Bezzera New Hobby Overview
The Bezzera New Hobby is a semi-automatic espresso and coffee machine with impressive performance for its range, equipped with a 3-way solenoid valve, a commercial-grade group head, commercial standard 58 mm portafilter, and an 8.4 fluid oz eco brass boiler that's bursting with steam power.
Features and Performance
The New Hobby features a lot of the industry essentials, which is great for such a small machine. The 58mm portafilter, commercial grade group, and commercial style steam wand offer quality tools in crafting your own coffee drinks at home. Plus, the 3-way solenoid valve will keep your used coffee pucks dry for easy discarding (a feature you don't typically find in machines of this size).
We have a lot of latte drinkers here at the office, so when we started preparing drinks it was quickly decided that the Hobby's steaming capability is its most impressive feature. To see steam explode from such a small machine is something you really need to see. For more control, we worked with Bezzera to have this version of the Hobby include a commercial steam wand. Also deserving special mention is the dedicated button for the pump for manually refilling the boiler after extended steaming.
