Espresso Maker for True Coffee Lovers

Pulcina by Alessi is a brainchild of architect Michele De Lucchi and a coffee maker for true coffee lovers. The revolutionary design combines a technology that illycaffè developed by investigating the dynamics of heat flow with the experience of Alessi.

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 in order to improve and emphasise the organoleptic properties of espresso. Therefore, they analysed what goes on inside a coffeepot. As a result, Illy was able to determine the ideal shape of the boiler - the lower part of the pot, which holds the boiling water - for perfect espresso.

Only the Best for You

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.

V-Shape Spout for Drip-Free Pouring

The spout is quite marked. Its typical V-shape is reminiscent of a baby chick's beak ( "pulcino" is Italian for chick). It is specially designed to perfectly prevent dripping when pouring. Pulcina is practical, functional, and doesn't require special skills. Coffee is prepared just like in a traditional espresso coffee maker.

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

Beautiful design

4 of 5 stars 14.05.2019, , Alessi - Pulcina Espresso Maker, 15 cl, black

Automatically translated from German

The Alessi espresso maker has a very nice design. It works uncomplicated. Since I do not have a gas stove and the heating on the hob is not optimal (waste of energy, time) I bought a small hotplate with the appropriate diameter.

Typical Alessi. And yet you can always find new ideas to enjoy your espresso. But it is also excellent as a decorative element. Or even to collect. Ales forever.

Not suitable for induction

The disappointment was maybe big: in the product description I didn't read that the Pulcina espresso cooker is not suitable for induction cookers, but only at home :( How can you design a great new, optimized espresso cooker and not use it for induction cookers? Besides, the design on the picture is a bit more beautiful than in the kitchen, but I couldn't say why...


Comment by the Connox Team:
Sehr geehrte Frau G., wir bedauern, dass Sie die falsche Variante bei uns bestellt haben. Wir verkaufen ebenfalls Produkt-Varianten mit Magnetboden aus Stahl für Induktionsherde bei uns im Shop. Diese sind entsprechend mit (Induktion) im Artikelnamen gekennzeichnet. Sollte das Produkt nicht Ihren Vorstellungen entsprechen, können Sie selbstverständlich immer von ihrem 30-tägigen Rückgaberecht Gebrauch machen. Wir hoffen, dass Sie bei der nächsten Lieferung wieder vollauf zufrieden sein werden. Mit besten Grüßen, Ihr Connox-Team
