Compact and good looking machine, and without compBy: Kym on 2 May 2020This machine is perfect for someone who makes 1-3 cups at a time and wants a compact good looking setup on their kitchen bench. Things I like: - 300ml boiler is big enough for everyday use but small enough to heat up rapidly, like 5min or so, - Grinder is powerful, I regularly grind 20g in under 10s, - Boiler is mounted directly to the grouphead to ensure great thermal stability (as also found in the $6k La Marzocco Linea Mini, - Single boiler setup is ideal for the home user in my opinion, as it allows you to have PID control directly over espresso and steam while also keeping the unit compact. The machine heats up to steam temperature in the time it takes me to knock the grinds out of the portafilter and pour milk into the jug, about a minute. You can cool it down in the time by flushing it with water, but the home users rarely makes so many coffees to have to do that. - All stainless steel compact construction with modern styling. - Compact enough to easily put in the back of the car for holidays. Things I don’t like: - The steam dial is a bit unnecessary as you typically want full steam pressure, should just be an on/off switch or valve. I had Jetblack modify my machine. - It’s a bit tricky to open the machine up and change the pressure setpoint but most people won’t need to do that anyway.
Great machine!By: Adrian Bradshaw on 2 May 2020We bought the Lelit Kate machine about a month ago. Loving it so far. Easy to use, a good range of features including adjustable preset grind times, low water alert, and shot pouring timer. In built grinder works brilliantly. It makes excellent coffee and looks perfect in the kitchen. We would highly recommend this to other prospective buyers. We receivereceived great service from Debbie at Jet Black Espresso that made choosing this machine easy.
Lelit KateBy: Bridget Kinnear on 29 September 2017I purchased the Lelit Kate for my mother who is in her "golden years". I already own a Lelit base model which is great, but requires the boiler to be refilled after steaming which my mother felt concerned about in case she forgot. The Lelit Kate automatically refills the boiler and will turn off the steam function if it is left on by accident. It took me most of a day to adjust the superfine setting of the machine grinder to my Mackellar Coffee brand. I also had to adjust the temperature down for the coffee shots as it was burning the coffee. The machine makes good coffee shots with less coffee than the older Lelit as it has redesigned the filter baskets. It is simple to use once set correctly. Two drawbacks with the machine are that the filter baskets fit very firmly into the group handle making it hard for older hands to remove, and the boiler takes up to three minutes to heat for steam if you wait for the OK symbol to appear. Staff at Jetblack suggested that it is unnecessary to wait for the OK symbol, and you can steam without waiting. This machine is simple to use and makes excellent coffee.
