Bezzera DUO MN Dual Boiler Espresso Machine

Features and Performance

The DUO MN is a sister machine to the Matrix MN, and as such they share many of the same features. The most impressive of which is the vibrant touch screen display that can be used to adjust the dual PIDs which control the individual temperatures for both the brew and steam boilers. The display rests on the PID, with the brew temp on the left and the steam temp on the right.

With a few clicks you can program the machine to turn on and off at particular times, change from reservoir to plumbed operation, and access maintenance cycles. The display will also alert you to a low amount of water in the reservoir and to replace or recharge your water filter as necessary. To avoid refills altogether, plumb the machine directly into a water line. With the Bezzera DUO MN you can brew more, think less, and sip cup after cup of premium espresso.

This machine is geared toward the traditionalist aesthetically, but the inclusion of a 3.5” touch display is all modern. A traditional E61 group syphons water in a circuit from the brew boiler, through the group head, and back, for even greater temperature stability. We love the DUO MN’s automated preinfusion cycle, programmable using the touch screen, that pre-wets the grounds for maximum flavor, before brewing with a traditional lever system.

Brewing is easy using the intuitive push button and toggle operation; each function designated by a stylized icon. Steaming too, the DUO MN’s rosewood steam knob toggles on for powerful steaming, and flipping it up locks it into place for an uninterrupted stream.

  1. Klara Vogel

    Had this for 2 weeks and love it. The display is a little hard to get used to as it’s less responsive than a phone screen but the benefits of it completely outweigh this. It’s programmed for my schedule and ready to go when I am, maybe even more than I am. Built in reminders for backflushing and filter changes is great, also helps you realize how Read more about review stating Had this for 2 weeksmany shots you really pull in a week.
    Steam power is amazing, although in the 15amp mode the steam will run super low when trying to brew and steam. 20 amp outlet and wire is on the list to take full advantage of the machine.
    There aren’t many reviews for longevity or repairability which was really the only thing against this at the time of purchase. I watched the teardown on this from the HFC video list and it definitely set my mind at ease.

    The short answer: 100% satisfied. Since buying this machine, I have no desire to buy drinks at cafes any more. Unless it’s a top-tier specialty shop, I can tell that my drinks are better. The results are definitely better than my previous machines. When I taste pure espresso, it’s very often too bitter or too sour. The goal is to extract in-betweeRead more about review stating Best Choice for a Dual Boilern those two ranges, which is where the flavor comes out. The steamed milk hides bitterness and sourness, but the drink is far better when the espresso is brewed perfectly. That’s what a machine like this is all about… hitting that sweet spot, and delivering milk that’s perfectly steamed, without being just hot milk or stiff foam.

    I owned a Pavoni Europiccola, a Nespresso, and most recently a Breville espresso machine, and I wanted to upgrade. I wanted something which would create no-compromise espresso, with excellent milk steaming and high quality. I wanted the appearance of the Italian E61 machines. Still, I found that choosing among so many machines is difficult and confusing.

    The prices of the E61 machines were about $1,700 for a heat exchange model and about $2,500~$3,200 for a dual boiler. That’s a big difference, but the dual boiler machines offer a lot more: For starters, with a dual-PID, dual boiler, the espresso temperature is perfect. The two boilers hold a lot of water at the correct temperature, so the stability of those temperatures is outstanding. With a heat exchange machine, especially one like the Appartmento (which has no PID), you can get overheating or fluctuations.

    Another advantage with the dual boiler machines is that most of them have a rotary pump, which means they can be plumbed in. Not a big deal? Well, it’s a big deal if you’ve weighed/ground/distributed/tamped your shot and you run out of water in the middle of pulling that shot. And if you’ve ever spilled a drip tray of water on your kitchen floor, that’s also a big deal. It’s very nice if you can do it, like the convenience of an automatic ice maker/water dispenser in your fridge.

    If you’ve decided to take the plunge for a device at this level, there are a lot of choices, such as ECM Synchronika, Profitec, Crem, Rocket and Lelit Bianca. So why am I so happy with this one?

    First off, the Duo MN is considerably less expensive than all of the others, except for Profitec. Not only that, but the touchscreen display is unique and extremely useful. In fact, Bezzera uses this display system on their professional cafe models as well. Only by using this machine can you appreciate how much thought Bezzera put into this display system: While I’m pulling a shot, it’s a shot timer, and a big one at that. It also shows me both boiler temperatures and the pressure in real-time, and it shows me whether one of the boilers is heating or ready. You can tap either temperature to adjust the temperature and the pre-infusion time. I can also program the machine to wake and sleep on a schedule. The touchscreen feature is very underrated; it is fantastic. By the way, I operate this machine so that both boilers can heat simultaneously, which can draw over 15 Amps, but I’ve never had a problem. Although HARFAN COFFEE recommends recommends operating the boilers so that they heat separately (which you set with the touchscreen), the machine can recover faster with simultaneous operation. You just need a dedicated circuit, preferably a 20A circuit (15A is standard in most cases in the US).

    Having used this touchscreen, it is not a gimmick; it is very useful. Other advantages of this machine are the included wood accents; most brands charge even more for the wood accents. Overall, the construction quality and performance are fantastic. I’ve never had a machine that steams milk well, but this machine doesn’t just steam milk perfectly, it does it very fast; I can steam enough milk for a cappuccino in about ten seconds, and it’s perfect milk, I can make latte art with it… it’s much better than the milk frother I had before or the attachment I used with the Pavoni. If you haven’t steamed milk before, or if you failed at it before, you’ll find that with this machine, it’s very easy to get perfect milk every time.

    Lastly, some machines in this category (well… the Lelit Bianca) offer flow profiling. That is not a feature I’m interested in right now, but I might want it later if my skills improve. My understanding is that E61 machines can be upgraded to add the flow profiling feature, but I’m going to wait and possibly upgrade later. It’s still less expensive to buy this machine and add a flow profiling valve later.

    I’ve had my Bezzera Duo MN now for about a week. What an amazing machine, great design, very quiet with the rotary pump, quick to heat both boilers and produces great coffee. I like the “old style” E61 group head with the modern electronic gauges. I had a Breville dual boiler (BES920XL) since 2016 but had constant breakdowns and its now becoming dRead more about review stating Great Machine!ifficult to find replacement parts. I’m so pleased I’ve upgraded to the Bezzera Duo MN. I’m hoping for years of great coffee and no annoying breakdowns!

  4. Elsa Becker

    Awesome product! Produces the most amazing cups of coffee, espresso, and cappuccino. Plus La Bezzera is one of the oldest espresso brands out there….Dal 1901.

    Cheers for the amazing product!

    We have been using the Bezzera DUO MN now for more than 6 months now. Very impressed with the construction of the device, the quiet operation of its rotary pump, and the taste benefits of it’s dual boiler rather than the heat exchanger from our old machine. I pull 4 shots into my insulated cup every morning and head upstairs to work from home – itRead more about review stating What a shot?’s a great start to the day. I still need to invest the time necessary to plump the machine in – looking forward to not having to fill the reservoir and not having to empty the drain tray.

    I picked this specific Bezzera machine because of it’s classic construction (E-61 group head) and advanced electronics. The computer guided backwash procedure is very convenient – although after doing this for 18+ years on my previous Bezzera, not really needed – but nice to have.

    I ordered a silicone group gasket with the machine and I have to I don’t know why anyone would use a black rubber gasket ever if a silicone gasket is available. I need to order another one to have as a spare – just in case.
