Now with its improved PID, ability to program preinfusion and flow rates, the V3 has become one of the most user-friendly prosumer machines on the market today. Even the least-experienced users will love this machine.
Is it for me?
The Lelit Bianca V3 Dual Boiler Espresso Machine is not for everyone and can certainly be considered overkill if you're only making 1-2 drinks a day. If you're looking for all the features at the best value, then look no further.
Opinion of our experts:
The Lelit Bianca V3 espresso machine is a high-end coffee machine designed for both home and commercial use. It features two boilers, a PID temperature controller, an E61 group head, and a professional steam wand. The dual boilers provide better temperature control, while the PID temperature controller allows for precision brewing temperature adjustments. The E61 group head is a commercial-grade design that is known for its heat stability and improved brewing performance. The professional steam wand provides more power and control for frothing milk. The Lelit Bianca V3 also has a more compact and modern design compared to previous models. With its advanced features and improved performance, the Lelit Bianca V3 is a top choice for coffee aficionados and baristas.
Perhaps our favorite feature is the moveable water tank. Customers usually place the machine under kitchen cabinets; if not connected to water lines, the reservoir must be filled manually. The water reservoir can be fitted to sit on either side of the machine to avoid this problem and is an awesome feature.
It's commercial-grade rotary pump is quiet, consistent, and will make plumbing your machine in easy (optional). Combine all that with PID, stainless steel boilers, and a shot timer, the Lelit Bianca V3 Dual Boiler Espresso Machine truly has everything you need - and more!

- Improved steam wand: The V3 features an updated steam wand with a more ergonomic design and better insulation, making it easier to use and reducing the risk of burns.
- Updated PID control: The V3 uses an updated PID control system for improved temperature stability and accuracy.
- 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 new power modes: The V3 now has four power modes - Always on, sleep mode, standyby, and ecomode.
- Dual pressure gauges: The V3 has two pressure gauges that show the pressure in both the coffee and steam boilers.
- Updated group head design: The V3 has an updated group head design with a new shower screen and gasket, which helps to distribute water more evenly and improve extraction.
- Improved build quality: The V3 has a more robust build quality with high-quality materials and improved insulation, which helps to reduce heat loss and improve overall performance.
What is pre-infusion?
Pre-infusion is a technique used in espresso extraction that involves wetting the coffee grounds with a small amount of water before applying full pressure to extract the espresso shot. During pre-infusion, the water is slowly and gently introduced to the coffee grounds, allowing them to absorb the water and expand before pressure is applied to extract the shot.
Pre-infusion can help to improve the consistency and quality of espresso shots by promoting even extraction and reducing the risk of channeling (where water finds a path of least resistance through the coffee puck). By allowing the coffee to bloom and absorb water more evenly, pre-infusion can help to create a more uniform coffee bed, resulting in a more balanced and flavorful espresso shot.
Many espresso machines, including the Lelit Bianca V3 Dual Boiler Espresso Machine, offer pre-infusion as a programmable feature. With pre-infusion, you can experiment with different pre-infusion times and pressures to customize your espresso shots and achieve your desired flavor profile.
Yes. The PID doubles as a shot timer to help you time your shots to perfection.

The Lelit Bianca V3 Dual Boiler Espresso Machine is designed to be user-friendly and easy to use, with intuitive controls and a clear display.
To make espresso, you simply grind your coffee beans, tamp them into the portafilter, and insert the portafilter into the group head. The machine's PID controller allows you to easily adjust the temperature and pressure for optimal extraction, and the flow profiling feature lets you customize the flow rate during extraction for even more control over your shots.
As for cleaning, the machine features a removable drip tray and water reservoir for easy cleaning and maintenance. The steam wand is designed to be easy to clean, with a no-burn steam arm and a removable tip for easy cleaning.
