Bezzera Unica V2 Semi-Automatic PID Espresso Machine

Overview:

Newest sexy and sleek addition to 1st-line Equipment. Classic lever design. E61 grouphead. Polished stainless steel body. Thermosyphon tube system. Single boiler, dual purpose boiler regulated with a PID. Three liter water tank. Vibration pump. NSF approved Nistla (nickel) plated copper boiler. For those who cherish the best in an espresso only beverage, the Bezzera Unica is one of the top contenders for your use!

Features:

  • Single boiler machine: Handles both espresso extractions and steaming functions. To get to steam mode, the steam switch needs to be depressed.
  • PID temperature control: Manages the coffee and steam temperature set by the user.
    • The coffee temperature can be programmed between 80 C – 100 C.
    • The steam temperature can be programmed between 105 C – 120 C.
  • Stainless steel body: Polished to a mirror finish.
  • E61 grouphead: Hot water circulates from thermosyphon tubes to / from the grouphead and boiler. The purpose is to keep the grouphead and your portafilter nice and hot. This is dual purpose, single boiler machine that does not have a heat exchanger. Lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds.
  • Pump pressure gauge: Indicate brew pressure during espresso extraction. Below pump pressure gauge, there is a ‘P’ switch that powers on the pump for hot water delivery through the opened steam wand. The ‘O/I’ switch is for powering up the espresso machine. The light in between is the power light.
  • Multi-directional steam wand: Allows for more flexibility. Joystick controls for steam wand gives instant on / off operation as opposed to knobs that you must turn clockwise/counter clockwise. Control locks to full open in the up position allowing you to use both hands when steaming..
  • 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 and immediately prepare for the next extraction.
  • Over pressure valve (OPV): Adjustable.
  • Water tank: Very large and removable.
  • Passive cup warmer on the top: Heat from the boiler rises and heats the top panel. Like any other espresso machine, it can take up to two hours to preheat your cups. Therefore, it is better to flash heat the cups from hot water from the grouphead or steam/water wand.
  • 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, 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. Warning: Failure to fill the boiler with water or keep it filled with water (running boiler dry) can result in damage to the heating element for which the manufacturer will not accept responsibility. Therefore, upon first use of the machine, it is imperative to immediately run water through the steam wand. the same should be performed after steaming session of 20 or more ounces of milk as steaming milk will lower the water level in the boiler.

      Hi! I have a Unica that I purchased from you on 10/13/17 (invoice #147172) and I am having issues with it making a solid espresso. The pump is working, but it takes about 15 seconds for it start dripping, then it doesn't go past 4bar. If I use the blank for a try, it goes to 12bar but also after about 15-20 seconds. Also, if I flip the pump on it will take about 30-45 seconds for the pump to fill. Let me know how to proceed.

      Asked by Joe on September 9, 2021 5:12 pm
      Answered by the admin Remove any water softener or filter, if attached, and test. Run a descaler through the group and see if it improves with the blind filter. The 12 bar reached shows the pump reaches full pressure and systems are working. However, it should reach 9 bar in about 9-10 seconds.  If still an issue, it may need a new pump.
    2. Hi, I have Bezzera Unica machine. I made first espresso just fine today. While making second espresso I noticed it showed 0 pressure. I tested it with blind basket and it showed 0 pressure as well but pressure built up since water was released under huge pressure after I turned it off. When you turn it on water comes out slowly. But it seems once boiler was emptied out no water is coming out of the boiler. I had this problem twice in the past. I let the machine sit for weeks and all of the sudden it started working. Could there be something wrong with the pump or perhaps some dirt is blocking something making water not to be pumped? Here is the video I recorded of the machine: https://youtu.be/1I4ZhI8HpJU I see you are one of only a few that sells parts for this machine.

      Sorry, we are unsure as there could be a bad pump, dirty grouphead, bad OPV, or clog somewhere in the system. The machine should be checked by a professional.

      Answered by the admin It should work as it works on their Matrix and Duo.
    6. I have a Bezerra Unica and I believe it has a standard E61 group head and it has a nut in the middle of the group head for a pressure gauge. Do you sell a pressure gauge that would fit? I was told by Bezzera that vibe pumps read a little high (11 bar on the built-in gauge) but at the group it should be fine (a proper 9 bars). So, I'd like to confirm this. Also, if you do sell one I was curious if you had one without a brand name on it, like ECM, since the machine is a Bezzera.

      Asked by ido on November 16, 2020 5:29 pm
      Answered by the admin

      We do have one replacement boiler in stock.

    10. Thank you for the reply. However could it be a problem that it takes about 4-5 seconds to get to 3-4 bar? It is an awfully long time. Before after few seconds it went to 9-11 bar depending on the grind. Only with extra fine grind it goes to 9-11 bar however in that case pressures starts bouncing up and down during extraction, e.g. from 8 to 10, 7 to 10, 6 to 9, 9 to 10, etc. And it makes this noise while it is bouncing up and down. If we use good grind as we always it only goes to 3-4 bar and watery espresso comes out. Can I post a link to the video so you can see yourself?

      It can take up to 8 seconds to get p to full pressure. The coffee grinds absorbs coffee, as well. The swelling of the coffee and inconsistent grind usually creates the issue you are experiencing.

      If you like, the machine can be dropped off for service. Sorry, our roadside techs only work on commercial machines, and we are sorry that they do not want to be responsible for damages to a machine they need transport. We also do not ship machines dropped off for service because it will damaged on the return because we do not have the original packaging. Some clients do use ZipCar.

    12. Hi. Problem is not the grind as we are very familiar with the machine. It worked perfectly up until now. Now the issue is when you start making espresso it takes about 4 seconds to get to 3-4 bar and immediately watery coffee starts coming out, occasionally from 3-4 bar it may go up further to 6-7 bar but by then cup is full with watery coffee. Before when you waited about 4 seconds it went strait to about 10 bar before coffee started coming out. It looks like it is making the coffee wet during the 4 seconds and then water just go through wet coffee and espresso maker does not go above 3-4 bar. This is very strange since with blind filter basket it nicely holds at 10 bar. We have tried all different grinds. It is not the grind. So while the machine has the ability to hold at 10 bar with blind basket, the problem seems that it takes 3-5 seconds after you start making coffee to get to 3-4 bar where watery coffee just goes through fast even at fine grind. Can we bring the machine in for tune up to your facility? Alternatively when you are servicing in jersey city/Hoboken area could we drop it off with your technicians and just go pick it up or pay for return shipping? We do not have a car.

      If the blind filter does not replicate the same issue, this issue clearly points to the grind fineness and/or grinder. The blind filter tells us

      a) the pump can achieve 10 bar,

      b) the OPV opens at 10 bar,

      c) the system has no leaks as it maintains 10 bars.

      Hence, the machine is fine. We would feel that we would be cheating you if we had to service the machine and found nothing wrong.

    14. We have a Bezzera Unica espresso machine. Everything was working fine until brew pressure from nowhere started bouncing up and down during extractions. When Unica was working fine, after 2-4 seconds or so after you lift the lever, pressure went up to 10 or 11 bar and nicely stayed in this range without pressure bouncing during the entire extraction, making a perfect cup of espresso. Here are two problems I am experiencing: 1. When you start making espresso (when you lift the lever) for about 3-4 seconds Unica is making noise, then after 3-4 seconds at about just 2-3 bar coffee already starts coming out, but it is watery, really coffee is flowing at this low pressure, then during extraction it may go up to about 4-5 bar but I have to stop it since the cup is full by now with watery espresso. 2. When you start making espresso (when you lift the lever), for about 3-4 seconds Unica is making noise, then already at about 2-3 bar coffee starts coming out (it should really not until you get to about 10 bar), then it may go up to 8-10 bar, but now pressures starts bouncing up and down during extraction, e.g. from 8 to 10, 7 to 10, 6 to 9, 9 to 10, etc. And it makes this noise while it is bouncing up and down. 2. When you start making espresso (when you lift the lever), for about 3-4 seconds Unica is making noise, then it may go up to 10-11 bar, but now pressures starts bouncing up and down during extraction, e.g. from 8 to 10, 7 to 10, 6 to 9, 9 to 11, etc. And it makes this noise while it is bouncing up and down. This is what I have done to troubleshoot: 1. Grinding, dose, distribution, and temping is good. Have tried different grinds and temping but it makes no difference. Machine always worked fine and by now I am very much familiar with how Unica should behave with different coffees, grinds, temping, etc. 2. With the blind filter basket in, the brew pressure is steady at about 10 bar. There is no brew pressure bouncing up and down. Just holding nicely at about 10 bar. 3. Unica holds the temperature nicely, do not experience any problems with temperature There is a similar post about such problem here where the problem was the priming valve: https://www.home-barista.com/espresso-machines/anita-brew-pressure-bouncing-up-and-down-during-extraction-t5555.html Could it be that it is the priming valve? How do I fix it for the Bezzera Unica? Do you have any parts I can purchase from you or bring it in to your facility? Can someone from your tech department contact me. Thank you.

      "With the blind filter basket in, the brew pressure is steady at about 10 bar. There is no brew pressure bouncing up and down. Just holding nicely at about 10 bar."

      The blind test tells us that the machine is operating normally. If there was an issue with the machine, it would show up with the blind filter test because this is when the machine is stressed under maximum pressure.

      The issue is now pointing to the grinder, the amount of coffee in the basket, or the tamp. Most likely, the issue is the grinder - bad burrs causing inconsistent grind quality. we have seen some cases where the electrical current in the outlet caused the same issue.
