Francis Francis for Illy X7, Perfect espresso every time

Coffee Capsule Machines
1

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.

Made a bad mistake by buying a replacement secondhand machine from a well known auction site. Buy cheap buy twice they say. Anyway, found this one at a good price here. It looks fantastic and works like a dream. The dark roast capsules are our favourite. So quick, to get a perfect coffee. It also came with a variety of different capsules to try.

An excellent machine at a good price. I purchased this as a secondary coffee machine for my office. I have a spare table to put this on but no sink, so it was vital that the machine produced great tasting coffee with minimal mess. I have to say i am hugely impressed with this machine. The coffee is of excellent quality and the espresso has a good depth of flavour with a thick cream. It is at least as good as what you get in most high street coffee shops and in my opinion far exceeds the quality of nespresso, which i always found pleasant enough but slightly lacking in flavour. I’ve also been very impressed with the milk wand, which is a “panarello” type. If you’re not sure what this is, do a little googling. It’s essentially a small device which takes some of the guess worth out of steaming milk. Some technique is still involved, but you should be able to get good results for a cappuccino or latte very quickly and easily.

Great machine if you want good coffee. Amazing coffee and for the price the machine is so good. Sometimes water may leak a tiny amount at back but it is really good and even nespresso machines leak a tiny amount as well.

A delight to operate and look at. . Some of the reviews here say it might develop problems, but so far it’s fantastic. I can really kid myself i’m making genuine italian coffee by using a handle and group head, without the mess and inconsistency you usually get. Iperespresso (i prefer media tostatura) always makes an excellent coffee with a bar-quality crema. A coffee costs me $1aud which is a lot more than nespresso etc, but it is far superior. I really only drink ristretto so i can’t really comment on the milk frothing ability, though it looks a bit slow and clumsy in videos. And the italian design is an extra bonus. Be aware though, the machine is mainly plastic. And if you want your coffee really hot (i don’t mind it a bit cooler) you need to heat the cups.

Great quality coffee, greta design and no fuss. Had a number of pod machines, best hand down.

Makes lovely coffee – but the machine itself started shedding screws from under the main body after a month of use. And, despite having descaled it regularly, it has slowed down to the point where i have to wait about 3 minutes for it to press one cup of espresso out of it – and that’s having waited for the water to heat. I think illy quality control has been sleeping of late.

Makes lovely illy coffee, easy to clean. Arrived very quickly with free coffee capsules that are not out of date, as other people reported having. Seems easy to use, you just have to prepare the coffee first before using the steamer to heat the milk, otherwise its too hot to go back to using the coffee capsules.

Easy to use, great coffee. . The machine replaces, like for like, one that we had which finally died after several years of constant use, so we expect this one to be just as good. Makes the coffee that we like very easily what ever one you choose.

Excellent espresso but expensive capsules. Does make excellent espresso. Longer drinks take a bit more practice in terms of your own preference for the balance of expressed volume plus hot water. The over-riding problem is the heavy cost of the special capsules. Illy should work to reduce this. Need to get a mixed selection of capsules and try different beans as there can be quite a difference in taste and suitability between long and short drinks. Five stars if capsules were cheaper.
