Bezzera Mitica PID V2 Switchable Espresso Machine

Overview:

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!

Features:

  • 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.

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. 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.
  3. 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.

      No worries. Sorry for the delay as we are in busy season and staff members getting the flu.

    2. Greetings again. You helped me with a sticky solenoid back in April 2022 that was solved after descaling my Bezzera Mitica (model purchased from 1st Line in 2014). I recently noticed more water than usual in the drip tray and observed a light stream of water exiting from the suppression valve drain fitting when pulling a shot of espresso. The machine is clean. I suspect it has something to do with the suppression valve. Should I replace the suppression valve spring (listed in your parts) or the whole valve assembly or is it another problem. Machine functions perfectly otherwise. I make 3 to 4 coffees/day. Thanks, RS

    4. I have the Mitica PID machine but am confused about which group head gasket I need to order. I looked at the parts diagram and it lists part#5493039 when doing a search it lists that gasket (58mm) but I was thinking it was an Faema E-61 Grouphead Gasket – 8 mm, soft. Could i please get clarification on gasket? Thanks.

      If you want OEM, please search and select for the Bezzera gasket number. Otherwise, most 8mm E61 portafilter gaskets will fit.

    6. I bought a Bezzera Mitica from you in June 2014 (serial #0090xxxxx). It has performed flawlessly. I maintain it making 3 to 5 espressos a day. Last night it started to make a screeching sound (like...errrrrrr) into the pull. Do I have a vibration pump or a solenoid going out? I am pretty handy and probably could change it out. Or who do you recommend in the Minneapolis/St Paul area? Thanks, RS

      good to hear that the machine worked so good for so long. Screeching sounds like a solenoid valve. Sorry, we no longer recommend companies publicly as we do not want to be blamed when things go awry. Prolly a good idea to try a descaling first, then contact a local repair company.

      A I took your advice and decalcified my machine (Ascaso washer = needs 2 liters to do the job). Works fine now. Must have been a solenoid sticking. I use filtered water and an OPSCAR 90 in the tank to reduce the amount of minerals deposited but will now consider decalcifying the unit annually or so. Thanks for your great service, I just wish you had coffee on the same site. RS

      One can leave the machine powered on all day, but it just uses more cycles. Also, any espresso machine that has less than 4 liter boiler size should only have 4 ounces of water extracted at a time from the hot water spigot UNTIL the boiler stops refilling.

    18. Good afternoon 1st-Line Team! I'm looking at the ECM Technica and the Bezzera Mitica. The exact cabinet height above the counter is 15 15/16." The Spec Mitica ht is 17." How much of the Mitca height is "foot" above the height necessary for the waterline connection? With a shorter foot, can the Bezzera Mitica fit under 15-15/16" cabinet?

      We just measured one Bezzera Mitica espresso machine that measured ~15 7/8th". However, we did find optional feet that would lower it to a maximum height of about 14 3/4" with a very tight fit on the underside. This will be considered a customization option done behind the scenes.

    20. Hello, I have 1 1/2 year old PID Mitica and recently the PID started shutting off after the machine has been on for a few hours. The red power light stays on but the PID goes off and the pump doesn't work so no espresso, steam or water. I have to shut the machine off and let it totally cool down before the PID will come back on again. Is it possible to bypass the PID so the machine still works? Other options? I'm guessing something needs to be replaced but frankly I'd prefer not to keep replacing a PID that seems to control everything. Thanks

      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.

    24. Hello. I have a 4yr old Mitica which serves me well. As of a few months ago, the steam pressure in the boiler goes to high and pops the valve. It seems to me there may be a problem with the low water sensor as sometimes I feel like the boiler water level is low and then after a small amount of water is expelled it fills up with a lot of water. Also I have noticed sometimes the machine doesn't shut off when the water level is too low in the reservoir (not plumbed). I descale once or twice annually as the water in NY is pretty good and I do use an OSCAR water treatment. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

      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.
