Lelit Bianca Dual Boiler Espresso Machine V3
Bella Barista is the premium UK retailer for Lelit coffee machines. We also stock all genuine Lelit parts and authorised Lelit service centre.
The Bianca is the flagship domestic espresso machine from Lelit. Since the Bianca launch in 2018 it has fast become one of the best selling dual boiler espresso machines here at Bella Barista.
The Lelit Bianca allows you to brew espresso and steam milk at the same time and offers exceptional value for money considering its features and build quality. The independent review (Link Below) by DaveC below is well worth reading if you're considering purchasing this espresso machine for home.
NEW FEATURES FOR V3
• Hot water and steam taps with LELIT logo embossed and visible from above. They are longer than the former ones, therefore the wands will not touch the body of the machine, preventing any possible scratch. This element was already present in LELIT Bianca V2.
• IMS filters made of AISI 304 stainless steel: 1 dose (9-11 g), 2 doses (16-18 g), 2 doses PLUS (18-21 g), blind. This element was already present in LELIT Bianca V2.
• Water tank with LELIT logo embossed. This element was already present in LELIT Bianca V2.
New software - We have updated the software operating the machine. This has allowed us to introduce the new Low flow function, the stand-by mode and the warm-up optimization.

B The temperature of the steam dispensed.
C Steam boiler enabling/disabling.
D Selection of the temperature unit measure.
E Programmable pre-infusion times.
F Programmable low flow times.
G Sleepy mode enabling/disabling.
H Partial and total doses counter.
I Chronometer of the coffee dispensing.
Stand-by mode After 30 minutes of inactivity, the machine will go automatically in stand-by mode. The ON/OFF light blinks.
Low flow START which refers to the time slot from 0 till what the user sets.
Low flow FINAL which refers to the time slot from what the user sets till the end of coffee brewing.
Brew temp off set This value either increases or decreases the coffee boiler temperature during coffee brewing, changing the temperature of the water coming out of the grouphead.

THE LELIT BIANCA IS AN ESPRESSO MACHINE WITHOUT COMPROMISES: AN LELIT L58E GROUP HEAD, MANUAL CONTROL OF THE WATER FLOW AND DUAL BOILER WITH PID
Latest Lelit Bianca VersionInstant 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! In fact, the boiler and boiler safety valve for 3 bar allow increases on the version 1 espresso machines.

- ADJUSTABLE FEET
- ENERGY SAVING
Rotating it, you gradually vary the water flow inside the group until the highest pressure is reached. This way you can manually control every single phase of the coffee extraction to obtain the best possible result in the cup with every type of coffee blend.
It allows to control all the machine parameters, such as the temperature regulation for the coffee extraction and steam delivery, the pre-infusion times, the stand-by times, the possibility of enabling or disabling the steam boiler, the partial and total doses counter and the possibility of visualising the temperature in °C or °F.
Two separate boilers, one for steam and hot water delivery and one for the coffee extraction. A system studied to grant a higher temperature stability and to allow the simultaneous delivery of coffee and steam.
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.
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.
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.
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.
