Out of the encounter of Alessi and Illy, two Italian references in the field of design and coffee culture, emerged Pulcina: a revolutionary mocha device that merges the technological innovation from Illy, applied to heat and fluid dynamics, with the experience and the design of Alessi.
The new mocha ‘Pulcina’ (an idea by Michele De Lucchi) is the result of a collaboration that began 15 years ago with the intent “to develop the mocha device of the new millennium.” Illy and Alessi wanted to improve the functionality of the traditional mocha device by developing a model that would refine the organoleptic properties of the coffee. Pulcina is made for those people that want to enjoy the excellence of a cup of coffee like it’s made by a barista.
The Illy Pulcina is the result of a shared common heritage based on excellence, creativity, and innovation. Both companies can boast a unique expertise, gained for over more than a century. They enjoy an international reputation: one as a leading coffee brand, the other as a figurehead of the “Factories of Italian design”. Available by the end of September 2015. We love ! shop.illy.com
