Bezzera Aria PID Espresso Machine With Flow Control | Classic design
The Bezzera Aria is a compact heat exchanger espresso machine that comes equipped with a plumbable rotary pump, PID temperature controller, and E61 flow control device. Its impressive array of features make it a perfect choice for both experienced home baristas and espresso newcomers.
The Bezzera Aria is an attractive and featureful heat exchanger espresso machine, complete with a plumbable rotary pump, PID temperature controller and E61 flow control device. Added niceties like the double and bottomless portafilters, a true usable tamper and the updated design and branding show that Bezzera is paying close attention to features important to home baristas. Cut from the same cloth as machines like the BZ10, the Aria is still under 8 inches wide.
The Black version of the Bezzera Aria includes rosewood accented steam, hot water, and E61 lever knobs as well as rosewood handle portafilters.
Internally, the Aria houses a number of premium components that deliver both precision control and convenience. The standout feature is easily the NSF-certified Fluid-O-Tech rotary pump which is whisper-quiet when brewing and can achieve a max flow rate of 13.5g per second while brewing. The heat exchanger boiler has a 1.5L capacity and is made from copper, as is Bezzera’s preference. Temperature is regulated via a PID controller and can be adjusted in 1 degree increments. For added temperature stability, the boiler is fitted with a pair of eco brass endplates and wrapped in insulation.
On the exterior, the Aria’s housing features an attractive pattern of square cut-outs. The classic “Biscione” heraldry of Bezzera’s logo is as fierce as ever with a 3D textured design that roars with life on the back panel. The Aria uses a pair of joystick operated steam and hot water wands with spring-loaded valves that can be quickly tapped or locked in place depending on your preference.
While brewing, water flow from the pump to the group can be controlled via the E61 flow control device. Featuring a design unique to Bezzera machines, the oversized knob makes profiling flow simple and ergonomic, allowing you to repeat your desired extraction profiles with ease.
In the box, the Aria includes the following accessories:
Double Spout Portafilter, Bottomless Portafilter, 10g Single-Shot Basket, 20g Triple Shot Basket, Backflush Disc, Bezzera Logo Tamper and Drawstring Bag, E61 Flow Control Device Installation Kit, Water Level Sensor Cover, Group Cleaning Brush, Coffee Scoop
The Aria is a welcome addition to the Bezzera lineup, offering a fresh look and compelling features at an affordable price. With its compact frame it will fit in most kitchens, and the option to plumb adds greater quality of life to the user experience. When it comes to brewing espresso, the tag team of the PID controller and the flow control device give you the precision you need to tease the best out of each extraction while still pulling double duty on streaming thanks to the heat exchanger boiler.
The Aria comes standard with an E61 flow control device installed. With the valve, users can modify the flow rate of water in their group in real time to tailor custom extractions. Home baristas can experiment with both long low-flow pre-infusion and push the rate beyond stock flow for lever style extractions.
With a soft white PID display, the Aria allows you to adjust boiler temperature in 1 degree increments. Unique to Bezzera heat exchanger machines, the temperature displayed is the predicted brew water temperature. When brewing, the display converts to a timer, allowing you to keep a close eye on your extraction.
Housed in the same frame as the BZ10, BZ13, and Unica machines, the Aria inherits their narrow build while receiving a substantial upgrade in the form of a rotary pump. The whisper-quiet pump allows the machine to reach flow rates of up to 13.5g per second. For more permanent placement, the Aria can also be connected to a water supply.
Its updated Biscione logo and contemporary cut-out side panels imbue the Aria with a refreshing sense of modernity. The result is a timeless design that breaks from the mold of previous Bezzera machines without completely abandoning the Italian DNA they all share.
