Bianca is an espresso machine without compromises, with E61 group, manual control of the water flow and dual boiler.
It has been created for those expert baristas that know how to get the best out of every coffee.
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 visualizing 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.
the new espresso frontier
Bianca is the bright star among Lelit espresso machines. It's the crown jewel that allows the most expert barista to have a complete control on the espresso extraction during the manual variation of the water flow through the wooden paddle and to manage all the parameters through the LCC.
A long and constant pre-infusion
Bianca does not feature the mechanical preinfusion present in the traditional E61 group. This is achieved thanks to the use of the LCC and of the paddle, programming the times "pump on" and "pump off" and obtaining this way a constant preinfusion, for a much longer time.
Set the maximum pump pressure
To extract the best out of every coffee blend or roasting, every barista can decide to modify the setting of the pump (till maximum 12 bars) acting on the regulation screw. The pressure variation influences both the preinfusion and the paddle behaviour!
An extraction never seen before
The portafilter has a 58mm diameter, a wooden handle and a Coffee Slide, i.e. the spout that gently accompanies the coffee into the cup and actively helps the cream creation of the espresso. Progressive inclination, spout size and open surfaces are masterfully calibrated to get the best possible result.
Handles and paddle made of the finest wood
All the details in Bianca, such as the knobs, the portafilter handle and the paddle, are made of the finest walnut wood to give a pleasant tactile sensation and a high-quality aesthetical result.
