Alessi CICO Egg Cup with Spoon
This Pulcina Espresso Coffee Maker by Alessi is the result of intense research into the optimal shape for a coffee pot to enhance the taste and smell of coffee. Pulcina automatically stops filtering the coffee at just the right moment to avoid that burnt and bitter aftertaste, so only the finest qualities of coffee are preserved, thus enhancing its full-bodied and rounded aroma. The spout is also a well thought out and innovative design, as it perfectly cuts drops when pouring. Designed by Michele de Lucchi.
You can count on Alessi for form, function and fun. Established in 1921, Alessi strive to bring design dreams to life in a way that enlivens emotion for the end user. The Italy-based brand takes ordinary everyday objects and elevates them to iconic status – the whistle of the stove-top kettle takes shape as a singing bird, whilst the Salif citrus squeezer has earned cult status owing to its retro-future tripod design. From a quirky homeware gift to an elegant kitchen utensil or tool, Alessi’s well-designed pieces bring contemporary Italian design, and a touch of humour, to the home.
