The Lelit Combi with PID (model PL042TEMD) combines a good quality Italian espresso machine with a burr grinder and PID temperature controller to give you everything you need to make cafe quality coffee at home. The built in PID temperature controller maintains the correct brew temperature and allows fine tuning for different coffee beans. It also controls the steam power to ensure there is enough steam to properly texture milk. The brew pressure gauge shows whether you are brewing at the optimal pressure. The Lelit Combi has earned it's place as one of the best value Italian made espresso machines, and now it comes with factory installed PID.
This model features:
The grinder built into the Lelit Combi is the PL043MM - the micro-metric version of the PL043. This grinder has conical steel burrs to grind coffee to a fine consistency year after year. The micro-metric adjuster allows for very small adjustments to be made to the grind size with a relatively large turn of the adjusting knob. This give the barista very good control of the grind size.
The PL042TEMD 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 PL042TEMD 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 PL42. This makes all the difference when trying to achieve silky, creamy milk for cafe quality flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos.
The PL042TEMD 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.
This machine is fantastic value when you consider it:
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.

Very HappyBy: David Peade on 22 October 2020I am very happy with this machine, not only does it look good but it is making good coffee. The grinder inclusion allows for an easy adjustment for a variety of grinds and after two weeks I am mastering the milk frothing to make my perfect flat white. Jetblack's easy to follow direction sheets make cleaning and operation easy.
Lelit combi PL042TEMDBy: Nathan Beal on 21 October 2020Upgraded from a delonghi magnifica. Takes a little getting used to; weighing, grinding, distributing, tamping and finally pulling the shot....but worth it. Looks good and is way easier to keep clean than the semi-auto.
LeLit Combi PL042TEMDBy: Gary on 26 July 2020Have had this machine for a few weeks, enjoyed learning how to get the best espresso from it. I am happy with my choice, it has lived up to the good advice I received from JetBlack.
Good little workhorseBy: Jess on 28 April 2020Really happy with our machine. It was a step up from a little automatic machine and we love it so far - our coffee is exceptional! Grinder is a little messy and it takes a little getting used to the pump switch combinations, but otherwise, its a great machine. Delivery was fast and instructions were great.
Superb first machineBy: Jake M on 18 February 2020Couldn't be happier with this purchase - I'm by no means an expert, but this machine makes a sensational coffee with minimal learning curve. I drink espresso and my partner likes milk based drinks, and both of us couldn't be happier with it. Exceptional service and fast delivery from Jetblack Espresso!
