    Bianca by Lelit

    Bianca is beautiful in design and what she produces!

    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.

    Version 2 Upgraded Features, as of 1/20/2020!

    Instant Stand-By Sleep Mode

    By holding the plus and minus button simultaneously for three seconds on the LCC display, the machine will go into sleep mode. Please note the LCC must have sleep mode turned ‘on’ in the menu for 30, 60…up to 540 minutes. This is just a quick way to get the machine into standby mode where the coffee boiler is maintained at 80 degrees C and the steam boiler is turned off.

    Reserve Mode for Water Reservoir

    The machine can perform the espresso extraction while the water level is low in the reservoir. Also, if the water level in the reservoir is just above the low water indicator, the extraction will continue for 60 seconds after the LCC indicator shows low water. Thus, this will save the espresso shot!

    Instant Economy Mode for Powering Coffee Boiler Only

    By holding the minus button for three seconds, users can deactivate the steam boiler and maintain the programmed temperature of the coffee boiler.

    Actual Boiler Temperature Display

    Press the LCC plus button on the right side ONCE quickly and hold to see the current coffee boiler temperature. Press the LCC plus button TWICE and hold quickly to see the actual steam temperature.

    Shot Clock Timer Display Delay

    At the end of extraction, the shot clock time will continue to show on the LCC for 20 seconds.

    Steam Temperature
    • The maximum steam boiler temperature increased from 125 degrees C to 135 degrees C (266 degrees F to 275 degrees F).
    • The minimum steam boiler temperature on both V1 and V2 are consistently 115 degrees C (239 degrees F).
    • No change is necessary for the safety valve on the steam boiler!

    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 wooden 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.  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.

    Quick Portafilter Removal

    With the lever on the side of the grouphead brought to the down position, the brew pressure is relieved in the portafilter so it can be quickly removed and refilled. The result is a usually a dry puck of coffee to be knocked out. If not, there may be too much space (too little coffee) in the basket, or an inconsistent/too fine a coffee grind.

    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.

    OPV (Overpressure Valve)

    The OPV is set by Lelit to open at 12 bar of brew pressure. Although adjustable, it is strongly recommended not to adjust the OPV because the paddle on the grouphead is adjusts the pressure at the grouphead. In addition, it is set at 12 bar so as to not allow the water if the coffee boiler to exit and cause potential damage to the heating element from a lack of water. If the maximum brew pressure needs to be lowered, it is best to adjust the adjustment screw on the rotary vane pump.
