The Machine With A Dream Inside
Making café quality espresso drinks at home has never been easier.

The pannarello steam wand froths milk easily for a thick and delicious cappuccino or latte. The auto-stop feature assures perfect volume in the cup, while the pannarello steam wand froths milk for thick and delicious cappuccino and latte. Designed by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi, this striking machine adds a strong visual statement to any kitchen.
Two Stage Espresso Extraction
Designed to work exclusively with illy iper Espresso capsules, the Francis Francis X7.1 makes extraordinary espresso with one-touch convenience. Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iper Espresso Capsule system uses an innovative, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, velvety crema that lasts and lasts. The first stage, called hyper-infusion, takes place in the capsule’s iper Chamber where the coffee is infused with water under pressure, extracting more flavor and aromas than normal. In the second stage, called emulsification, pressure forces the coffee through the e-valve, where the aromatic oils are emulsified creating a dark, rich and full bodied espresso, with a crema that lasts and lasts.
One Touch Convenience
The Francis Francis X7.1 features the simplicity of a one-touch brewing system for ease of use. A user-friendly feature of this elegant machine is the central display which guides the user with the help of acoustic and lighted signals. The convenient auto-stop feature controls the volume of coffee in the cup, creating an effortless and perfect extraction. And because the extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact, making for minimal cleanup.
Stunning Sinuous Italian Design
Designed by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi, this striking machine adds a strong visual statement to any kitchen. Critics rave over the elegant design of this expertly engineered machine. Available in both red and black, the Francis Francis X7.1 has a stunning sinuous shape, sparkling lines and bright colors. Great attention is paid to even the smallest details that improve the quality of the material and components to enhance the performance of the machine.
Quick and Easy
Prepare the perfect coffee in seconds thanks to the Francis Francis X7.1’s automatic stop feature. The iperEspresso capsule system not only produces delightful espresso quickly and easily but also insures minimal clean up. The extraction takes place within the capsule which means the coffee and the coffee oils stay in your cup and don’t come in contact with your machine. The pannarello steam wand is another time saving feature that can be removed for easy cleaning. The cool down function allows you to quickly switch from making cappuccino and latte to espresso by reducing the machine temperature. The machine features a power save mode for energy efficency and an automatic decalcification program that makes the maintenance of your machine as easy as making a cup of coffee.
More Than Just Espresso
The Francis Francis X7.1 features a Steam wand that heats and froths milk at the touch of a button, creating thick luscious cappuccinos or lattes. First the Espresso: it’s the purest way to enjoy coffee, highlighting its aroma and flavor at the maximum intensity; a tiny miracle of chemistry and physics that is as much art as it is science. Second cappuccino: a favorite in coffee bars and cafés, cappuccino is easy to prepare at home once you master the finer points of steaming and frothing. A cup of cappuccino should contain one shot of espresso coffee and equal parts of steamed milk and froth. Third Cafe Latte: While holding back the milk froth, pour hot steamed milk over a shot of espresso (1oz) until the glass is filled. Top the drink with a rich layer of frothy milk. Fourth the Lungo : For those who prefer more coffee (3oz) in their cup, lungo capsules provide a unique full bodied taste experience that differs from both traditional espresso and brewed coffee.
