Bezzera Unica Espresso Machine with Flow Control

Bezzera Unica Overview

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.

Features and Performance

Now, 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.

With the addition of flow control, you can have more control than ever over how you pull your shots. By changing the flow of the water to your portafilter, you can customize your preinfusion for perfectly saturated pucks and experiment with different flow profiles to match your taste preferences.

    This is my first home espresso machine, so in some ways it’s been a battle of wills so far. I don’t think this would traditionally be considered an entry-level machine, but I didn’t want to be buying another machine in a year or two.
    Dialing in all the variables (grind size, tamping pressure, amount, etc) has taken some time, but it’s given mRead more about review stating High learning curve for great espressoe a new appreciation for how hard it can be to make a great cup of espresso. All that said, this is a 5-star review: the Unica is GREAT. It is very elegant in presentation, but a real workhorse, with tight fitting metalwork, an easy-to-clean drip tray, and handles which are both stylish and strong. I am so happy with this machine, and I fully expect it to be in my household for a decade or more.

    Spent a lot of time researching these machines; yes they are machines, and one can go crazy figuring out which one to get. With the help of many video reviews from this site and others along with HFC customer service I knew where I was going to buy my machine. Zeroed in a single chamber since we were focused on espresso. I added the wood accents aRead more about review stating First prosumer machinend this thing looks like a nice device on the bar even when not in use. Read the manual first! Also purchased the Baratza 270Wi to compliment the machine. Still trying to dial in all the variables with PID temps; grinder settings; types of beams. I may never get there but getting close is the fun part. Add in the ice cream for an Affogato, forget about it…

    I almost gave this machine 4 stars but any pitfalls are me as the operator. It heats up super quick – 5 minutes for boiler temp and the portafilter needs just 10 seconds or so of running water to heat up if you don’t want to wait. The large water reservoir is a plus. Looks are a big plus. Where it almost loses a star is the milk frothing. I knew gRead more about review stating Solid machine, good bang for the buckoing into it the single boiler would be a little more work making milk drinks, it has convinced me to buy a dual boiler or heat exchanger the next time around. It’s a mild inconvenience and that aside the steaming is powerful and yields great results.

    After a ton of research, I settled on the Bezzera Unica. I’m glad I did. While my Gaggia Classic pulls a lovely shot, it’s nothing compared to my new Bezzera, which thus far has been consistent. And since I generally just pull shots for espresso, the single boiler is ideal. It’s well-made, stunningly gorgeous, and at this price point, one of the fRead more about review stating Gorgeous Machineew machines that comes with a PID. HarfanCoffee was great in the ordering process as well. After I received my new Bezzera and realized the wrong drip grate had been included, they quickly sent out the right one. Super happy customer here.
