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.

Eureka Zenith 65E
The Eureka Zenith 65E is an exciting new tier of espresso performance and value for Clive Coffee. If you’re a coffee shop, office or home enthusiast seeking a grinder with faster dispensing, more efficient (less waste), fluffier, and more uniform grind resulting in cleaner espresso flavor, the Zenith is ready to impress. And yes, this grinder comes by default with a short hopper (approximate capacity is 400 grams), and the taller commercial hopper is available separately.

What sets this grinder apart from the myriad of other full sized commercial options? Performance, refinement, longevity and value.

To put into perspective the amount of work this grinder is capable of, it’s rated to grind up to 22lbs of coffee per hour. The reason for this is the pairing of its 65mm hardened steel burrs to a more-powerful-than-average 500w motor. This grinder has been designed with a focus on grind uniformity and strength, and Eureka has been pioneering micrometric stepless adjustment since 1975. Compared to traditional adjustment where the whole top collar is rotated, the micrometric adjustment knob allows much smaller adjustments to be made and has smooth, fluid feel. This design can’t get clogged and seized with coffee grounds, and the other bonus is the Zenith can be opened for routine cleaning without affecting your grind setting (so no need to recalibrate your grind).

In addition to a more precise and refined grind adjustment, the Zenith has further adjustability to create a customized grind experience. The dispensing chute can be raised or lowered to direct the flow of grounds into the portafilter basket, and the portafilter holder can also be adjusted to accommodate different models. The single and double doses can be programmed from one to 20 seconds, allowing you to dispense your grounds consistently (and hands free with the portafilter holder).

The Zenith 65E has been designed with a focus on grind uniformity and strength, and that solidity can be sensed through every feature and detail. Its 25 pound weight inspires complete confidence, and at $999 this is the highest performing, most durable model and best value we’ve yet found for a cafe spec grinder.
