  • Summary: I have had this machine for 8 years now. They look great and mine still makes great coffee (I use lavazza). The problems I have had are temperature gauge going twice (costly to post to be repaired). The second is the paint chipping.

There are some pretty dim reviews on the X1

  • Summary: There are some pretty dim reviews on the X1. In order to put them into perspective here goes! I've used an X1 for 5 years and it is still going strong. Makes great espresso as long as you follow the following (easy!) rules. 1. Use fine ground (espresso) coffee or grind it yourself to a fine grind.

UK mains contact not included!

JOHN HALLBERG, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Our old and trustworthy Francis Francis machine was getting a bit senile so we decided to order a new one. Very nice looking etc but the wrong power cord for the UK. There is no interchangeable cord on the new model like it was on the old one.

It is just over a year since I bought this and it is still GREAT!

Anna G, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: This is the best coffee machine I have ever had. Granted it is the only one I have had but it is so PERFECT. The coffees it makes are delicious. The only thing I would say about it is that it takes a while to get the hang of but there are plenty of youtube how to videos that help.

Long-term review - 8 years with a Francis Francis X1: update after getting a new one!

Zebrasoma, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: First, my old X1 was a pale blue one (new one - see below - dark blue), but I've entered the review here on the almond one as this has most reviews of any colour, so I guess more people will see it.
