I was wondering if I have to change the settings on my Illy Gaggia Machine for this product to get a 2oz pull? It only brews 1oz just like all the other cartridges and I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if my machine is defective. Thanks!

mjackson ♦ Kathy,
You can change the volume of espresso that is brewed. Then you can set it for 2 ounces. Here is a video to watch that will help you. http://www.wholelattelove.com/Gaggia/gaggia_for_illy.cfm

The product description says it's for the francis francis x7 machine, but the picture looks exactly like the ones for the x8 machine. Is it so? - can this be used with the x8? same for the other cans of illy pods listed (dark. medium roast etc) - are they the same as the pods for the x8? thanks.

Mike Russo ♦ Emily...Thanks for your interest in the Illy iper Espresso Lungo capsules. You will be able to use these capsules in your Francis Francis X8, and not the Illy pods. Thanks.

Are these capsules appropriate for brewing 10oz coffees?

mjackson ♦ Brian,
You can brew a longer shot but in order to make a ten ounce coffee you will actually want to make an americano by adding hot water the the Lungo shot. It then will make a pretty good cup of coffee.
