PANNARELLO STEAM WAND
Stainless-steel steam wand makes steaming and frothing a breeze. Detaches for easy cleanup.
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 iperEspresso automatically pulls water into the boiler to prevent it from boiling dry, which could damage the machine.
Machine goes into power-save mode and automatically shuts off when not in use.
Warm cups are essential for producing the most flavorful espresso with thick, caramel-colored crema. The X1 iperEspresso warms up to six espresso cups on the top of the machine, with a chic metal railing to hold them in place.

This may come as no surprise when you learn that Francis Francis machines are brought to you by illy, the celebrated Italian espresso coffee served in the finest restaurants and caf és and enjoyed by coffee connoisseurs worldwide.
Founded in 1933 by Francesco Illy, illycaff è produces and sells a unique blend of high-quality coffee made from nine types of pure Arabica beans. A careful balance of ingredients from South and Central America, India, and Africa creates the unmistakable illy flavor—always identical in any espresso cup, wherever it is drunk around the world. Based in Trieste, Italy, illycaffè is led by chairman and CEO Andrea Illy, the third generation of the Illy family.
Today, the illycaffè group helps develop the global market and culture of coffee by working on all the factors that go into the perfect cup of espresso: the blend, the machines, the preparation, the training of specialized bar staff and even the design of bars and venues where people can enjoy drinking coffee. The forward-thinking company promotes and disseminates the culture of coffee by continually reinventing tradition.
