Bezzera Magica PID Overview
The Bezzera Magica PID is a classically designed heat exchanger espresso machine, decked out in beautifully polished stainless steel with spring loaded steam and hot water taps. Its 2 liter copper boiler conducts heat quickly, and being a HX machine you can brew and steam simultaneously. With a wide frame that supports multiple cups and a massive 4 liter water reservoir make the Magica PID an ideal machine for entertaining.
Features and Performance
The Magica PID's 2 liter copper boiler and E61 group ensure temperature stability throughout the brewing process. The inclusion of a PID controller helps to prevent swings in boiler temperatures and allows you to make changes on the fly from the exterior of the machine. As with all heat exchanger machines, you can brew and steam simultaneously, so whether your making a solo drink in the morning before work, or entertaining multiple guests, the Magica PID is ready to pull double duty.
On the outside, the Magica PID embodies the retro Italian design that comes naturally to Bezzera. The iconic E61 group with the Bezzera portafilters, steam and hot water joysticks, dual pressure gauges, and of course the iconic Biscione logo make for a timeless aesthetic. Not a small machine, the Magica PID's wide drip tray provides ample space for cups, while the cup warmer itself has plenty of room for cappuccino/latte drinkware.
Espresso is brewed with a traditional vibration pump with a more gradual ramp up to full brew pressure. Unlike most home machines, the reservoir on the Magica PID holds 4 liters of water, making refills less frequent than usual.
Why You Should Get It
To be frank, nothing gets easier than a heat exchange boiler regulated by a PID system. If you’re someone who entertains frequently, or your household needs multiple coffees in the morning, the Bezzera Magica PID and its impressively sized, 4 liter reservoir, means back to back brewing is quick and efficient. Not only that, but the Magica PID will provide that true cafe-quality experience in your own home; it doesn't get more traditional than the Magica.
