LUCCA A53 Mini Espresso Machine
The LUCCA A53 Mini V2 Espresso Machine is a perfect combination of both design and functionality, capturing the essence of old-world Italian heritage in a modernized package. Its compact, stainless steel form exudes elegance and fits seamlessly into any kitchen, even in the tightest of spaces due to its small footprint. The machine's dual-boiler system and the iconic E61 group head ensures that every shot of espresso is rich and flavorful, thanks to precise temperature control during both brewing and milk steaming. A thoughtfully-crafted steam wand delivers surprising power from its 1.2 liter boiler, producing velvety microfoam for lattes and cappuccinos. The machine's user-friendly, analog gauges provide a window into its performance, allowing for small changes to the boiler temperatures for further reliability. At the front of the machine, you’ll find a front-loading, generously-sized water reservoir that ensures convenience and flexibility in your brewing routine. With its automatic, 3 second pre-infusion feature and top-notch components, the LUCCA A53 Mini is a testament to La Spaziale’s commitment to the art and science of making exceptional espresso. This machine comes in two versions: the LUCCA A53 Mini V2 that runs solely on the internal reservoir, and the LUCCA A53 Mini Direct Plumb version that requires installation to a water line.
