This one is also designed by Luca Trazzi. The Francis Francis X8 iperEspresso machine brings you bold shape and true Italian coffee flavor. For those who like the first-rate coffee in style, the X8 delivers just that – a velvety smooth, one-touch espresso with a rich, long lasting crema. Just like Francis Francis X7, the X8 uses only illy iperEspresso capsules for incredibly aromatic and robust espresso. Unlike many conventional one-stage systems, the X8 iperEspresso utilizes an innovative, patented two-stage process to create a truly full-bodied, intense and lasting coffee taste. And with extraction taking place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact making for easy cleaning.
Main features of this retro looking yet quite high-tech Italian-made espresso machine include:
– simple LED display
– auto-frothing wand
– manual shut off for controlling cup volume
– automatic decalcification program
– stainless steel-lined aluminum thermal block
– 22 ounce water tank
– 15 bar pump
You can buy Francis Francis X8 iperEspresso machine for $445 USD.
