The FrancisFrancis! X7.1 iperEspresso, designed by Luca Trazzi, is a quintessential expression of the Italian ideal of style incorporating function. The iconic show-stopping visual appeal is not just eye candy, but the embodiment of a beautifully designed machine. It has a specific purpose; to brew great drinks using the Illy iperEspresso capsules, and it does it extremely well while looking great in any setting. 

Protected by five international patents, the heart of Illy iperEspresso is its proprietary capsule with the unique iperChamber™ where Illy coffee extraction takes place in two stages. In the first stage, hyper-infusion, hot water under ultra-high pressure mixes with the coffee under optimal conditions to enhance extraction of precious flavors and aromas, creating a richly complex flavor. In the second stage, emulsification, coffee is forced through the patented e-valve™ at the bottom of the capsule, mixing the aromatic oils with air to produce a full-bodied espresso and a thick, long-lasting velvety créma.

Capsules contain approximately seven grams of perfectly roasted and expertly ground and tamped 100% Arabica Illy coffee. Available in medium roast for a sweet, balanced, pleasantly nuanced flavor, dark roast for a more intense and robust flavor and decaffeinated.

Alex asked:

How has the X7.1 been with reliability? Are there any of the other Illy capsule machines that perform better?

Answer by mjackson:

People have been happy with the Francis Machine and they are a sister company of Illy. So it is hard to imagine of a better suited machine as it really is Illy doing all the design. I think you will be happy.
