"53mm portafilter is nothing to worry about. It's just as good (and in some ways better). It took some adjustment as far as grind setting and dialing in, but I do find myself with much less channeling when I'm dialing in and no channeling once perfectly dialed. If you're looking for a dual boiler machine, don't hesitate to consider the A53."

Need to Know

What is it?

The LUCCA A53 Mini espresso machine is custom produced by La Spaziale specifically for Clive, based on the reputable Vivaldi II espresso machine. This dual boiler machine is tank-only with volumetric shot dosing, pre-infusion, and an optional add-on shot timer. It also has Bluetooth connectivity to sync with the S1 Timer App available on Apple App Store to program automatic machine heat-up and cool-down by date and time.

Who is it for?

The LUCCA A53 Mini is for the home barista who wants a commercial experience. Its easy-to-use programmable features make pulling great shots and steaming milk back-to-back the perfect suitor for your next dinner party. If you want an espresso machine that offers commercial looks and power but need something to fit in your home, the LUCCA A53 Mini makes this easy with a small footprint and 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 assure you it will stand the test of time.
