The Lelit PL41LEM is an excellent quality, Italian made espresso machine. This version of the Lelit PL41 is the newest version. Improvements over older models include:
- a brew pressure gauge,
- 9BAR over pressure valve (OPV). Older models have a 10.5BAR OPV,
- increased steam pressure - a *big* improvement over older models, and
- durable metal toggle switches for a great modern look
The PL41LEM 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 PL41LEM 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.
There has been a noticeable improvement in steam strength on this model over older versions of the PL41. This makes all the difference when trying to achieve silky, creamy milk for cafe quality flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos.
The PL41LEM 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. (Older models have a higher pressure OPV)
This machine is fantastic value when you consider it:
- is made in Italy,
- is constructed from quality materials, and
- makes fantastic coffee - have a look at the video below (shows PL42EM which is the same as the PL41LEM internally but with the addition of a PL43MM grinder built in)

Lasting the test of timeBy: Ben on 8 February 2021I've been pumping out upto 8 coffees most days with this little wonder for almost 6 years and it's still going strong. I bought it for its good looks, simple use and petite size, ideal for my limited kitchen bench space! Suitable for pulling upto 4x singles or 2x doubles on a single run, it's quick and easy to maintain and clean. The only minor repair in all this time was to replace the steam tap rod about 6 months ago, which was an easy DIY with parts bought from Jetblack espresso. For longevity, good looks, great coffee and price, you can't beat it.
Lelit works wellBy: Leigh on 14 October 2020I purchased the basic Lelit machine as a replacement for my great old Gaggia classic. It took a bit of effort to dial the Lelit in but I'm now very happy with the shots I'm pulling. Pluses = easy to clean with blind filter included for back flushing, pressure gauge is very useful, solid build including metal switches, reasonable warm up time of 10 minutes, the steamer is very good for texturing milk at the price. Only negative is the 57mm portafilter which I don't like at all! Pity that they went with that choice as this machine would go from very good to great with that one change.
Great lil machineBy: Matt on 31 August 2020If you want cafe quality coffee from a cheaper machine this is one to get. Easy to use and the coffee’s are sensational. Also it looks pretty damn good!

LELIT PL41LEM ESPRESSO MACHINEBy: Giant_Evertonian on 9 June 2017My previous machines were the lower end Brevilles which made surprisingly good coffee for the relatively low cost of the machine. I decided it was time to crank things up a notch and did some research on machines around the $800-$1000 mark. That research popped up the unknown (to me) Lelit brand espresso machines. I watched videos and read endless reviews before pulling the trigger and purchased the PL41LEM. I know in the big scheme of things $800+ isn't a huge amount to spend on an espresso machine but it's a fair old wedge of cash to myself and I'm sure many other people. I got it home read the somewhat confusing instructions. Instructions that I suggest you read to minimise any issues in potentially damaging the boiler. I'm not going to lie in all honesty it wasn't as easy as the videos to pull a shot with sky high crema but patience, practise and some tweaking of my grinder have thankfully been rewarded! I am now pulling really great tasting shots from this little machine. It's right up there if not better than some of the coffee shops I go to and I'm in cafes a lot! I'm stoked to be honest and my initial fears of "what have I done" have now well and truly been thrown in the bin. The steamer is also very impressive and super quick unlike my previous machines which took an age to froth milk. So if you're looking for a quality machine that doesn't take over your entire kitchen bench top and isn't going to have you taking out a second mortgage then pop the Lelit PL41LEM on your list to check out. I'm certainly not regretting my purchase and I'm sure you won't be either.
