Bezzera Mitica PID V2 Switchable Espresso Machine

Newest Bezzera Mitica PID heat exchanger model added to 1st-line Equipment. Can be switched from tank model to direct plumb. Classic E61 lever design grouphead. Polished stainless steel body. Copper boiler with an internal thermosypon heat exchanger that allows you to produce coffee, steam and hot water without delay. Four liter water tank. Rotary vane pump. One can not need anymore!


  • Heat exchanger with a large copper boiler: Allows you to brew coffee, steam milk, and pour hot piping water all at the same time.
  • PID controller allows programmability of temperature of boiler – the benefit is you can change it for different coffees
  • 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. Lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds.
  • Boiler pressure gauge: (measures 0-3) Indicates steam boiler pressure.
  • Pump pressure gauge: (measures 0-16) 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.
  • Multi-directional steam wand and hot water wand: Allows for more flexibility. The wands are not insulated and thus provided faster steaming / frothing of milk over ‘no-burn’ steam wands. Joystick controls for steam and hot water wands give instant on / off operation as opposed to knobs that you must turn clockwise / counter clockwise.
  • Rotary vane pump and motor: Situated underneath tank / reservoir and adjustment can be made from underneath the espresso machine.
  • Switchable from reservoir mode to direct plumb mode: In order to make the switch, there is a loose wire found in reservoir area inside. This wire needs to be connected. The included plug needs to be inserted into the reservoir connection underneath the reservoir. The plug needs to be removed from the water line connection under the machine, and the included stainless steel braided hose needs to be attached. We suggest purchasing the fitting we recommend to attach on the other end of the hose for the water line.
  • Three way manual solenoid valve: Allows quick removal of portafilter after espresso extraction by relieving the pressure built up in the grouphead.
  • Very large water tank: Less refills for higher volume use. Refilling occurs from top of machine by lifting up lid on hinges.
  • Passive cup warmer: Heated faster with the non-insulated boiler.
  • Auto-fill relay / brain unit: Made by Gicar. Placed on bottom base of unit away from the heat near the top of the machine. There is a cover placed over the relay to deflect possible water leakage.
  • Accessories included: Single spout portafilter, double spout portafilter, 1-cup filter basket, 2-cup filter basket, blind filter basket, plastic tamper, plastic scoop, grouphead cleaning brush, reservoir plug, 1.5 meter stainless steel braided hose, and instruction manual.

  1. Instruction manual: The instructions say there is a nipple but its not included.
  2. Portafilters: The portafilter handles may come with standard handle and not with the serpent logo as shown in the photograph. This is due to the manufacturer switching them without notifying us.

      Either the machine has purified water or limescale. We suggest adding a pinch of salt to your water and test.

      Otherwise, the machine may need a professional descaling. It can be shipped into us following our instructions or you can search for a local repair center.

      It can be a blockage in the system, or a faulty overpressure valve (OPV), or both. The inside of the spout will need to be investigated to confirm where the water is coming from.

      High steam pressure indicates a 'sticky' pressurstat which a descaling does not cover since the pressurstat is much higher than the water level in the boiler. Typically, after a descaling, change this presurstat. Please look at the diagrams on our web site for the correct one.

      One can not go by feeling on the water level in the boiler. The areas of concern can be a faulty pump to refill; a faulty solenoid valve for the boiler refill; the water level sensor can be scaled up, oxidized, or have a bad teflon protector; and/or, faulty wiring or faulty brain unit.
