Pulcina comes from research entirely dedicated to the design and functionality of the espresso coffee maker. As a result of this study and the application of the technology developed by illycaffè, Pulcina is a high-performance coffee maker with a boiler that stops dispensing the drink at the right time before the coffee gets a bitter aftertaste. This helps to enhance the full and rich aroma of this drink. The spout has been designed with the same attention to functional aspects: when pouring coffee, its special V shape, which recalls a chick's beak (hence the name of the coffee maker) allows it to perfectly stop the drop. The handle and plastic knob in red completes the coffee maker.
Pulcina coffee maker, designed by Michele de Lucchi, is a revolutionary espresso maker that combines the technology developed by illycaffè and the design experience of Alessi. Made of aluminium casting, Pulcina encapsulates a small but substantial design innovation: its shape that makes it possible to prepare a practically perfect coffee! Measures 7.5 cm diameter by 26cm high. Makes 6 cups of coffee.
Since its founding in 1921, Alessi has gradually evolved to become one of the leading factories of Italian design. Working with a variety of materials such as stainless steel, glass, and plastic, Alessi's mission is to reconcile art and industry, creating handcrafted objects produced with the help of machines.
