Using the appropriate ground coffee, you can prepare standard filter coffee and introduce the same quantity of water to make the perfect cup of coffee at home.
Available in two sizes: 3 or 6 cups. Both sizes are suitable for induction hobs, just make sure the hob ring you use will activate when an object with a diameter of at least 90mm is placed on it.
"Pulcina" is the result of a collaboration begun several years ago, together with "Illycaffè", aimed at optimising the coffee maker's shape to improve the organoleptic properties of the coffee produced using an espresso maker. The experts at Illy's R&D Laboratory identified some important changes to be made to the espresso maker that would reduce and nearly eliminate the so-called "Stromboli-volcano effect" that is common to all espresso makers on the market today.

Alessi draws inspiration from Italian industrial culture to create unique, contemporary products. Collaborating with over 500 designers around the globe, Alessi believes that “a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories…”
Born in Granerolo, Verbania, in 1916, Carlo Alessi studied technical design at the OMAR institute in Novara. At an early age, he worked in the metal workshop set up by his father, Giovanni, in 1921. In the fifties, he became managing director of the company, introducing a new international dimension, which he developed by working with external designers. He remained president of Alessi until 2009, when he passed away.
Alessi is now a B Corp, a company which strives to maximise the positive impact they have on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, by using the business as a force for regeneration and sustainability.More from Alessi
