SWIVEL STEAM WAND
Stainless-steel steam wand features a special frothing tip. Wand moves in any direction, enabling you to whip up cappuccinos and lattes like a pro.
HOT WATER DISPENSER
Steam wand dispenses water right into your cup for delicious café Americano, tea or hot chocolate.
AUTOMATIC BOILER REFILL Unlike machines that only draw water into the boiler while brewing or steaming, the X1 automatically pulls water into the boiler to prevent it from boiling dry, which could damage the machine.
Warm cups are essential for producing the most flavorful espresso with thick, caramel-colored crema. The X1 warms up to six espresso cups on the top of the machine, with a chic metal railing to hold them in place.

I grind my own beans and found the exact grind. I pre heat stainless filter with scalding water. Run a little hot water thru machine before use. Sometimes this even fails if my beans are getting a little old. I didn't know it would be so difficult and honestly, I almost gave up a few times. Glad I didn't...it makes a decent cup
