Espresso Pot for Real Coffee Lovers

Pulcina from Alessi is a brainchild of the architect Michele De Lucchi and a coffee maker for real coffee lovers. The design combines a technology that illycaffè has developed after some investigations into the dynamics of heat flow.

Ideal Kettle Shape for Perfect Espresso

Pulcina is the result of a long search: illycaffè and Alessi wanted to find out how the shape of the coffeepot could be enhanced, to improve the organoleptic properties of espresso and to emphasise it. And that’s how they analysed what’s going on inside a coffeepot. As a result, Illy was able to detect the ideal shape of the boiler - the lower part of the pot, in which the water is boiling - for perfect espresso.

Only the Best Goes into the Cup

Thanks to the special nature of the inside of the boiler, 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. Only the best quality of coffee goes into the cup, and its full-bodied and rounded aroma can be tasted entirely.

V-Shaped Spout for Drip-Free Pouring

The spout is relatively characteristic of the design. Its typical V-shape, reminiscent of a baby chick’s beak ( “pulcino” is Italian for chick). It is specially designed to perfectly prevent from drops when pouring. Pulcina is practical, functional, and doesn’t require special skills. The coffee is prepared just like in a traditional espresso coffee maker.

The Pulcina espresso cooker by Michele De Lucchi for Alessi is made of cast aluminium and is available in different sizes. The handle and the knob consist of polyamides in black or red.
