The Matrix DE is a luxe dual boiler espresso machine with color customizable panels, an intuitive touch screen display, triple PID thermostats, automated pre-infusion, brewing, and backflushing, that automatically made our list of top five awesome prosumers.
Bezzera Matrix DE Overview
Please Read Before Purchasing:
Bezzera has updated their Matrix espresso machines with a 20 amp power cord.
We are including an adapter for you to use if you only have a 15 amp outlet available.
If you are connecting your machine to a 15 amp outlet, you must NOT use the option for both boilers to heat at the same time.
During bench testing, we have set your machine to be “Coffee” Boiler priority. We strongly recommend that you do not change this setting.
The Matrix DE is a sight to behold and a beast to brew with. The light scattering side panels can be set to different colors for a dazzling display in the kitchen, and the touchscreen display offers access to all of the Matrix DE's functionality. Three PID temperature controllers add incredible temperature stability.
Features and Performance
Just like on the MN model, the Matrix DE can morph from one color to the next to accommodate shifting tastes, using the touch screen display. From the display you can also control the brew and steam boiler temperatures by adjusting their respective PIDs, and, unlike the MN, a third PID automatically regulates the temperature in Bezzera’s specially designed, electronically heated group head.
Within a few clicks you can program the machine to turn on and off at particular times, change from reservoir to plumbed operation, and instruct the machine to backflush itself. A major upgrade from the MN version is the Matrix DE’s volumetric brewing capability. You can program four different shot volumes or brew manually, because Bezzera is all about options and we are here for it.
They also let you choose between plumbed and reservoir operation, and, another new addition, choose which boiler has priority during heat up. Or, you could just program your Matrix DE to turn on automatically before you wake up so it’s ready to brew by the time you’re ready to stand.
The Matrix DE features the same automated pre-infusion as found on the MN model, and operation is the same. Brewing is easy using the intuitive push button and toggle operation; each function designated by a stylized icon. Steaming too, the Matrix DE’s rosewood steam knob toggles on for powerful steaming, and flipping it up locks it into place for an uninterrupted stream. You can get really amazing shots on-demand if you dial in the pre-infusion and shot times, or experiment by brewing manually depending on your mood, which, we assume is linked to whatever the color of your machine is that day.
