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

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.
