Introducing the PL162T Bianca from Lelit, their newest, double boiler machine. With the Bianca, Lelit continues to outdo themselves and now lead the industry with the widest range of prosumer models. It packs some of the best technology that will make any barista jump for joy.

Not only does the machine include a PID double boiler, for those who are looking to experiment with pressure profiling seeking the Holy Grail; but, sitting on top of the legendary E61 grouphead is a wooden paddle that allows the user to manually adjust the brew pressure as the espresso shot is extracting! No need to pre-program it with fingers-crossed that your flavor profile will be to your liking. You have the control, right at your fingertips with a brew pressure readout at the group!

The Bianca has a water reservoir that can be re-positioned on either side of the machine to suit your needs and your counter-top. Don’t want a tank? No worries! The Bianca can be directly plumbed in too (even the drip tray can be drained!) All of these features are encased in a stainless steel body, accented by wooden handles, feet, and lever.

Customers can make an appointment to see the machine in action.

Features:

Control Brew Pressure on the Fly!
The wooden paddle and brew pressure gauge mounted on top of the grouphead allows full manual control over the brew pressure as you are pulling your shot of espresso. Play with flavor profiles to your hearts content!

Pick a side, any side!
Have you ever seen an espresso machine that gives you a choice where to put the water reservoir? The Bianca does! Even better, it also has the option to be directly plumbed in, including the drip tray.

Wooden Handled Bottomless Portafilter
3-cup bottomless portafilter with smooth wodden handle included with the machine.

E61 Grouphead
The E61 grouphead ensures consistent water stability. Hot water circulates from the boiler through the grouphead and back. The result? The grouphead and your portafilter stays nice and hot, especially important to get a nice shot of espresso. A lever next to the grouphead easily activates the pump to draw water through the coffee grinds.

Built with Quality Materials
On the outside, the Bianca shines with stainless steel body polished to a mirror finish(subject to change on final version). And in the inside, it has two insulated stainless steel boilers with copper tubing connecting the boilers to the grouphead or valves.

Wooden Elements
Less plastic is always a bonus in our eyes. In addition to the portafilter handle being crafted out of wood, the Bianca also has wooden accents on steam / hot water knobs, lever, wooden paddle, and feet!

PID and Dual Pressure Gauge
Lelit adds their sophisticated PID system, that allows timed preinfusion, a reference timer, and a low-water level alert. A dual-pressure gauge on the other side of the machine measures both the boiler pressure (0-4 bar) on top and pump pressure (0-16 bar) on the bottom.

Multi Directional Steam and Hot Water Wand
Allows for more flexibility. Rosette-style knobs control the separate steam and hot water wands, which are multi directional. The steam wand comes with a 2 hole steam tip.

Three Way Solenoid Valve
Allows quick removal of portafilter after espresso extraction by relieving the pressure built up in the grouphead. The result is a dry puck of coffee you can easily knock out of the portafilter.

Rotary Vane Pump and Motor
Produces a quieter extraction than a vibratory vane pump. Situated underneath tank / reservoir, so adjustments can be made from underneath the espresso machine.

Adjustable OPV
Adjustable over pressure valve – top cover and upper body panel need to be removed to adjust.
