Michele De Lucchi for Alessi
|Art Club price (10%)||CHF 80.10|
Shaped to brew a perfect espresso
With this espresso maker, coffee culture receives a boost of elegance and flavor in one. The Pulcina combines the design experience of Alessi with the technological expertise of Illycaffè, whereby the goal was to brew a perfect espresso. The pot owes its striking and idiosyncratic shape, designed by Michele De Lucchi, to this aim: its stepped form prevents the water from erupting like a volcano, which in turn prevents the coffee becoming bitter. The name is derived from the Italian word for chick, “il pulcino”, on account of the coffee maker’s V-shaped spout, reminiscent of a small beak.
