  • Oscar Vs Ponte Veccho Vs Bezzera BZ07

    Hi guys - looking to buy an office machine and have (kind of) narrowed my options down to these 3
    As i see it

    Oscar - Cheapest, Ugliest, ? build quality,
    Ponte Vecchio - Reasonably priced, ? build quality, Lever (not sure if this is a +'ve or -'ve for me)
    Bezzera - Most expensive, Most attractive, Likely best resale, Excellent build quality.

    Looks isn't critical as it is an office and not a home machine
    Usage is likely to be just me, or me and one or two others
    I have a Macap M4 so grinder is covered.

    I have a bezzera magica at home so am familiar with HX machines - and am very happy with it.

    I would appreciate thoughts/input

    PV would seem a little "eccentric" for a multi user office machine..unless you are all lever enthusiasts ?
    In the BZ07 price range , you have a lot of options.
    Have you considered the Bezzera BZ 10 ?
    ...its closer to the Oscar price , functionally the same as the BZ07 but with a better layout and dual pressure gauges.
    Maybe even the cheaper BZ 99 with its volumetric shot selection. ?
    etc..

      I would throw in the Lelit PL60T dual boiler as another option.

      Sniff

          BZ35 is plumbed with rotary pump
          They do a volumetric BZ99 tank m/c for sure (BZ99DE )

            I am not that keen on the lelit - would rather jump to the bezzera at that price point - as far as the lever is concerned - the machine is purchased for me - I may allow others to use it (if I like them and they respect my equipment :-P) but the priority is that it meets my needs. I like the lever concept Arabs the apparently forgiving nature of the ponte vecchio but was a touch concerned re build quality and longevity.
