The time has come and the Lelit Bianca V2 has sold out and is now no more. On to bigger, better, and more efficient things - the V3!

Coming late June, early July - the Lelit Bianca V3 has some pretty cool upgrades that we're excited to try out soon.

Software Upgrades:

Low flow start

This function refers to the time slot from 0 until whatever the user sets. The Lelit Bianca V3's paddle movements have been adjusted so less experienced users can easily operate the machine without having to pay attention to the extraction from start-to-finish.

Low flow final

Low flow final refers to the time from what the user sets until the end of espresso extraction.

Stand by mode

After 30 minutes of inactivity, the Lelit Bianca V3 will automatically go into stand-by mode. When this happens the on/off light will blink.

Warm up optimization

The newly designed PID on the Lelit Bianca V3 minimizes the time it takes for the machine to heat up. 

Brewing temperature offset

From Lelit:

This value is a sort of fourth value of the PID. It was introduced to correct the foreseen thermal error during brewing. When brewing a cup of coffee, the machine dispense water hence cold water is introduced in the hydraulic circuit and the boiler. Cold water messes up with the thermic of the machine. This is when the brew temperature offset is needed. In fact, during brewing, the software changes the set point by increasing or decreasing the temperature of the chosen offset – range values ± 25°C. In this way the user has an additional value he can use to personalise his brewing profile.

Upgrades to the PID (LCC)

Programmable low flow times

From Lelit:

We would like to underline the most significant improvement of the machine: the LOW FLOW. In Bianca V3 we automatised the paddle movements which has two main advantages for LELIT users:

  • The machine can be easily operated also by less expert users, as they do not have to pay particular attention to the coffee brewing.
  • For the more expert users, this upgrade means that the pressure and flow profile can be precisely repeated multiple times. This does not mean that the paddle becomes useless, but it can be used in addition to the setting of Low flow.

Four power modes

Always on

Available when the user disables stand-by mode and sleep mode. This means that the machine will always be ON.

Sleep mode

After a set time (from 40 to 540 minutes), the Lelit Bianca V3 brings the coffee boiler's temperature down significantly and the steam boiler down to 0 degrees. 


Steam boiler is always OFF.

Stand-by mode

After 30 minutes of inactivity, the steam and coffee boilers and PID are turned OFF. This is a factory setting.
