How the FrancisFrancis X1 used to be:
The FrancisFrancis X1 espresso coffee machine is the ultimate style statement for your kitchen - it's sexy, cool, looks have made it the choice for lifestyle and cookery shows, such as The Naked Chef, Gary Rhodes New British Classics, Sex and the City, Minority Report, Property Ladder, 60 Minute Makeover and Colin and Justin's How Not To Decorate.. The X1 seems to pop up on many television shows, magazine and newspaper supplements, once you own one you seem to see them everywhere.
The X1 was designed by Luca Trazzi in 1995 - his first coffee machine, and is now sold in 28 countries. The magazine WIRED described it's design as retro-futuristic.

Sturdy and easy to use, the X1 makes excellent coffee using either E.S.E pre-ground single serving "Easy Espresso System" pods, or your own blend of bean, using the ground coffee adapter. The hot water dispenser for tea, and the steam nozzle for heating/frothing milk for cappuccinos are also very easy to use. You can even warm your cups on the top of the X1.
The body of the X1 coloured machines are made of metal treated by cataforesis (rust proofing). The exception being the stainless steel machine, which is totally made and finished with stainless steel.
The X1 now uses a brass boiler an improvement for heat retention over the aluminium system previously used.
The FrancisFrancis X1 is available in many bright and exciting colours, which one will you choose?
