In The Press

  • In 1969, La Spaziale of Bologna, Italy, created a patented espresso system that warmed water with steam rather than boiling. The brand continues to innovate. Its new compact machine is made exclusively for Clive Coffee in Portland, Ore., and functions like a commercial model, with stainless-steel filters and a dual-boiler system.

  • Nothing beats a great shot of espresso or a sweet and delicious latte from the comfort of your own home, so we set out to find the perfect home espresso setup. After testing and experiment with a wide variety of expensive and inexpensive espresso machines, grinders, and accessories, we were head over heels about the LUCCA A53.

Overview

LUCCA A53 Mini Espresso Machine
The La Spaziale S1 has long been a team favorite here at Clive. Our customers have appreciated the solid build quality and generous steam power.

Our founder Mark traveled to Bologna to work with La Spaziale to develop a few customizations to the S1, specifically designed for our customers. The LUCCA A53 is the result of this collaboration.

The LUCCA mark shines through the control panel’s modern matte finish and the matching matte drip tray contrasts with the gloss black La Spaziale badge. The back of the machine is all stainless, which makes a fantastic contrast to the wood side panels that we make here in Portland.

The volume of water to be dispensed for single and double shots is easily programmable. While most people keep the factory temperature setting of 202°, the brewing temperature can be adjusted to your liking using the control pad.

We find the deeper 53mm portafilter basket to be very forgiving of channeling, and a nice espresso blend like the Lovejoy can be dialed in to pull beautiful, sweet shots.

If you appreciate the distinctive shape of the La Spaziale S1 line, you’ll love the subtle design upgrades we’ve added to this well-regarded machine. The LUCCA A53 plumbs directly to your water line, and the A53 Mini has an internal water tank and cannot be plumbed.

Compak E5 Espresso Grinder
The Compak E5 utilizes the same technology and features you’ll see in the rest of the EOD (Essential On Demand) line alongside Slayer espresso machines in cafes around the world. When we first saw the grinder at SCAA 2016, we were immediately impressed by the grind speed and quiet performance of that massive 650 watt motor. Just how fast is the E5? A 14g double shot takes 4.8 seconds. Faster dispensing of coffee means less time for the beans to get heated by friction in the burrs and from the motor. Fitting this all into a 16.5″ tall footprint is a triumph of engineering by Compak. The grind adjustment utilizes their stepless Parallel grind regulation system, just like you’ll find on the E10 conical. To adjust the grind, loosen the lock nut, slide the top collar as much or as little as you want (it’s very smooth and precise, allowing extremely small adjustments), and then tighten the lock nut.

The elegant electronic user interface allows programming of the grind time as well as tracking of a variety of data, such as when it’s time to replace the burrs. In a home, this should be many years down the road. The grinder also includes a built-in cooling fan, and a gorgeous adjustable portafilter holder with dosing funnel to direct the coffee. You can activate the grinder with the portafilter button, or manually on the touch screen.
