Lelit Bianca is an espresso machine that doesn't compromise on quality. It features an e61 group with manual control of water flow and two separate boilers: one for steam and hot water delivery, and another for coffee extraction. This system ensures exceptional temperature stability and allows for simultaneous coffee and steam delivery. Bianca, the shining star among Lelit's espresso machines, grants expert baristas complete control over the espresso extraction. With manual water flow variation through the wooden paddle and comprehensive parameter management via the Lelit Control Center (LCC), you can achieve the perfect results for any coffee blend.
Bianca introduces an innovative paddle directly mounted on the e61 group, controlling the water flow through a needle. By rotating the paddle, you can gradually adjust the water flow inside the group until reaching the optimal pressure. This manual control allows for precise management of each phase of the coffee extraction, ensuring exceptional results in the cup with every type of coffee blend.
The Lelit LCC control center empowers you to fine-tune various machine parameters. Regulate temperature for coffee extraction, adjust steam delivery, set pre-infusion times, manage standby periods, enable or disable the steam boiler, monitor partial and total doses, and even choose between Celsius or Fahrenheit temperature display. Bianca enables experienced baristas to achieve a consistent, long pre-infusion, which is crucial for excellent espresso extraction, even with challenging coffees or blends.
Bianca features Lelit's patented coffee slide filter holder, boasting a 58mm diameter, a sloping wooden handle, and a spout designed to gently guide the coffee into the cup while actively enhancing crema creation. The carefully crafted inclination, spout design, and open surfaces work together to achieve the best possible results. Every detail, including the knobs, portafilter handle, and paddle, is meticulously crafted from premium walnut wood, providing a pleasant tactile experience and a touch of refined aesthetics. Bianca's feet are also made of the same wood as other machine details and are height-adjustable, ensuring exceptional stability on any surface and facilitating water drainage when directly plumbed.
The appliance body and water tray are made of polished stainless steel, the epitome of durability. Bianca's new wands are designed to stay cool to the touch, preventing burns and featuring an improved geometry for easier cleaning and a more enjoyable user experience. Whether you prefer a double Italian espresso without pre-infusion or want to experiment with pre-infusion settings, Bianca allows you to achieve a well-balanced coffee flavor tailored to your personal preferences. The LCC programming enables precise control over the pre-infusion process, resulting in a significant difference in the final cup, even with the same coffee blend. This uniqueness is what sets Bianca apart, making it a favorite among professional baristas and those who seek to create a truly personalized espresso experience.
