Artisanal coffee doesn’t have to be a lot of work. The Poppy Pour-Over Coffee Machine makes it as simple as a normal coffee maker. It features a built-in hopper that holds 1.25 pounds of beans, and a built-in burr grinder so you can wait to grind until you’re ready, ensuring maximum freshness. A 50 oz. water reservoir lets you make up to four servings without refilling, a charcoal filter cleans your water, and best of all, you can adjust the machine’s settings right from the Wink app, saving your favorites and sharing them too. And when it’s time to order beans and filters, no need to worry, the machine can take care of that too.
Pulcina, the brainchild of architect Michele De Lucchi combines technology developed by illycaffè with flawless design by Alessi.
Pulcina was born out of intense research into the optimization of the shape of the Coffee pot in order to improve and enhance the properties of coffee. With the shape of its special heater, Pulcina automatically stops filtering the coffee at the right moment. This interruption helps to eliminate 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. The pronounced ‘V’ shape spout is specially designed to perfectly cut drops when pouring guaranteeing an exceptional cup.
