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.

Great

  • Summary: Bought this machine from amazon 6 months ago. Nothing to complain about. Looks great, makes great shots (one at a time!). I 'd wish all parts would be stainless steel, but the little plastic spout is doing the job for now... Would buy it again!

Seems to be a good quality machine - hope it lasts!

A. Gill, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: I'm pretty happy with my new machine - it's well built, attractive and easy to use. It also produces excellent coffee with the Illy ground coffee supplied with it. The frother seems to work well (although it does feel slightly wobbly) and with a bit of practice I'm hoping I can master it.

I like it!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: Owning one of these machines, I found a recent review totally unfair and found myself having to clarify some of the points raised. 1.Water reservoir too small - This machine is designed to make espresso coffee (30 ml a shot) not mugs of instant coffee.

Nice machine, but beware quality problems

Malcolm Page, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: I've had my X1 for a few years now. I love its looks, and it makes perfect espresso and cappuccino. But its weakness is the constant rusting of the drawer front. You could say it's the Lancia Beta of coffee-makers!

great build quality and coffee tastes fantastic.

RB, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: Almost perfect balance of cost, looks and quality. Quick and easy to set up, easy to maintain. Would have been 5 star except for one minor niggle that it is slightly awkward to use the frothing nozzle.

A bit expensive but great coffee

anon, Amazon

  • Summary: I did not purchase my Francis Francis from Amazon as it is possible to get this product cheaper from other online retailers. Keep an eye on the prices of coffee machines because apparently due to the credit crunch, we are drinking more coffee at home and the prices have gone through the roof.

Gute Maschine mit kleinen Schwächen

Manfred, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: Wir hatten bereits die Vorgängerversion und haben uns nach längerer Recherche wieder für dieses Modell entschieden, da uns das Design weiterhin sehr gefällt. Zum Vorgängermodell hat die Maschine sicher an Technik gewonnen, aber die Handhabung und gerade die Pflege ist aufwändiger geworden.

hübscher Kult

Manfred Schwarzbauer, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Die Maschine ist ein Schmuckstück, das Hantieren einfach, eine Kulthandlung. Der Kaffe wird gut und ich kann jede Espressosorte nehmen, was ein grosser Vorteil ist, nicht nur für mich-ich kann mich durch die Sorten kosten- sondern auch für die Hersteller, z.B.
