The stove top espresso coffee maker “Pulcina”, designed by Michele de Lucchi is the product of intense research into the optimization of the shape of the coffee pot with a view to enhance and improve the organoleptic properties of coffee. Way to the internal shape of its special heater, “Pulcina” mechanically stops filtering the coffee on the right moment. This interruption helps to do away with 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 spout is slightly pronounced. Its typical ‘V’ shape, paying homage to a baby chick’s beak, is specially designed to perfectly cut drops when pouring. Practical and functional, making coffee with the “Pulcina” is rather like making it with a traditional coffee pot.
