Bezzera Unica V2 Semi-Automatic PID Espresso Machine
The Bezzera Unica is a rugged espresso machine with an old-world personality that speaks to people who really love espresso. The standout feature of the Unica is its PID. The PID controller moderates the boiler temperature for both steaming and brewing, giving the Unica great temperature stability and the ability to tinker for anyone who wants a more nuanced extraction from specialty coffee. It's important to keep in mind that this is a single boiler machine, which means the Unica uses a single boiler for brewing and steaming. A little extra patience is required when switching from brewing to steaming while the boiler heats up. With that said, the Unica is well-built with a 3-way solenoid valve, a vibration pump, and the iconic E61 group head made of chrome-plated brass. The machine comes with a multi-directional steam wand with a joystick control and a two-hole steam tip, as well.
