E61 type group
38
The E61 type group is a mechanical distribution unit that we use in high quality
espresso coffee machines to enhance the organoleptic properties, the flavour and
aroma of authentic Italian Espresso.
The mechanism combines a thermal siphon system and a pre-infusion process to
extract the most flavour and aroma from the coffee.
The thermo-siphon ensures a stable water temperature inside the system, while
automatic pre-infusion allows longer contact between the hot water and the
ground coffee before extraction.
The result is a rich, aromatic brew with a compact cream on top.
The professionals’
choice
The E61 type group is an
icon of Italian espresso
and the extraction
system preferred by the
best bartenders.

The art of espresso coffee
Contrary to what you might think, making a perfect Espresso is not that easy.
It takes experience, ability, passion and a little bit of curiosity. In this paragraph
we would like to share with you some of the basic rules for making a perfect cup
of Espresso.
Suggested doses:
Ristretto (Strong) about 20 ml – Espresso about 30 ml – Lungo (Long) about 60 ml.
The “5 M’s”
If you want to make perfect Espressos,
you should start by ensuring the five essential factors which turn a simple cup
of coffee into an Espresso for connoisseurs! These are the “5 M’s”; in Italian:
miscela (blend), macinatura (grinding),
macchina (machine), manualità (skill) and
manutenzione (maintenance).
1- Miscela (Blend)
Good Espressos are always made with
a good blend of coffee. An Espresso
with the right taste requires a blend
of two types of coffee, Arabica and
Robusta. The first gives the coffee its
delicate aroma and the right amount
of acidity, while the second type gives
it its full taste, body and cream. The
quantities depend on your own taste.
Try out different combinations until
you find the blend you like best!
2- Macinatura (Grinding)
The grinder is a must for making good
Espresso. Coffee should always be
ground just before it is used so that it
preserves its taste and aroma. The Lelit grinders let you adjust the grinding
level to suit the coffee blend in order
to establish the correct extraction time
and amount of cream.
3- Macchina espresso
(Espresso machine)
Lelit coffee machines are designed
and built to let you adjust the water
pressure and temperature to your requirements. The right balance of these
two factors allows you to extract from
the ground coffee not only the substances that provide its taste, but also
the insoluble particles that give your
coffee body and aroma.
4- Manualità (Skill)
Half of the result depends on how you
use the machine. A passionate expert
is an essential part of the Espresso
production chain and can enhance
the result to bring additional value to
the final product. Passion and practice
are, therefore, the secrets to learning
how to use the machine. You can experiment with different blends of coffee, grinding, pressing, water temperature and pressure, not just to make
an Espresso, but to make the one that
is just right for you.

5- Manutenzione (Maintenance)
Daily maintenance, scheduled maintenance and care of the machine will ensure the quality of the beverage and
the durability of the product you have
purchased.
A clean machine says a lot about your
passion for coffee making.
Coffee varieties
The choice of the blend is an essential
factor for making the ideal coffee for
your taste. There are a lot of different
varieties of coffee blends on the market to choose from. The differences in
flavour, aroma and texture depend on
the quantities of the two varieties of
coffee that make the blend.
Arabica
This is a sweeter and more delicate
variety of coffee, with a rich aroma
and cream that is very thin, dense and
compact.
Arabica
It is grown between 900/2000 m
Rich aroma
The beans have an elongated oval
shape with an “S” shaped groove.
Caffeine between 0.9 ~ 1.7%
Robusta
This variety is woody, bitter, full-bodied and spicy, with little aroma.
Its cream is more frothy and grey.
Robusta
It is grown between 200/600 m
Spicy aroma
The beans have a round
shape with a straight groove.
Caffeine between 1.8 ~ 4%
No variety of coffee can make an ideal
Espresso on its own.
The perfect Espresso has a top layer
of cream 2-3 mm thick, a nut brown
to dark brown colour, with reddish
tinges and light streaks, a harmonious
flavour, a strong, balanced aroma and
a sweet, long-lasting aftertaste.
It has a strong aroma with notes of
flowers, fruits, toast and chocolate.
These sensations can last just a moment or can persist for a few minutes
in your mouth. The taste is round and
well structured. The acid and bitter
perceptions are well balanced whereas there is little or no astringency.
The ideal parameters to obtain this
type of coffee are:
7 ± 0,5 g. of ground coffee.
25 seconds to brew 30 ml.
88 / 92°C when brewing and 80°C in the
cup.
8 /10 bar pressure during extraction.
Even Arabica blends often contain a
small amount of Robusta, which is necessary to enhance the cream and add
aroma and body to the espresso.
Blends made for coffee bars usually
contain 20% Robusta but in southern
Italy, where they prefer a stronger
taste, the percentage can reach 4050%.
At the end of the day, it’s just a matter of taste…Experiment until you find
the blend youArabica
like best!
It is grown between 900/2000 m
Rich aroma
The beans have an elongated oval
shape with an “S” shaped groove.
Caffeine between 0.9 ~ 1.7%

Cappuccinos
two seconds, as it always contains
some water due to condensation.
There’s nothing better than a cappuccino to start your day. Although they
are made and served everywhere, few
people know how to make one properly.
Making the coffee is only part of this
complex procedure. The froth often
creates major problems, but thanks to
the steam wand on our machine, with
a few suggestions and a little practice
you’ll soon be making cappuccinos
just like in the coffee bars!
Milk and jug
You need 100 ml of milk to make a
cappuccino.
ILK
M
5°C
100ml
Fresh whole milk provides a smoother,
creamier and tastier froth. Milk will not
froth at over 65°C, so cold milk from
the fridge should be used to allow
more time for it to froth. The best jugs
to use are made of stainless steel and
have a spout, like the Lelit jug (code
PL101-PL102 - not included).
The jug should never be more than
half filled with milk.
Frothing the milk
Before using the steam wand, some
steam should be released for about
47
2 SEC
Insert the wand so that the end of
the nozzle is near the side of the jug
(pretend you have split the top section into four parts and insert the
nozzle into one of them) and about
one centimetre below the surface of
the milk. Since the milk will start to
expand in volume, you will have to
gradually lower the jug so that the
nozzle is always kept immersed at the
same depth. This process is complete
when the milk reaches a temperature
of about 37°C, or when you can feel
the warmth with your hand. You can
use the thermometer too (code PL107
- not included).
Processing the milk
This phase is very important to make
the cream thick, with a fine texture
and a shiny surface.
65°C
PRO Line - Mara - PL62S · PL62 · PL62T
48
Insert the wand all the way down and
tilt the jug to create a vortex. Heat the
milk to the desired temperature, without exceeding 65°C. Close the steam.
Prepare the milk by first tapping the
jug on the countertop to remove any
air bubbles and then rotating it to
keep the milk and froth well amalgamated. The final result should be a
smooth, creamy surface without any
bubbles.
Pouring the milk
You should leave the milk to settle for
a least half a minute, so we suggest
you always prepare it before making
the coffee. The doses for a cappuccino should be one part Espresso and
two equal parts of milk and froth.

Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning and maintenance of the machine are essential for the quality of the
coffee and the durability of the appliance.
Cleaning
The machine must be cleaned at least
once a week.
Before starting, remove the plug from
the electrical outlet and allow the machine to cool.
Use a soft cloth, preferably microfiber,
like the Lelit cloth (code MC972 - not included), and moisten it with plain water.
Do not use abrasive detergents and do
not immerse the machine in water.
For thorough maintenance, we suggest
you use the Lelit brush (code PL106 not included), which will help you clean
the nozzles and the spaces between
the gaskets more effectively, removing
stains and coffee residues from even
the smallest cracks.
Warm running water can be used to
clean the removable parts of the machine. The filters and filter holder should
never be washed in a dishwasher.
There is no need to clean the filters after
each use, but just to ensure they are not
clogged.
However, to ensure the best performance from your machine, it is essential to thoroughly clean the steam wand
and filter holder after each use.
The filter holder should be cleaned to remove the greasy coffee residues that can
negatively affect the taste of your espresso.
Wash the exterior part of the steam
wand with a damp cloth and release a
little steam to remove any milk residues
from inside the tube, as these could obstruct the steam output, making it more
difficult to froth milk properly.
Descaling the machine
Use of the machine creates a natural
formation of lime scale, over a time period depending on how frequently the
machine is used and on the hardness of
the water.
Lime scale deposits can obstruct the tubes
and decrease the brewing temperature, altering the quality of the coffee and reducing
the lifetime of your machine.
49
PRO Line - Mara - PL62S · PL62 · PL62T
50
70lt
35lt
To avoid the formation of limescale,
which can also deposit in the internal circuits, we recommend the use
of our Lelit resin filter (code MC747 MC747PLUS) to soften the water. Please
insert the filter in the tank following the
instructions on the packaging. The filter
purifies the water from the calcium and
magnesium salts which are deposited
to form lime scale and affect the taste
of your coffee. Remember that the filter loses its effectiveness after a certain
number of gallons treated, so replace it
periodically. Instructions for the use and
replacement of the filter are given on
the box.
To avoid any possibility of damaging
the machine’s components, NEVER,
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, ADD
ANY DESCALING PRODUCTS TO
THE WATER TANK.
Watch the tutorial
to understand how the water
softener filters work.
Back-flushing
It is advisable to back-flush the machine
once a month (washing the operational parts used during brewing) using the
