Bezzera Strega Switchable V2 TOP Espresso Machine

Overview:

There are times when one wants the best espresso extraction without hesitating to what is involved to install a quality espresso machine and without hesitating to learn the skills needed to make it happen. Well, after setting up this machine, using the appropriate commercial grade grinder, and refining our skills, you, like we did, may see every other espresso machine as inadequate!

The reason is the flavor profiles offered by the Strega line are extraordinary!

We, at 1st-line, do sell coffee beans that we do not personally like, but our customers very much love. After experimenting with many different blends of coffee, we were amazed in the quality of the cup on the beans we normally do not like! This spoke volumes about the Strega.

The only downside was the lever requires some muscle! The lever is pushed down against a spring until the lever locks into position. After locking and after the bottom rim of the demitasse cup is covered with espresso, the lever needs to be disengaged from the locked position, and the spring will push the lever up. If the grind is too coarse, the lever will come up too fast. If there is no coffee in the basket or the portafilter is missing, this lever will snap upwards. We warn you that the lever can cause personal injury to your face or eye socket. BE CAREFUL NOT TO PLACE YOUR FACE IN FRONT OF THE LEVER AT ANY TIME!

Features:

  • Double water supply / switchable: This machine can be operated with the tank / reservoir only or it can be plumbed directly to the water line. Our suggestion on initial usage, to avoid heating element damage, is to first operate the unit as a tank model.
  • Vibration pump: Activated to refill boiler or when lever is brought into down, locked position for pre-infusion.
  • Pressurstat: Monitor boiler’s steam pressure.
  • Grouphead: Heated by a separate heating element to keep the temperature more stable.
  • Stability: There are weights placed in the lower rear of the machine’s interior to keep it more stable while pulling it down on the lever.
  • Hot water wand: Located on the right side. Multi-directional. Activated using joystick control.
  • Steam wand: Located on the left side. Multi-directional and utilizes non-compression valve with a joystick control.
  • Boiler pressure gauge: Indicates steam pressure in boiler.
  • Drip tray: Made of stainless steel. Removable for manual cleaning. Optional drip tray to drain is available (order parts #12 through #17 in direct connect diagram).
  • Accessories included: Single spout portafilter, double spout portafilter, 1-cup filter basket, 2-cup filter basket, handle for lever, stainless steel braided hose, grouphead cleaning brush, plastic tamper, and plastic measuring scoop.

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. 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.

      What's the value of the pump infusing water into the group head? Why is this better than simply allowing the boiler pressure to push the water in?

      That value is based on your coffee grind fineness. It is a different design to have the pump. Bezzera researched this and it is their opinion that it makes a superior quality in the cup.

    2. Hi I wanted to buy the Pro.El.Ind. 7661033.01 Brain Unit – LIV-BZ3SB, 110V but it is no longer available. I was wondering if there is another Brain Unit that would work with my Strega? Thanks so much for your help.

      Sorry, we do not have any alternatives at this time. We suggest your try Pasquini directly.

    4. My Bezzera Strega espresso machine purchased from you recently had a mechanical problem and was hoping you can help. A few seconds after startup it tries to fill water from the reservoir into the boiler. However, instead of the normal pump sound there's a quite hum. The sound remains until I shut off the machine. The pump for group head works fine. When the problem doesn't occur the machine works fine. Any ideas on the cause and fix?

      Answered by the admin There is a blockage somewhere from the pump to the boiler refill.
    6. The steam wand lever is falling out of the ring nut surrounding it after about 2 years of use. Does this ring nut need to be replaced? There are metal shavings inside the ring nut when I pull it out and I wonder if it's from the ring nut wearing down? It seems that the opening on the ring nut is now too big to contain the lever. I believe from your diagram that this ring nut is part # 5222823CM RING NUT 3/8”G H17. I do not see this part on your website. Does this seem to be the part I need? If so, are you able to get it?

      Sorry to hear about this. We would need to get this part in our next shipment.

    8. I bought this machine from you 3 years ago. it suddenly trips the breaker after a few minutes of being turned on. Upon inspection, I think there is a sudden leak apperaing, I guess when the water reaches a certain pressure/temperature, that seems to come from the bottom of the boiler, drips on the box below containing various wires, then it trips. Any suggestions about repairs, is it even worth if it is the boiler? Thanks, Giulio

      The leak will need to be searched for inside the machine. Usually, it is not the boiler. If a fitting, it sometimes can be removed, cleaned and reassembled.

    10. I have a Strega and when I pull the lever down I can hear the pump humming but not vibrating to the preinfusion is weak. Also, I hear the humming like it’s trying to pump when I turn it on but doesn’t make the regular vibration sound. This have been happening more and more. Sometimes the pump makes there sound its suppose to other times it sounds like it’s trying to pump but just hums. Do I need to replace the vibration pump? Thanks. I was told by your office person who answers the phone to ask the question here to get an answer instead of just getting the answer directly.

      Answered by the admin Please note all out of warranty technical questions are answered for free via our Q&A feature on each product page. For machines under warranty, phone support is included with the purchase of the machine. We suggest first running a descaler through the grouphead only and see if the issue improves. If not, a new vibration pump (check and confirm model of your pump before ordering on our web site as different versions could have been placed in the Strega) is recommended.
    12. I bought this machine from you several years ago. The current problem is that the pressure occasionally goes beyond the set point. I routinely descale, which helps but does not completely solve the problem. Do I need a new part, or should a do something with this part to fix it? Jim helped me with this same problem on a tech call, but I can't remember what he told me to do. Thx.

      Diagrams for the Bezzera Strega can be reviewed on our web site.

      Most times, the overheat situation is created by a sticky pressurstat - caused by limescale build up from hard water or oxidation from too pure water. A descaling will not clean the pressurstat because the solution stops much further below in the boiler.

      Hence, the pressurstat can be cleaned once removed. However, in most cases, it should be replaced after a machine desclaing. Part number 7433013 or 7433024 depending upon your model and version machine.

      Other areas, with less probability, that can cause an overheat is a blocked pressurstat pipe, a faulty brain unit, or a faulty heating element that is sending power through ground.
