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. ( I use a £20 Turkish hand coffee ginder) 2. Use a measure so you put the correct quantity of coffee into the holder. 3.

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

  • 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.

  • Summary: This is my forth espresso machine i have tried capsule and full automatic machine. But nothing like this. I would like suggest for all before start using manual machine watch and learn the technic of making espresso and frothing milk, there are many videos in the YouTube can halp. One more thing, having good coffee beans grinder will make big different.

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. It doesn't mean you have to know beforehand, but you have to be aware that you'll take a while until you drink good coffee.

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!

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.

dream machine

Mrs. J. S. Gapper "style monster", Amazon
20 January 2012
  • 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 by elevating the machine on a plinth so i can access all parts more easily.Delighted with purchase.
