X1 Espresso Machine. Sturdy, easy to use, and offering a “retro-futuristic” design, the X1 features the Easy Serving Espresso system (ESE) for making stupendous coffee using pre-ground, single servings of espresso coffee packed in filter paper. An additional brewing handle allows for use of pre-ground espresso, and a steamer arm froths milk for cappuccinos. High-quality construction includes a brass broiler for thermal stability, a chrome-plated brass brewing head and a commercial-diameter brewing handle. More than an everyday-routine machine, it’s a countertop beauty that celebrates the joy of living…and a great cup of coffee. Made in Italy. 9-3/4Lx10-1/4Wx13H. Bright and boldly colored, this espresso machine from FrancisFrancis! is for those who relish sleek, modern design in their kitchen and cheerful colors in their decor. Leave it out on the counter, as it’s too heavy to move around much. Besides, part of the fun is looking at it. The machine is 10-by-12 inches in overall size and has an instrument panel look on the front: flip switches, pilot lights, and a temperature gauge to allow for more precise temperature control, which helps prevent overheating the espresso. There’s also a pull-out drawer in the bottom section to house the drip grill, a removable plastic bin at the back for the water supply, a built-in cappuccino feature, and a circular wire holder on top for warming inverted coffee cups.This machine is designed for use with prepackaged coffee “pods,” specifically Easy Serving Espresso (ESE) pods, or with regular ground coffee–handles for both are included. –Marcie BovetzEditor’s note: This item may arrive with water inside from the manufacturer’s pressure test. This is a normal occurrence and doesn’t point to a problem with the machine.From the ManufacturerThe X1 was industrial designer Luca Trazzi’s first espresso coffee machine.
