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 Lucca A53 espresso machine is a custom machine produced by La Spaziale specifically for Clive, based on the sturdy the Vivaldi II espresso machine platform. Mid-centrury modern design, beautifully wrapped in stainless steel, front and back and complimented with an attractive matte black display panel, this machine is at home in any kitchen.

In the inside, it is commercial quality La Spaziale throughout. Huge double boilers, great steam power, a saturated style group head. It comes to temperature incredibly fast and rebounds quickly from each shot. This is the perfect espresso machine for those looking for the capability to make multiple back to back drinks. Further, it is an excellent beginner machine. It’s a semi-automatic machine that can be programmed for specific volumetric dosing. Also, it has a forgiving 53mm portafilter that makes your espresso puck deeper and reduces the potential for channeling.

With a front loading water reservoir, and low clearance it can fit in almost every kitchen. Easy to maintain and can be passed along to your children. We use this machine daily at Clive HQ in Portland and it will stand the test of time.

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.
