Eventually get a nice coffee but leaks badly when using the ESE pods

Ess Adam, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: Looks great in kitchen and after a bit of trial and error trying different makes of ground espresso coffee I can get a decent espresso using the ground coffee holder. The ESE pod holder on the other hand has been a pain from day one - I use Illy's own ESE pods but nearly every time I do, hot water...

Good for espresso, bad for steaming milk (and customer service)

T. Wilhelm, Amazon
17 March 2012
  • Summary: I've been a faithful FrancisFrancis user for years. I loved my X1, but it needed repairs. Since Francis Francis has been taken over by Illy, their customer service has become nonexistent, so I haven't been able to get the parts I need to fix it.

Erratic delivery

M Roberts, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchase this machine on the basis of the excellent reviews it received. It's a lovely looking machine and gives you the impression that you are a bit of a "barista" when you clamp the pod into the machine.

Frustrating

MR A J COULTER, Amazon
27 September 2012
  • Summary: I don't tend to write reviews but there are a couple of flaws in my opinion on this machine. Before I start, I would say that whilst the illy ( only ) capsules that come with this machine are at an above average price the coffee is first class, which is the main reason for this purchase.
