Perfect Espresso Coffee

Rego, Amazon
1 January 2016
  • Summary: Whist this machine is not perhaps the simplest to use it does make the most wonderful coffee. The construction of the machine is good and solid, and I would say is made to last, hopefully for many years of service.

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.

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.

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

Anna G, Amazon

  • 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.

Fantastic machine!

caveatemptor, Amazon

  • 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.

Francis Francis X1 is ace!

Mr. P. Campbell, Amazon
27 July 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.
