At a Glance


Cafe quality espresso coffee brewing | the LELIT produces really great espresso due to the innovative design features and use of good quality components. The proper brass boiler is mounted directly above the brewing group which contribtes to the temperature stability required for making great espresso. Brewing is controlled by a three-way electrovalve just like you would find on a commercial espresso machine. 

Powerful steam... with fine microfoam | a proper boiler made from brass for superior steam production. Good steam power combined with a single steam hole tip makes it possible to achieve a nice fine velvety microfoam for all your favorite specialty coffees.

Pump pressure gauge | a real asset when searching for the ultimate extraction, the pump pressure gauge tells you under what pressure your espresso is being extracted. If the pressure is too high you could make your grind more coarse; if it is too low, you could make your grind finer.

LELIT Control Centre | LELIT control centre gives you valuable information about every aspect of your coffee brewing... allowing you to adjust both the brew temperature and steam temperature to suit your coffee style. Plus you get a programmable countdown timer so you can brew your espresso for exactly the right amount of time, every-time. The LCD display and two buttons on the front of the machine allows you to program brew temperature, steam temperature, brew time, plus switch pre-infusion on or off.

Ergonomic filter-holder with coffee slide | the filter-holder feautres a sloping ergonomic hangle that not only feels great to use, it sits flat and stable on the bench making it easy to tamp ground coffee into the handle. The coffee slide outlet helps to deliver the espresso in the much desired "mouse tail" to replicate the cafe experience at home.

Makes cafe quality espresso...


57mm saturated brass brewing group

The brew boiler is located directly over the brewing group to maximise temerature stability and ensure water travels the shortest path from boiler to your cup while remaining at the right temperature. Brewing group and boiler are constructed from brass to maximise temperature stability and keep your delicious espresso at the correct temperature.

Stable brew boiler temperature 

LELIT uses a PID tempertaure controller to keep the brew temperature within 1 degree. Unlike thermostat controlled machines which can have up to 10 degrees variation in brew water temperature; the PID on this machine keeps the water at the same temperature each and every time you make a coffee for more consistent results.

57mm chromed brass filter-holder with LELIT ergonomic handle

The new LELIT ergonomic handle feautres a sloping ergonomic hangle that not only feels great to use, it sits flat on the bench creating a stable tamping position. 

Coffee Slide

The new LELIT Coffee Slide filter-holder outlet lets the espresso flow at a shallower angle to enhance the desired "mouse tail" pour of the espresso.

Brew pressure gauge - with backlight

A real asset when searching for the ultimate extraction, the pump pressure gauge tells you under what pressure your espresso is being extracted. If the pressure is too high you could make your grind more coarse; if it is too low, you could make your grind finer.

Pre-Infusion

Pre-infusion deliverys a small amount of water into the coffee before the full extration pressure is applied to enhance the extraction of the coffee. Pre-infusions creates are more event distribition of the ground coffee to improve espresso flow. The coffee is wetted for a few seconds before brew pressure is applied allowing the coffee to begin brewing before extraction is started. Pre-infusion can be switched on of off using the Lelit Control Centre.

Adjustable brew temperature

Want your espresso extracted at a slightly higher or lower temperature? No problem... You can adjust the brew temperature above or below the standard 90 degrees to suit your taste and coffee variety. This is particularly useful if you want to experiment with single origin or other specialty coffees.

3-WAY brewing control valve

3-way solenoid valve is a commercial feature that not only directs the flow of water from the boiler to the brew group, but also relieves the water pressure off the coffee once brewing is complete. The valve dries out the used ground coffee in the filter-holder immediately after the brewing is finished. So you can straight away remove the handle, easily knock the dried coffee out and reset of the machine for another shot.

Powerful 15 bar ULKA vibration pump with Over Pressure Valve

Industry standard 15 bar ULKA vibration pump delivers pressurised water to the brewing system. Factory calibrated Over Pressure Valve ensures the optimum 9 bar extraction pressure is achieved for a smooth creamy espresso.
