At a Glance

Cafe quality espresso coffee brewing

PL42 produces really great espresso thanks to the use of commercial style components, excellent thermal stability, and proper un-pressurised baskets just like you would find on a commercial coffee machine. Both the brewing group and coffee filter-holder are manufactured from chromed brass to maximise heat retention and thermal stability - the proper brass boiler is mounted directly above the brewing group which contributes to the temperature stability required for making great espresso. This thermal stability is what ensures your espresso is extracted at just the right temperature to maximise flavour and consistency.

Powerful steam... with fine micro-foam

A proper 300 mL brass boiler combined with 1000 w heating power produces powerful dry steam. Excellent steam power combined with a single steam hole tip tuned to the 250 mL boiler size makes it possible to achieve a nice fine micro-foam for all your favourite specialty coffees.

Fast to heat

PL42 heats from cold to ready for making coffee in less than 5 minutes. In fact, the boiler will come up to temperature in 2 minutes, but you have to wait for the filter-holder to be nice and hot to ensure you make really great espresso. Heating from coffee mode into steam mode takes less than 90 seconds.

Grind fresh coffee for every cup

Improve your coffee making experience by using the freshest ground coffee for each cup - LELIT Anita features a quality built-in coffee grinder allowing you to grind fresh coffee for each espresso. LELIT Anita features the same quality grinding unit as the LELIT Fred PL043 coffee grinder. Featuring step-less adjustment, quality conical burrs, and doser-less design - the grinder allows you to refine you grind setting and then grind only the exact amount of coffee needed for for each cup. Fresh is best!

Compact elegant design

This coffee machine won't take up your whole kitchen, with a nice compact footprint it delivers great results while being easy to find space for. Smart clean lines, highly polished bodywork, and a brilliant quality of fit and finish; this is one appliance you will be proud to have on display in your kitchen.

Awesome build quality

LELIT espresso machines are renowned for their high quality of fit and finish. Where other manufacturers save money using steel and plastic, LELIT uses brass and stainless steel. You only have to see a LELIT machine to realise the quality of componentry, attention to detail, and superior quality finish. 

Built by people who are passionate about espresso

Hand assembled in Brescia, Italy; LELIT espresso coffee machines are built with passion, in the true Italian style. Unlike many of the traditional coffee machine manufacturers, LELIT are a young and innovative company with a huge focus on advancing the home espresso coffee machine market by delivering innovative products. It is these new product innovations, combined with quality components and a relentless focus on design that make LELIT espresso machines some of the very best available in the market.



- Home espresso coffee making


Quality cafe style espresso

Excellent thermal stability

The brew boiler is located directly over the brewing group to maximise temperature 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.

Chromed brass 57 mm filter-holder

A proper filter-holder constructed from chromed brass helps to maintain a nice stable brew temperature for perfect professional quality espresso. Heavy duty 57 mm chromed brass filter-holder allows you to extract espresso just like the professionals. LELIT Anita filter-holder has a double outlet and includes a range of coffee filter baskets to suit your requirements.

Brew extraction pressure gauge

A real asset when searching for the ultimate extraction, the brew extraction pressure gauge tells you under what pressure your espresso is being extracted. If the pressure is too high you can adjust your coffee grind to be more coarse; if the pressure is too low, you can adjust to a finer grind.

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 ground coffee once brewing is complete. The valve relieves brewing pressure from the filter-holder allowing you to remove the filter-holder immediately after brewing is complete - ready to make another espresso.

Powerful 15 bar ULKA vibration pump

Industry standard 15 bar ULKA vibration pump delivers pressurised water to the brewing system.

Factory calibrated Over-Pressure Valve

Factory calibrated Over Pressure Valve ensures the optimum extraction pressure is achieved for a smooth creamy espresso. Over-pressure valve regulates the pump pressure by returning excess pressure back to the water tank. Over-pressure valves help to prevent over-extraction of your espresso.

Manual Pre-Infusion

While the PL42 doesn't have any programmed pre-infusion control. You can pre-infuse the coffee by activating the pump switch for 1-2 seconds, then letting the coffee rest for a few seconds, before beginning to extract your espresso. This process delivers a small amount of water into the coffee before the full extraction pressure is applied. This pre-infusion creates are more even distribution of the ground coffee to improve espresso flow.

2-Cup and 1-Cup commercial style filter baskets

Included are 2-Cup and 1-Cup filter baskets for making espresso in the commercial style where you grind coffee freshly for each cup. This achieves the best quality espresso where the grind consistency, dose, and compression are optimised for perfect espresso.

ESE POD 1-Cup filter basket

You can make coffee using ESE coffee pods with the included special ESE POD filter basket.



Steam milk like the professionals

Powerful dry steam

Solid brass boiler delivers a nice powerful supply of steam. LELIT Anita has the capacity to steam nice velvety milk for around 4 cups before you should refill the boiler. The brass boiler construction combined with a 1000 w heating element maintains a powerful steam supply from start to finish. This is what sets this machine apart from cheaper and entry-level single boiler coffee machines.

Fast heat time

1000 w heating power and a relatively small 250 mL boiler size means this machine can deliver steam in less than 90 seconds. Once steam mode is engaged the boiler temperature ramps up to over 125 degrees. When steam is ready the blue temperature light illuminates; now the steam valve can be opened, and you can steam your milk.

Single hole steam tip for fine micro-foam

LELIT Anita includes a single hole steam tip designed to deliver a nice fine stream of superheated steam. Single hole steam tips are the best for small domestic espresso machines delivering a single strong high-pressure jet of steam to assist with creating that desired micro-foam.

Commercial-style steam arm with ball-joint for control

Ball-joint steam arm connection gives you three axis of movement making it easy to position your steam arm just how you want it for maximum control of your milk steaming.

Soft-close professional style steam valve

Teflon steam gasket provides an easy to operate and reliable steam seal.


Freshly ground coffee for every cup

Doser-less grinder for freshly ground coffee

Doser-less grinders are where the coffee world is heading. Doser-less design allows you to "grind on demand" just enought coffee for each cup - there is no doser where coffee can go stale. Grinding is controlled by pressing the filter-holder against the switch located below the coffee chute -  when sufficient coffee has been ground simply remove the  filter-holder to stop grinding.

38mm hardened steel burrs

PL043 features 38mm hardened steel conical grinding burrs designed specifically for fine espresso grind. 

Stepless adjustment for precise control

Stepless grind adjustment allows for an infinite number of settings for very precise control over the coffee grind. Grind setting is adjusted by rotating the dial on the side of the machine which raises and lowers the upper grinding burr. Each turn of the adjustment dial represents a very small grind adjustment.



Great functionality and ease of use

87 mm cup clearance for latte glasses

87 mm clearance between the drip tray and the centre of the filter-holder allows you to use two latte glasses at once. The distance between the drip tray and filter-holder outlet is 80 mm. Suitable for use with 220/250 mL Duralex cafe latte glasses, 8oz takeaway cups, or 227 mL regular size KeepCup.

Water level indicator

View the water level quickly and easily. Left-hand side of the machine has a cut-out allowing you to view the water level in the water tank.

Metal toggle switches for ease of use

Two front mounted metal toggle switches provide easy control of the machine function. One switch operates the pump, while the other has three positions for coffee, hot-water, and steam functions. The metal toggle switches are solid and reliable giving a nice positive feel. The on-off button is mounted on the rear of the machine.

Wide cup warmer

A large cup-warming surface located on the top of the machine holds up to 6 espresso cups or 2 latte/cappuccino cups and keeps them warm.

Large drip tray slides out for easy clean-up

The large drip tray can accommodate a generous amount of spent coffee water and slides out for easy cleaning.

Generous 2.7 L water tank

2.7 L water tank is enough for a large number of coffees, so you won't be filling it up every day. 


Stylish design with quality construction

Polished stainless-steel exterior

Polished stainless-steel construction for an attractive, durable, and long-lasting machine. 

High quality metal components

Switches, lids, and drip tray grill all manufactured from metal for durable and attractive finish. 

Superior finish
