Bezzera BZ13 DE with Rosewood Accents Overview

The Bezzera BZ13 DE with Rosewood accents is an incredible heat-exchanger espresso machine, with style and performance to spare. The industrial charm paired with modern technology makes this semi-automatic a delight to work with, and the rosewood accents offer a nice conversation piece. For starters, the BZ13 DE is ready to brew and steam straight out of the box thanks to the copper heat-exchanger boiler which can heat to brew temperature in just 8 minutes. This means that while you go through your morning routine and grind, level and tamp your coffee, the BZ13 will probably be ready to brew before you are.

Features and Performance

Heat-exchange boilers are a big deal if you’re serious about your coffee. If you’re hosting guests and you’re making milk-beverages back-to-back, then a machine like the BZ13 DE is perfect for you and your lifestyle. Add on the intuitive PID controller and you’re on your way to becoming the talk of the town. You’ll be able to directly control the temperature of the steam boiler, with the brew temperature offset displayed on the screen. Whether you’re steaming milk for a latte, cappuccino, a flat white or a macchiato. The heat-exchanger boiler on the BZ13 DE handles all of the work for you while the PID features gives you control over the final results of your beverage, and keeps temperatures stable.

    I purchased the Bezzera BZ13 DE Espresso Machine along with the Bezzera BB005 Grinder about 4 months ago. I wanted to spend some time with it before giving it a review. This was a significant upgrade for me from the Gaggia Classic I had been using for several years. I will submit a separate review for the grinder.

    I think the Bezzera BZ13Read more about review stating the BZ13 DE DE is a classically beautiful espresso machine to have in my kitchen. I love the fast heat time with the electronically heated BZ group. I love the fast heat up time. It is easy to operate and very easy to clean. The drip tray is easy to remove. There is plenty of volume in the water reservoir. It has a lot of steam pressure for frothing. HFC has plenty of information and videos to learn and get the best from the machine.

    It did take me a few weeks to really feel comfortable using the machine. I had to really learn the importance of coffee bean type, the correct espresso grind, brew time, etc. There is so much more steam pressure compared to the Gaggia Classic I had been using that it took me quite awhile to learn to get the silky smooth milk needed for good latte art. After the initial break in period with the new grinder, I switched to the permanently bottomless portafilter which I really like. Having the bottomless portafilter really helps seeing if there are problems with the extraction process.

    As far as the operation, I really like the levers for the steam and hot water taps. The fully articulated commercial type steam wand works great for finding that perfect position for frothing milk.

    I do use the Programmable Volumetric Brewing Buttons. Instead of programming the buttons for single and double shots, I program the buttons for different types of espresso bean. So I program the one shot button say for a medium dark roast and the two shot button for a dark roast. The one thing to be aware of is that brew time varies a little from one brew to the next. Usually a few tenths of a second to a whole second which will cause the volume of the shots to vary. I am not sure why it does that. It does seem that the program time will vary if there is a few tenths of a gram coffee difference between shots, tamping, the freshness of the coffee, etc. I have thought about submitting a question to HFC to better understand the Programmable Volumetric Brewing Buttons better. I do use the program buttons on a daily basis and I reset the program time as needed, it is very easy to do. I periodically pull a shot on the scale to get the proper volume of espresso and the time needed.

    When I first got the machine it seemed that the brew pressure was pretty high. It was about 13.8 bar with the blind filter basket. Following the HFC video instruction I reset the pressure to about 11.4. I get about 10.9 to 11.0 bar when brewing now. I am not sure what pressure that gets me at the group head. Another question I have thought about asking HFC.

    I really like this machine and it is a joy to use.

    I am opening a very small coffee and sandwich shop with a smaller budget. After doing my research, this machine met my space requirements as well as my budget. This is the first “professional” machine, so there was a learning curve for me. It took about 1lb of coffee and a carton of milk to get that perfect 9 bar level and foam I needed for the peRead more about review stating I love this machine!rfect Italian Espresso and Cappuccino. So far, I am absolutely thrilled with this machine! It suits my needs and it’s beautiful.

    I bought this espresso machine as an upgrade to my Miss Silvia (which was very good) . The BZ13 has excellent temperature stability (as measured by a Thermocouple in a portafilter arrangement). However although it does come up to temperature in less than 8 minutes (and can make good espresso at that point) full stability does appear to take longerRead more about review stating Bezzerra BZ13 – Nice Upgrade For Me than 8 minutes. Makes great consistent espresso and steams 200 ml of milk very quickly with capacity to spare. I am very pleased so far.

    I love this machine! We have been using a Rancilio Silvia for the last 12 years and was ready to move up. I really wanted a double boiler but they were out of my budget. I was worried that a heat exchanger would not be as good, but I am very happy with how this performs. It only took me a few shots to get my grind dialed in, then programmed the tiRead more about review stating I love this machine! Wemer for a double shot, and the results have been consistent and wonderful. The quality of the shots and the foam are both much better than anything I could do with my Silvia machine. The videos at HARFAN COFFEE were helpful, although a specific video for setup and first use for each model would be a great addition to their video library, as the owner’s manual is a bit cryptic.
