It's not app-connected. It's not even electric. Instead, the Alessi Pulcina Espresso Maker relies on the shape of the object itself to do its work. Designer Michele de Lucchi did research, and discovered a way to design the internal heater such that it would automatically stop filtering the coffee at the optimal time, preventing any burnt, bitter flavors from seeing into your drink, and ensuring that the full, rich quality of your grind comes through. Available in three sizes, and in your choice of cast aluminum with black or red accents.
