Bezzera BZ10: Setup Guide Video

Congratulations on your new Bezzera BZ10 Espresso Machine. Watch our setup video below on this heat exchanger espresso machine to help you get started.


Step One: Inspect the Box and the Machine for Damage

  • Remove the machine from the box. We always recommend saving all of the internal packing materials.
  • Set your machine on a stable, level surface and inspect it for damage. If you happen to notice any damage, please contact us right away.

Step Two: Water Quality and Filling your Reservoir

  • Before we introduce any water to your machine, it’s important to test it to ensure it’s adequately soft. 
  • Use the included water test strips to verify the hardness of your water.
  • Ideally, we’re looking for a water hardness around 50ppm
  • To learn more about our recommendations for water quality, visit or click the link in the description of this video,
  • Once you’ve checked to make sure your water is perfectly softened and filtered, it’s just about time to fill the machine’s reservoir.
  • Verify the water intake lines sit at the bottom of the water tank and fill the machine’s reservoir.

Step Three: Filling your Boilers and Turning on your Machine

  • Plug in your machine and turn on the power switch
  • Right away, the machine will automatically start filling and heating the boiler.
  • After waiting about 10-15 minutes, you’re ready to pull your first shots. With coffee in your portafilter, lock it into the group head and flip the shot switch. Once you’ve reached your desired weight or volume, flip the switch again to stop the pump.
