Bezzera Magica PID Overview
The Bezzera Magica PID in rosewood is a classically designed heat exchanger espresso machine, decked out in beautifully polished stainless steel with the addition of natural rosewood accenting. 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 flaunts elegant rosewood accents on the steam and hot water taps, E61 lever, and portafilters. 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.
With the addition of flow control, you can have more control than ever over how you pull your shots. By changing the flow of the water to your portafilter, you can customize your preinfusion for perfectly saturated pucks and experiment with different flow profiles to match your taste preferences.
