La Piccola - an Italian espresso machine with that extra bit of convenience

"La Piccola" by Lucaffé is a very special pad machine. A few years ago, the founder of Italian premium coffee roaster Lucaffé Gian Luca Venturelli started dispensing his espresso in ESE pods. So he prepares the required amount of ground coffee and a cup of the right grind for his next coffee break. For this, he developed the perfectly coordinated ESE pad machine - La Piccola. This is optically noble, simple and practical, and easy to use. Materials such as glass, stainless steel, and aluminum make them particularly durable and strong. Anyone who prefers a Piccola with a particularly radiant look can also buy it in gold stainless steel.

Another advantage of ESE pad machines is their size. Because they're so small and compact, not only do they fit in just about any kitchen, but you can also take them with you on your mobile home, cruise, or vacation. Here, Lucaffé has thought a step ahead and offered special protection. So if you want to protect your Piccola from possible scratches or dirt on the go, you can use the right travel bag. Made of high-quality and sturdy faux leather, it can safely transport the espresso machine, as well as hold two espresso cups and several ESE pads.
