Architect Michele De Lycchi was causing waves with his Pulcina Espresso Coffeemaker before it was launched with a teaser at the 2015 London Design Festival.
And it’s not getting attention just for it’s amazing design. Italian company illycafe had made a sizeable investment into optimising the shape of Coffee Pots to create the perfect coffee. The internal shape and filtering prevents any burnt coffee from adding bitterness to the final brew. Combined with that research is Alessi’s amazing standard of design. So not only do you get the freshest looking coffee maker we’ve seen, but the freshest tasting blend too.
The Pulcina became globally available late in 2015. From Alessi.
