  • Pros

    PID Temperature Control and LCC: The Lelit Electronic Control System (LCC) stands out by offering unparalleled customization and control over the coffee brewing process. It enables activation of pre-infusion, setting of auto-washing cycles, temperature adjustments in Celsius or Fahrenheit, and precise fine-tuning of the coffee-making process. This comprehensive control allows users to tailor their coffee to their exact preferences, ensuring the creation of a perfect cup every time.

This feature assists in maintaining the cleanliness of the espresso machine after brewing and simplifies routine cleaning tasks.

    Brass Boiler: The brass boiler is perfect for heat retention as well as overall longevity.

  • Cons

    Slow for Consecutive Shots: Switching back to brewing temperature after steaming takes about 15 minutes, requiring shots to be pulled before steaming milk. It is important to know this nuance if planning on making consecutive drinks with this machine.

    Some Low-Cost Accessories: The portafilter handle and tamper both seem underpriced for such a high-quality and well-built machine. Our first two recommended upgrades for the Lelit Victoria would be a bottomless portafilter and a better tamper.

Lelit Victoria FAQ

How long are Lelit Espresso machines expected to last with proper use and care?

Espresso machines of the prosumer class, especially those constructed from robust materials like stainless steel, copper, and brass, are celebrated for their durability and extended lifespan.

Lelit Espresso Machines, when maintained and serviced as recommended, can last over 15 years.

However, users often replace these machines before they fully exhaust their potential lifespan, driven by the desire for upgrades. Remarkably, Italian commercial-grade machines from the 60s and 70s, similar in build quality to Lelit machines, are still operational today after restorations.

Lelit's machines, handcrafted in small Italian workshops, embody this enduring legacy of quality and longevity, provided they receive appropriate care.

What is an Espresso PID Controller?

Temperature stability is crucial for brewing coffee, and different brew methods and roasts require different temperatures.

The Lelit Victoria features a PID controller, short for Proportional-Integral Derivative, which helps to ensure temperature stability in the espresso machine. These controllers use the PID algorithm to determine the best way to control the temperature in the machine and are more accurate than traditional thermostat-based espresso machines. They also allow you to directly control the temperature of the machine and are usually visible on the machine with control buttons to increase or decrease the brewing temperature. This feature is particularly useful for home baristas who like to experiment with different roasts and temperatures.

Do you need a PID for your espresso machine?

A PID temperature controller is not a necessary component for an espresso machine to operate, but it does provide an added level of precision and consistency in temperature control for baristas.

What is the Lelit LCC System?

The LELIT Electronic Control System (LCC) on Lelit Espresso Machines offers versatility with adjustable extraction profiles, pre-infusion settings, and individual boiler temperature controls. The machine also features an Economy mode, which turns off the steam boiler to save energy, while maintaining the desired temperature in the coffee boiler.

What type of water should be used in your espresso machine?

To minimize scale buildup and ensure a good taste, it's best to use filtered or bottled water in your espresso machine. However, using RO (reverse osmosis) or distilled water is not recommended, as these types of water lack the necessary minerals for a delicious shot and may cause problems with the machine's water sensor.

Where are Lelit Espresso Machines manufactured?

All Rocket espresso machines, including the Appartamento, are hand-built in Italy!

How do you descale your Lelit Espresso machine?

Descaling is an important part of maintaining your Lelit Espresso machine, but it should be done with caution. If not done properly, regular descaling can lead to damage of the group head and void your warranty. To avoid this, it is recommended to clean and maintain your machine regularly, and have it descaled by a professional technician. This way, you can ensure that the descaling process will not cause any damage to the machine.

What outlet does the Lelit Victoria use?

The Lelit Victoria uses a standard 110V plug.

What kind of pump does the Lelit Victoria use?

The Lelit Victoria uses a vibratory pump.

What makes the E61 group head so special?

The E-61 group is a feature that provides consistency and enhances the flavor of the espresso. It circulates hot water through the boiler and group head continuously, maintaining the appropriate brew temperature range at the group head. Additionally, its automatic pre-infusion function saturates the coffee in the group head when you start extraction, leading to a more evenly extracted and refined flavor profile. The best part is that this feature operates on its own, so it does not require any special actions from the user to benefit from its performance. This is the result of good design.

What size baskets come with the Lelit Victoria?

The Lelit Victoria machine comes equipped with several high-grade IMS filter baskets including:

  1. LELIT58 2-ways portafilter with design handle and Coffee Slide spout
  2. LELIT58 1 dose filter (9-11 g), IMS
  3. LELIT58 2 doses filter (14-18 g), IMS
  4. LELIT58 blind filter, IMS

Can I leave my Lelit Espresso machine on all day?

While some people leave their Lelit Espresso machines on all day, it's not recommended. To prolong the lifespan of the machine, it's best to turn it on in the morning and turn it off when no longer in use to minimize the internal components exposure to heat over time.
