Alessi Pulcina Coffee Maker

Alessi Pulcina Coffee Maker

from 80.00

Brainchild of architect Michele De Lucchi, “Pulcina” is the Espresso coffee maker dedicated to coffee lovers. A revolutionary product that combines the technology developed by illycaffè in the eld of thermo uid dynamics with Alessi’s design experience. “Pulcina” 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. By analysing what takes place inside a coffee pot, Illy has identifed the ideal shape that the water boiler should take to produce the perfect coffee. Thanks to the 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 nal ltering stage that generates a burnt and bitter after-taste, ensuring that only the best qualities of the coffee are preserved and enhancing its full-bodied and rounded aroma. Practical and functional, making coffee with the “Pulcina” is just like making it with a traditional coffee pot. The core of the Coffee pot is enclosed within a graduated structure consisting of two rounded parts that narrow and meet at the point where the pot is screwed together. The cylindrical ball grip is made from thermoplastic resin in order to eliminate the risk of burning and is located at the centre of the lid making it easy to handle when opening and closing. The handle, also made from thermoplastic resin, is designed to be ergonomic and is positioned just the right distance from the body of the pot to prevent scalding when holding it. The spout is quite pronounced. Its typical “V” shape, reminiscent of a baby chick’s beak and it is specially designed to perfectly cut drops when pouring. The Coffee pot’s design is completed with a round base, again in aluminium, guarantees its stability on any type of cooking surface. An excellent heat conductor, the aluminium enables the coffee pot to be used on gas, electric or glass-ceramic tops, but not on electromagnetic induction cooktops. “Pulcina” is available in the 1-, 3- and 6-cup versions (6). Made from cast aluminium, it comes in two different variants: with black or red handle and ball grip.
