Posted: 10/21/09

Francis Francis X7 in Red and BlackThe FrancisFrancis line is one of my personal favorites. Perhaps it's due to my affinity for a certain Steven Spielberg movie from the early 80s—every time I look at a distinctive FrancisFrancis, I can't help but picture a loveable animatronic alien squirming in Drew Barrymore's little arms. And, like ET, the X7 for Grounds and Pods is a curious little thing.

Not just an espresso machine, this unit can also be adapted to brew pods, giving users the ultimate in choice and flexibility. For the traditionalists, the FrancisFrancis X7's ground system brews customizable espresso to meet even the most exacting specifications. Those who enjoy the convenience of single-serve espresso makers can indulge in pre-dosed and weighed ESE pods, perfectly prepared to deliver great tasting, hassle-free coffee.
