The ‘Pulcina’ espresso coffee maker from Alessi is revolutionary both inside and out. Internally, the coffee machine has been designed with the technological input of coffee connoisseurs illycaffè who have identified the ideal shape that the water boiler should take to produce the perfect coffee. Thanks to this shape, the ‘Pulcina’ stops filtering at the right moment and helps to eliminate the eruption phase, the stage at which the burnt, bitter aftertaste sometimes associated with coffee is produced.
Externally, the espresso coffee maker is crafted from mirror polished aluminium with an unusual bulbous design that makes it an intriguing addition to any kitchen. A pronounced spout is designed to cut through drops for a precise pour, and the coffee machine is complete with a contrasting, heat-resistant black handle and knob.
