Pulcina Coffee maker - 3 cup, black - des. Michele de Lucchi (made by Alessi)


By: Alessi

An absolute beauty that would shine in any style of kitchen. 

This revolutionary espresso maker combines the technology developed by illycaffè and the design experience of Alessi. Designed by Michele de Lucchi, Pulcina encapsulates a small but substantial design innovation that dispenses the drink at the right time before the coffee gets a bitter aftertaste. This helps to enhance the full and rich aroma. The spout, which recalls a chick's beak (hence the name of the coffee maker, Italian for chick) allows it stop drips and drops.
