The Pulcina Espresso Maker from Alessi by designer Michele de Lucchi is the product of intense research into the optimisation of the shape of the coffee pot in order to improve and enhance the taste and smell of coffee. Thanks to the internal shape of its special heater, Pulcina automatically stops filtering the coffee at the right moment. This helps to eliminate the eruption phase, the final filtering stage that generates a burnt and bitter aftertaste, ensuring that only the finest qualities of the coffee realised - enhancing its full-bodied and rounded aroma. The spout is quite pronounced. It 'V' shape, reminiscent of a baby chick’s beak, is specially designed to perfectly cut drops when pouring. Practical and functional, making coffee with the Pulcina is just like making it with a traditional coffee pot - but with a better result.
With a distinctively retro silhouette Pulcina is available in several sizes with a handle in red or black.
