Pulcina Espresso Maker

While it may seem like a nightmare to clean at first glance, the Pulcina Espresso Maker’s insides are actually composed of two smooth metal spheres devoid of the characteristic ribbing on the outside. The stunning device works just like a traditional moka pot: fill it up with finely ground coffee and water then place it over a heat source. The difference is that Pulcina stops filtering at just the right moment thanks to a distinctively designed heater, cleanly eliminating the eruption phase that would otherwise render the final cup of coffee more bitter and burnt.

Available soon in three and six cup versions at Alessi – $80+ [via]
