Lelit PL044MM Fred Doserless Espresso Coffee Grinders with Stepless Grinding Adjustment

This beautiful model is replacing the previous PL53 Fred which have sold successfully over the last 10 years. Same size burrs. Same grinding adjustment and operation. Only this time, there is an actual portafilter fork and nicer design pleasing to the eye!

Grinding Adjustment
  • Stepless – Infinite number of grind settings which allows you really fine tune your grind. Adjustment dial is on the right side of the grinder. Turn clockwise for a finer grind and counterclockwise for a coarser grind.
Grinding Burrs
  • Conical Grinding Burrs – 38 mm in size. Spins at a low rpm which generates less heat. Heat buildup can negatively affect your coffee grinds by heating the coffee grinders before brewing.
Grinding Operation
  • Semi automatic – The power button is on the left side. To start grinding, push your portafilter against the grinding button above the fork. Press and hold for continuous grinding, and release to stop.
Bean Hopper
  • Low profile – The total height of the grinder without the hopper is a little under 11.5″. The bean hopper adds another 3″ bringing the total height to approximately 14.5″.
  • The bean hopper now has numbers written which you can use a “guide” to see your current setting. Please note there is no indication on the grinder itself to line up with the numbers.

      This Fred grinder is less in weight due to the smaller motor, but it makes up in a lot of other areas.

      The Fred has stepless adjustment which allows the user to dial in the grind more precisely over the stepped settings of the Rancilio Rocky espresso grinder. The grind fineness of the Lelit Fred PL044 espresso grinder can give $600+ espresso grinders a run for thier money in terms of grind quality.

      Both grinders do have some retention, and the amount can depend upon the grind fineness.

      The Fred's conical burrs at 38mm would allow more surface area for grinding beans. More surface area usually means more dissipation of heat buildup during the grinding of beans. However, the Rocky burrs do a very good job in grinding.

      The Fred doserless stepless espresso coffee grinders have stainless steel frames and bodies compared to the aluminum frame on the Rancilio Rocky espresso coffee grinders.

      Q Does the 13" height spec include the hopper? answer now
      Asked on July 21, 2019 10:06 pm


      We measured the height to be a little under 13.5".  Close to 13 3/8". This includes the hopper and lid.
