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:
- dual control PID temperature controller (brew and steam)
- a brew pressure gauge,
- 9BAR over pressure valve (OPV),
- durable metal toggle switches
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.

Great espresso machineBy: DMC on 6 March 2019I acquired this machine around 14 months ago and its performance has been faultless - making cups for the entire family each morning. This machine consistently produces excellent espresso and the frother is a breeze if you like yours with milk. The in-built grinder is hugely convenient and avoids extra cleaning associated with a separate grinder. The PID is provides for greater temperature control - meaning more consistent heat even after several cups. This machine came pre-primed by JBL which was really helpful. V. good value for money compared with more expensive models.
Great coffee at an Affordable PriceBy: Phillip Marr on 21 November 2018This machine has been fantastic. I use it every morning to make a coffee for myself and my wife. It makes a fantastic coffee and we love that it gives us the flexibility of a larger machine at such an affordable price.
PL042TEMD15 September 2018Great machine. We have had for 2 months, practice has been the key. Unable to fault the machine, it delivers great coffee consistently
JamesM Dulwich Hill2 April 2018Had one of these for three years now. Absolutely no problem. Occasional you need to clean up the group head and thats about it, for which you need a torx head screwdriver set, and an allen key set to disassemble it. Great coffee. Much more reliable and better results than our two previous Gaggias.
