Lelit Anita - PL42TEMD
The Lelit Combi just got better with the Lelit Anita - PL42TEMD!
The Combi is a machine that we love here at Complete Cafe Services because of its great build quality, tiny footprint and built in grinder. Thanks to its factory installed dual mode PID the combi just got a whole lot better.
Featuring the same 250ml boiler from the PL42EMI the Combi PID (PL42TEMD) steps it up in the performance stakes. The PID allows you to control both the espresso brew temperature and the steam temperature. By varying the brew temperature you can optimize your shot to suit many single origin coffees, all of which have a different optimal brew temperature, allowing you to pull the true origin flavours out of a particular coffee. With the built in 9bar over pressure valve the Combi PID really optimizes your shot quality allowing you to pull the maximum amount of flavour out of your coffee time after time. Varying the steam temperature will also let you control how aggressively you steam your milk, making it easier to pull perfect micro foam for latte art, allowing you to further refine your home coffee drinking experience.
With its built in conical grinder this little machine would suit even the most discerning of coffee lovers.
There has been a noticeable improvement in steam strength on this model over older versions of the PL42. This makes all the difference when trying to achieve silky, creamy milk for cafe quality flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos.

So what is a PID you ask??? Proportional, Integral, and Derivative. Basically its a bunch of Algorithms used by the temperature controller to cycle the heater off and on quickly to provide just the right amount of heat to maintain temperature without overshooting.
*PLUS... We repair everything we sell on site and carry parts also.
Note. On the latest version of this machine, there is no built in plastic tamper. A quality, stainless steel hand tamper is highly recommended. Also, the ground coffee chute is stainless steel rather than plastic.
