    I am very much looking forward to seeing this one Charlie.

    It will be great to have some Italian build quality to shake up the entry level dual boiler market.

    Nice get! 8-)

        Looks awesome....and will no doubt be bullet proof
        Shows as $1800 on the JetBlack website.
        A shiny alternative to the Breville with way more street cred :-*

          Hmm, yes Lelit definitely has much more street cred but at $1800 I think Breville will still lead the market saving the buyer $500. I think it would need to be around the $1500 to be a real threat.

            Yes, the dual boiler has the same sized group head as the other models.

              Hmmm, My semi-man-lust for the Breville just got a competitor, This beastie looks just as shiny as the Local Lads effort if not moreso. :-/

              Cost notwithstanding, Id be curious to see the internal setup, is it anything like Brevilles? or is it a straight two boiler setup with no HX. Im going to guess that the group head is passivly heated also? (similar to the single-boiler lelits) which takes it down a notch in technical stuffs

              Id hardly say that this new Lelit would be a threat to the Brevilles local dominance however, given that you can walk into major department stores and pick one of those up, Whereas with the Lelit, theres one outlet so far, and thats JetBlackEspresso

              Still. it IS shiny

                The lower half of the lelit boiler includes the group. As the group is integrated, active heating is not required. I am therefore going to call the Lelit group a saturated group and claim that is a GS/3 killer.  ;D

                Seriously though, the PID controlled Lelits are a serious bit o kit and to have steam on demand will make this a killer little machine. Lelit build quality is very good with lots of stainless and brass and minimal use of silicon and teflon tubing.

                  Congratulations on importing these Charlie.

                  If this model is anything like the build of other Lelits, and I have no reason to believe its not, then Im confident it will not only perform well, but also address a gap in the market for discerning customers.

                  Cheers

                    Re: Lelit PL60T Dual Boiler Espresso Machine

                    I constantly get good tasting espresso out of my Lelit without really trying. If its going to give me the same service and give me steam on demand and no more boiler priming, then wow.

                    But I got to say this about Lelit aesthetics though, they really look more like they belong stuck to a factory machinery than on the kitchen bench and Im not sure if that is a pro or a con

                      The dual boiler has gone one step further too. The group collar is now an integral part of the boiler rather than a bolt on piece.

                        The Lelit Dual Boiler network has already started to expand. It will be available in SE QLD through Neli Coffee and VIC wont be too far behind ...

                              Very much looking forward to seeing one of these things up close, in my experience Lelit machines just work damn well and its great to have another small footprint dual boiler in the mix.

                              Pity they could not shoehorn a little more volume in the brew boiler to aid thermostability even further, but this of course remains to be seen
