Bezzera Matrix MN Dual Boiler Espresso Machine
The Bezzera Matrix MN is a visionary dual boiler espresso machine that boasts touchscreen control over dual PIDs, programmable pre-infusion, automated backflushing, and plumbed operation. Its vibrant, color changing panels allow the Matrix to easily mesh with any kitchen.
Owning the Bezzera Matrix MN
The Matrix MN will stand out in any modern kitchen with its wooden detailing, stainless steel front panel and customizable body color that adapts to any environment or taste. Just like the Bezzera DUO MN, the Matrix MN packs a dual boiler, one dedicated to steam and the other to brew water, both of which are regulated by individual PIDs. In combination with the traditional E61 group, which constantly syphons hot water through the brew circuit, this makes for seriously temperature stable operation. The vibrant touch screen display rests on the PIDs for temperature changes on the fly, with the brew temp displayed on the left and the steam temp on the right. Within a few clicks you can program the machine to turn on and off at particular times, change from reservoir to plumbed operation, and access maintenance cycles. The display will also alert you to low water levels in the reservoir, and remind you to replace or recharge your water filter as necessary. To avoid refills altogether, you can plumb the machine directly into a water line, which allows you to easily integrate a BWT filtration system and eliminate scale build up at the same time. Our favorite element, as you might imagine, are the Matrix MN’s side panels. They can be customized to your heart’s content across the RGB color spectrum, which, we admit, is what we spent a majority of our time doing when the Matrix MN first arrived.
The Matrix MN isn’t just nice to look at, though, it delivers delicious shots, too. Bezzera integrated an automated pre-infusion cycle, programmable right from the touch screen, that soaks the grounds at a low pressure prior to brewing for excellent extractions. Brew using the intuitive push button and toggle operation, where each function is designated by a stylized icon. The Matrix MN’s steam wand toggles on for powerful steaming, and flipping it up locks it into place for an uninterrupted stream. Not only does the Matrix MN have a ton of functionality for truly excellent shots, she’s just so pretty. If you’re more of a traditionalist, the DUO MN version might be a better option, as they operate the same sans LEDs; but, if you’re like us and want programmable brewing so that you can press a button and get back to the fun of painting with all the colors of the wind, the upgraded Matrix DE model is calling your name.
An intuitive 3.5” touchscreen display lets you check and change boiler temperatures with the Matrix MN’s dual PIDs in a snap. The internal menu allows you to easily program pre-infusion, get maintenance alerts, and switch between reservoir and plumbed modes. You can even program on/off times for every day of the week. So you can wake up and brew without any wait.
Dual PID Temperature Controllers
The Matrix MN offers you total control over your espresso and milk based drinks with its dual PID thermostats. You can regulate the steam boiler temperature within a range of 212°F to 266°F, and the brew temperature within 190°F to 204°F. Grant priority to one boiler over the other during heat up, or allow them to alternate priority as they normally would.
Color-Customizable Body Panels
Customize your Matrix MN’s look across the color spectrum with it’s lit up LED body panels. You can choose between seven RGB combinations for a range of blue, green, red, and purple colors, while also adjusting the brightness of the panels to really hone in on a mood. An espresso machine has never looked so good.
Bezzera is one of the only espresso machine manufacturers to not only assemble its own machines in house, but design many of their own components and assemble those, too. So, rather than buying components externally and designing their machines around them, Bezzera thoughtfully designs each element, bringing them together into a beautiful whole.
