The Francis Francis X7.1 iper machine works only with illy's revolutionary iperEspresso capsules. Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso method uses an innovative, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, velvety crema that lasts and lasts. And because extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact making for easy clean up. Designed by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi, this striking illy X7.1 IperEspresso machine adds a strong visual statement to any kitchen. Read the review of Francis Francis X7.1 iper Black here.
