    Need-To-Know

    What is it?

    The Lucca A53 Mini espresso machine is custom produced by La Spaziale specifically for Clive, based on the sturdy the Vivaldi II espresso machine platform. It's a dual boiler, reservoir only, vibratory pump machine with a saturated group head design. It also features volumetric shot dosing, as well as an optional shot timer and pre-infusion chamber.

    Who is it for?

    The home-barista who wants every tool a cafe has to pull perfect, consistent shots with enough power to pound out cappuccinos for the next dinner party. You want an espresso machine that offers looks as well as drinks and easily fits under any cabinets with a front loading reservoir.

    Why did we make it?

    We saw a commercial machine with great in-home potential and turned it into one of the most versatile and well loved home espresso machines out there. By updating the design and interface we built a machine that makes pulling great shots easy and one we'd all be proud to have in our kitchen. We use this machine daily at Clive HQ in Portland and can assure you it will stand the test of time.
