Alessi-Illy duo craft a novel espresso maker, designed by Michele De Lucci


In the 20th century, a cup of coffee is served by hand-maidens and uniformed butlers, but of course an elegant coffee-maker would certainly create an impression. Michele De Lucchi’s ‘Pulcina’ espresso maker is a perfect blend of two flourishing Italian trademarks. While Alessi, a name eminent in households has carved the design, coffee connoisseur Illycaffe’s technological advances have been put to use. The result: a revolutionary mocha device.


15 years ago, Pulcina was conceptualized with the endeavour of crafting “a mocha device of the new millennium”. The Illy-Alessi duo was inclined towards improving the functionality of the conventional mocha appliance by developing one that would purify the organoleptic properties of coffee. If you are a coffee loyalist, this piece of art is truly for you.

Truth to be told, we loved the chic design along with the cup of coffee it produced. We highly recommend the ‘Pulcina’ espresso maker, which is available this September on shop.illy.com
