TO OBTAIN THE FINEST COFFEE
Pulcina coffee maker, designed by Michele de Lucchi, is a revolutionary moka 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!
Pulcina comes from a 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 colours black and red complete the coffee maker.
