Lelit tem is the best quality for buck. I use one for 4months and makes best espresso, but also easy to froth milk.

Pid is great for seting start temp

Minimum time to get ready for first shot 20-30min

Easy to set pres to 9bar to reduce channeling

 

Of course u need fresh coffee and a good grinder to back it

Brand new is 450euro. I got mine used for 290e. 2years old.

I dont think preinfusion is what you need if u want something to start with.. Anyway not fot this money :))

 

Is doing a great job and i still think i the best for my money/needs.

 

Hope this will help!

From what I know, it has PID together with it yeah? Did you manage to find a bottomless portafilter for it though? Also, i know that most tampers are 58mm, did you manage to find one for it as well?
Yes, pid is good to set starting temperature,if u dont have one u go guessing.

Is easy to find 57mm portafilter, also ims basket is a must.

If ur hany using tools u will find it easy making double spout portafilter to bottomless.

Thanks for the reply,coffee sorted, grinder? that's for another post. I am currently using a Bodum travel press as a back up. 60-100 quid machines I am done with . First saw Lelit on a business trip to Italy. I think I will go with a Lelit.

I know this is an old thread - but interested you said the pressure is easy to reduce. I haven't managed to find out how. can you point me in the right direction?
