The Bianca uses the tried and tested E61 group, renowned for its superior temperature stability, durability and ease of use. For the Bianca, Lelit modified the E61 to add a paddle-controlled flow profiler. This enables home baristas to change the flow rates dynamically throughout the extraction for maximum control over extraction pressure and eventually the flavour of the drink.
In addition to being housed in a stainless steel case, Lelit added to the Bianca's stylish, retro Italian look by fitting it with knobs, a paddle and a portafilter handle from walnut wood
The Bianca features an advanced PID system called the LCC or Lelit Control Centre. This PID controller is capable of much more than just setting the precise temperatures on the boilers. It also features timed preinfusion, a shot timer and a low water level alert. The LCC can also be used to shot off the steam boiler to conserve energy when using the machine for just espresso. A dual pressure gauge on the Bianca displays both the boiler pressure and pump pressure.
A dual boiler espresso machine, The Bianca has dedicated boilers for brewing and steaming. This translates to exceptional temperature stability when brewing coffee as well as the ability to brew coffee and steam milk simultaneously.
The Bianca includes 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.
