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.

Eureka Zenith 65E

The Eureka Zenith 65E High-Speed is an exciting new tier of espresso performance and value for Clive Coffee. If you’re a coffee shop, office or home enthusiast seeking cleaner espresso flavor, the Zenith is ready to impress with faster dispensing (20 grams in 5.5 seconds!), more efficiency, less waste, and a fluffier, more uniform grind. And yes, this grinder comes by default with a short hopper, and the taller commercial hopper is available separately. Short hopper holds approximately 400 grams.

What sets this grinder apart from the myriad of other full sized commercial options? Performance, speed (of course), 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 high speed upgrade burrs to a more-powerful-than-average 510w motor. 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 down to hundredths of a second, 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.
