Before buying this, i spent alot of time researching as i was very sceptical about it as it is a capsule machine. I consider myself to be quite a connoisseur, who overs the years has purchased manual espresso machines only. This time i wanted something easier and cleaner, but also the same great taste that i can get from a manual espresso machine. Having read good reviews i took the plunge and i must say it is absolutely excellent. Firstly and most importantly, it makes fantastic espresso with a perfect crema everytime. Secondly it is very quick, easy to use and clean and thirdly it looks really nice in my kitchen. There is a very good choice of coffee capsules available, from brazil to ethiopia.
Its a great coffee machine but only uses illy capsules which are very expensive 45p plus each. You can’t buy them everywhere and can’t ever get them discounted. I love the machine but wouldn’t buy again as you are locked in to expensive capsules. I have to order mine online (still at full price) as i can’t buy them within my local area.
Four happy years of classy coffee. I use a £3,500 espresso machine in my business with top quality, freshly ground coffee. I drink better espresso at home. Love the range of pods, including the monoarabica variations, that are available from espressocrazy. Yes, the steam wand is a little limiting, but i adore this machine – and have had it for nearly 4 years without any issues. Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die Francis Francis for Illy X7:
- Modern and appealing design
- No contact between the machine and coffee inside the capsule for a clean system
- 28cm W x 33.5cm D x 32cm H
- Works exclusivley with the illy iperEspresso capsules
- Includes 1 x 14 capsule can of classic illy coffee
Rather disappointed, everything fine but the milk for capuchino. ,bought as a replacement for my x7. Rather disappointed,everything fine but the milk for capuchino. Plenty of froth,in fact too much,but the milk just doesn’t get hot enough and the whole coffee experience,the best i’ve had,is spoiled.
Firstly, when the machine is working properly, the quality of the espresso produced is fantastic. Add in the functionality of the steam wand and it is possible to create many delicious coffee-based drinks in a matter of minutes – the machine also looks great. However, we are now on our third machine within 5 months. The first developed a fault which overloaded our internal power network each time it was turned on (requiring many trips to the fuse box) and the second has lost all pressure from the steam unit, resulting in a lackluster performance when it comes to steaming milk. Had this machine not have been a gift, we would have given up by now and taken a refund. Here is hoping for third time lucky.
