LUCCA A53 Direct Plumb Espresso Machine

What is it?

Produced by La Spaziale exclusively for our partner company Clive coffee, based on the sturdy Vivaldi II commercial espresso machine platform. It's a dual boiler, direct plumb espresso machine with a rotary pump and a saturated group head design. It also features volumetric shot dosing, programmable pre-infusion, as well as an optional shot timer. It also comes equipped with 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 home barista who wants commercial quality to pull perfectly extracted shots every day with commercial power that blows minds by dishing out cappuccinos after americano when friends and family are in town. All this in an espresso machine that is reliable, easy to use, and looks great on your countertop.

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. Whether you're serving the morning rush or in a rush to get to work the A53 will have you covered for every possible occasion with great shots and looks to spare. We use this machine daily at Clive HQ in Portland and can assure you it will stand the test of time.

Lucca Espresso Tamper

Espresso tampers are an important tool for the barista, used to evenly press down finely ground coffee before pressurized water is applied. New from LUCCA and built exclusively for Clive, this tamper stands up to commercial use. We love its tall base, which makes it easy to feel for a level tamp.

Lucca Frothing Pitcher

New from LUCCA, this 10 oz. steaming pitcher gives you the control and precision needed to pour the perfect latte art. With internal level indicators, this pitcher ensures the perfect measurement every time. 

Lucca Corner Tamping Mat

Keep your countertops safe from gouges and your portafilter steady while you tamp with our durable, FDA silicone corner mat. 

Cafelat Knock Box

Discard your puck in this durable knock box - it may be small, but it can comfortably hold 10 coffee pucks.

Eureka Precision Scale

The Eureka Precision Scale is small but mighty. Its easy-to-read LCD screen helps you simultaneously time your extractions and measure your shots accurately within a tenth of a gram. It is smart, compact, and can easily fit on an espresso machine’s drip tray. Easy to use, the Eureka Precision Scale has two buttons 1 turns the scale on and to tare, and the other is for the timer function. The espresso scale is the perfect tool to help you build an espresso recipe and help you grow with your setup.
