With the Bianca, Lelit has combined the tried and trusted E-61 group with innovative manual control of water flow into the group with a paddle.
Created for expert home-baristas who want to get the best out of every bean, cup and roast of coffee.
Separate boilers for steam production and for espresso production. Not only can you perform both functions simultaneously but you have full control over the temperature of each boiler.
The Bianca features the extremely well known and widely used E61 group head. The E61 is known for its temperature stability, durability and ease of use.
PID and Dual Pressure Gauge
The Bianca is equipped with Lelit's sophisticated PID system - called the LCC or the Lelit Control Centre, that features timed preinfusion, a reference timer, and a low-water level alert. A dual-pressure gauge on the other side of the machine measures both the boiler pressure (0-4 bar) on top and pump pressure (0-16 bar) on the bottom.
Movable Water Tank
The Bianca features an external and movable water tank that can be positioned on either side of the machine. having a water tank detached from the machine this way allows for the water in the tank to not heat up even after the machine has been on for hours.
Quiet operation and robust performance. The Bianca can be run as a pour over machine using the included 2.5 litre water tank or it can be directly plumbed into your water main.
Stainless Steel Boiler
Both boilers in the machine are made out of stainless steel and not copper. Steel is a more robust material and is not susceptible to oxidization or corrosion.
No Burn Steam & Hot Water Wands
The machine is equipped with no burn steam and hot water wands that can be manipulated without worry about scolding your hands. Also, milk doesn't stick to a dual-walled steam wand as much as to a regular.
In addition to the portafilter handle wood crafted, the Lelit Bianca also has wooden accents on steam and hot water knobs, lever, wooden paddle and feet. An additional feature of the wooden paddle on top of the group head is that it diffuses the heat that builds upon the group head.
The Bianca comes 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%. When required, the machine returns in the full energy modes in just 10 minutes, offering this way a significant energy saving.
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.
The machine body and the drip tray are made with polished AISI 304 stainless steel, the king of all materials, that means a long life for the machine, a superior aesthetic look and easy cleaning.
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.

The machine returns in the full energy modus in just 10 minutes, granting this way a significant energy saving.
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.
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.
New Software in 2020 Model
The new 2020 model comes with brand new software on the LCC (the Lelit Control Centre) PID display. Improvements include:
- The abililty to disable the steam boiler with just one touch
- The ability to turn economy mode on or off
- The ability to switch to and from standby mode
- Displaying when the reservoir is out of water
- Displaying the steam boiler temperature
- Displaying real coffee extraction temperature
- The shot timer now displays for 20 seconds after ending extraction
