Forget the Rancilio Silvia "Expensive to repair". Forget the Via Venezia "Lacks Steam Pressure" TAKE a LOOK at the Lelit "PL41TEMD" it will blow you away.
The Lelit PL41TEMD is a powerhouse of a small machine. This machine is the backbone of the Lelit range with a sowerfu; 250ml boiler that is capable or producing very stable shots and produces a huge amount of steam when needed. Coupled with a PID control unit giving you complete control over the thermal parameters of the shot the PL41TEMD becomes a great little enthusiast machine allowing you tro pull the maximum amount of flavour out of your coffee for any given roast. Coupled with its 9Bar Over Pressure Valve this machine produces consistent pressure helping extract the best out of your coffee without becoming too bitter.
We love this machine because it:
The Lelit PL41TEMD is a good quality Italian espresso machine capable of making cafe quality coffee at home. The built in PID temperature controller ensures stable brew water temperature which is vital for great tasting espresso. The PID also controls the steam pressure to ensure strong, consistent steam. The stainless steel and brass construction ensures a long service life.
The PL41TEMD has a 3 way valve so that the group handle can be immediately removed after brewing. This valve also allows the machine to be backflushed. This feature makes the machine easy to use and easy to clean.
The Lelit PL41TEMD has a built in brew pressure gauge which shows whether the brew pressure is optimal. (Too little pressure indicates an under extraction, too much pressure indicates an over extraction). The gauge will also indicate when maximum pressure is reached while backflushing - so that you know when to turn the pump off.
For the first time on a Lelit model, the PL41TEMD has a true 9BAR OPV fitted. This ensures the brew is at the optimal pressure so that bitter coffee does not result as a consequence of high brew pressure. This pressure will be able to be read off the brew pressure gauge when extracting a shot.

Well having a Delongi in my truck for a long period of time I thought it would be a good idea to get a better machine. I chose this machine due to the existing space I had. It fits perfectly. I have no doubt that this machine will give me a better coffee but it's just early days as I have just fitted it in. Very happy with the service that's been delivered and the recent phone calls. I highly recommend them
