So far so good.

Mr. John R. Dwyer "Johnny O'Dwyer", Amazon
23 March 2012
  • Summary: I was already using an espresso machine which, although a cheap model, produced some quite reasonable coffee. However, I was still on a quest to find a machine which produced a coffee as good, if not better than the coffee I have enjoyed in cafés and restaurants. Some of the top-rated Italian machines were a little beyond my reach costwise until I found Amazon selling the Francis Francis X1 at half price!

Love it!

butchersboy, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: This is our first "proper" coffee machine having relied on the good old stove top espresso maker for years. We now drink more coffee than ever before! Having read reviews for this and other machines we settled on this one as most reviewers praised the quality of the coffee it produces. They were right, the quality is superb.

Buy this! Makes coffee as good as it looks

JJ, Amazon
23 January 2009
  • Summary: We have had a FrancisFrancis in almond for 8 months and think it is superb. I makes great coffee, is very easy to use, and is great value for money - it may seem expensive but for the quality of the build, and the coffee it makes, it is worth paying the extra over cheaper models (and is a lot less than other top-of-the-range machines). We love the retro design and it looks fantastic in the kitchen.

Top Coffee!

FadeToGrey, Amazon
21 April 2008
  • Summary: I saw these in Italy about 5 or 6 years ago, and bought one on my return to England. I've never had any issues with cup sizes (I use regular espresso or cappucino cups), and mine came with a metal spout, which has always fitted without any problem. It still makes fantastic coffee after 5 years. If/when it does finally throw in the towel, I'll be replacing it with one exactly the same.
