The FrancisFrancis X1 Espresso Coffee Machine is now in it's third generation of production. The stylish design has been tweeked a little here and there, however the much admired iconic design is still there in all it's magnificence.
The updated and improved X1 model (from November 2007) uses ground coffee only. The new Ground X1 offers superior performance and produces a much improved serving of espresso and cappuccino. We've tried it! We like it! We're sure you'll be delighted too.
If you decide to purchase elsewhere (we hope you don't, but you can't win them all), please ensure you are buying the current model complete with the latest updated features and improvements (the X1 takes ground coffee only, not pods; the ESE pod option was only available on previous generations 1999-2007). Also ensure that you purchase UK specification product. If you buy from outside of the UK, FrancisFrancis have stated that warranty is valid only in the country of purchase.
The X1 has a removable 1.5 litre water reservoir, a 17 bar pump, brass boiler and steam for frothing and steaming milk. It is available in various colours, almond, red, black, deep blue, light blue, yellow, orange and is also available in stainless steel.
Colours from - £385.00, Stainless Steel - £495.00. Includes delivery to UK mainland.
