Pulcina coffee maker, designed by Michele de Lucchi, is a revolutionary moka that combines the technology developed by illycaffè and the design experience of Alessi. Made of aluminium casting, Pulcino encapsulates a small but substantial design innovation: its shape that makes it possible to prepare a practically perfect coffee! It can be used on every cooktop, even induction.

Pulcina nasce da una ricerca interamente dedicata al design e alla funzionalità della caffettiera espresso. Frutto di questo studio e dell'applicazione della tecnoloiga sviluppata da illycaffè, Pulcina è una caffettiera dalle altissime prestazioni, con una caldaia che interrompe l'erogazione della bevanda al momento giusto, prima che il caffè acquisti un retrogusto amaro. Ciò consente di valorizzare l’aroma corposo e rotondo di questa bevanda. Il beccuccio è stato disegnato con la stessa cura per gli aspetti funzionali: quando si versa il caffè, la sua particolare forma a V, che ricorda il becco di un pulcino (da qui il nome della caffettiera) permette di tagliarne perfettamente la goccia. Completano la caffettiera, il manico e il pomolo in plastica presenti nelle colorazioni nero e rosso.
