Great but needs knowledge

  • Summary: The machine is great, it looks great and if you like the idea of playing 'barista', you'll enjoy it. If you want to press a button and have good coffee, go for the X7 or similar. This machine requires a bit of knowledge and patience.

So far so good.

Mr. John R. Dwyer "Johnny O'Dwyer", Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

Francis Francis X1 is ace!

Mr. P. Campbell, Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: I disagree with Caramac girls review. My Cappuccino cups fit fine under the spout and the plastic pouring spouts also fit properly. It looks cool, makes great coffee and the frother/ milk heater is more powerful than some. Buy it.

dream machine

Mrs. J. S. Gapper "style monster", Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: Having long wished for a francis francis machine i am not disappointed. Well built sturdy machine that produces coffee that village neighbours and friends come round for. Steamer wand produces good froth and provided you choose your milk jug wisely there is plenty of room for frothing.I have cheated...

JJ, Amazon
27 February 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...

Francis, Francis X1

victoria hvidbjerg, Amazon

  • Summary: Francis, Francis X1 makes great tasting coffee. It's a bit noisy, but the coffee is worth all the decibels. Remember to get a decent coffee grinder as well, though. Good espresso requires correctly ground coffee.

Fantastic machine!

caveatemptor, Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Gaggia Classic which broke after a year of regular use. I found the Gaggia a bit plasticky and rather dated-looking but it worked OK, until it broke, obviously. Clearly with all these machines there's a reliability issue which can crop up if you're unlucky.
