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 purpose to give a boost to and strengthen the organoleptic properties of coffee. Way to the internal shape of its special heater, “Pulcina” robotically stops filtering the coffee on the right moment. This interruption helps to get rid of 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 somewhat pronounced. Its typical ‘V’ shape, harking back 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.
