Alessi Pulcina 6-cup Stove Top Coffee Maker by Michele De Lucchi
The Alessi Pulcina espresso coffee maker, designed by Michele de Lucchi is the product of intense research into the optimisation of the shape of the coffee pot in order to improve and enhance the organoleptic properties of coffee.
Alessi Pulcina 6-cup Stove Top Expresso Coffee Maker Design
Thanks to the clever internal shape of its special heater, Pulcina automatically stops filtering the coffee at the right moment. This interruption helps to eliminate the eruption phase, the final filtering stage that generates a burnt and bitter aftertaste, ensuring that only the finest qualities of the coffee are preserved and enhancing its full-bodied and rounded aroma. The results is the perfect expresso coffee.
The spout is quite pronounced. It's typical 'V' shape, reminiscent of a baby chick’s beak, is specially designed to perfectly cut drops when pouring. Practical and functional, making coffee with the Pulcina is just like making it with a traditional coffee pot.
