Lelit - Bianca PL162T
The Bianca has some very nice features, the water tank option is my favourite, many people want to put their machine in the kitchen under a fitted cabinet. With the common top water fill machines this is a big issue as you don't have enough space. With the Bianca the water tank is removable and can be moved to either side of the machine. Whats even better is if you then decide to plumb the machine in to the mains water supply you can completely remove the water tank. The people at Lelit are real innovators!
Watch this video and see what this fella has to say about the Bianca.
Repositionable water tank with automatic coupling
Bianca's water tank is seated in the stainless steel external "backpack" to avoid a possible heating up of the water temperature. It can be repositioned on each of the three sides of the machine to better adapt itself to the available space. It can be easily removed to allow an easy cleaning.
Measure the real extraction pressure
Thanks to the manometer on the E61 group you can measure the real pressure on the coffee puck having a much more precise and accurate control of the coffee extraction.
Complete portafilter with 1 shot and 2 shots filters, bottomless portafilter with 18/20 g filter, blind filter, 70 L water softener, Lelit stainless steel tamper with aluminium handle, group cleaning brush, microfiber cloth, optional steam wand nozzle, accessories for direct water plumbing, espresso cup rack and coffee measuring spoon.
Stainless steel appliance body and parts (water tray)
The appliance body and the water tray are made in polished AISI 304 stainless steel, the king of all materials, to grant an unlimited lifetime, a superior aesthetic look and an easy cleaning.
Anti-burn/cool cool touch wands
The new Lelit wands are all cool touch, to avoid any burn and have a new geometry to facilitate cleaning, avoid the limestone formation and allow a more satisfying use experience.
Bianca's feet are made of the same wood of all the other machine details and are adjustable in height. This allows a great stability on any surface and, in case of direct plumbing, allows the machine inclination to facilitate the water drain.
Bianca is equipped with a sophisticated energy saving system that allows programming the stand-by time, after which the steam boiler is disabled. The coffee boiler maintains a temperature of 70° C and the efficiency of the warming cup surface is kept at 80%. The machine returns in the full energy modus in just 10 minutes, granting this way a significant energy saving.
A super-performing machine like Bianca must be able to adapt to the different working conditions and to the different extraction needs of each barista.
To obtain this result, Bianca is equipped with a technical submenu, where you can customize the settings, such as the PID parameters that determine the thermoregulation.
