scoop
  • Grouphead cleaning brush
  • Reservoir plug
  • 1.5 meter stainless steel braided hose
  • Instruction manual.

    Hi Carol, great questions!

    Years ago, it was not good to have a rotary vane pump pull water from a reservoir because they were not designed for double duty.  However, they have improved many of these pumps to withstand pulling water from a reservoir.

    The nice part of the Bezzera double boilers is that the water is gravity fed from the bottom of the reservoir to the pump. The downside is in tank water softening. If going this route, the Oscar150 is the best solution for bottom gravity feed from the water reservoir to the pump. It takes magnesium and calcium and turns it into low grade salt. The nice part is that Bezzera machines with a gravity feed reservoir are very finicky to have some minerals to allow 5 volts to pass from one sensor to the other. Therefore, very pure or distilled water will not allow the machine to heat because the 5 volts of electricity can not pass through. Hence, the Oscar150 does good. The downside to the Oscar150 is that it needs 15 hours to make the ion exchange. Therefore, it should be placed in a pitcher with water for 15 hours. The refrig is ok!

    As for direct plumbing, BWT is the way to go. We were the first to test and carry the systems in the USA, and everyone else followed our suit. Make sure to get the meter so you can program the meter to measure the volume of water going through. The flush valve is important to clear 3 gallons of rinsing the filter before it enters the machine. Many do not know that many high quality filters will have some paper sediment from manufacturing, and this sediment can clog the tiny openings in the valves of the machine. If one clogs the boielr refill valve to the boiler, the heating element can be damaged for a costly repair. Check out this BWT kit where you can package deal some of the items together for a discount!
