Rosalind, London Honest and fair

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Lovely to look at easy to clean and prepare the coffee and the coffee tastes good.
Bad points:
Steam wand is rubbish takes a long time to heat milk.
I have used various jugs till froth spills over and the milk is still not hot.
When I do manage to get it hot enough the foam is bubbly rather than thick creamy foam.
I'm used to using coffee machines but one this has let me down

Manufacturer's Description

The new X7.1 iperEspresso machine combines all the features of the current model with advanced technology including steel internal thermoblock, and a panarello steam wand that froths milk for thick, delicious cappuccino and latte. Designed by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi to work exclusively with illy iperEspresso capsules, the striking X7.1 makes café-quality espresso and adds a strong visual statement to any kitchen.

Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso capsule system uses an innovative, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, long-lasting crema. And because extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact making for easy clean up.

New Enhancements:

  • Steel internal thermoblock
  • Pannarello steam wand froths milk easily for thick, frothy cappuccino and latte
  • Auto-stop feature assures perfect volume in the cup
  • Automatic decalcification indicator
  • Power save automatically switches machine off after 30 minutes

Additional Product Features:

  • One-touch brewing cycle
  • Easy-use handle to hold iperEspresso capsule
  • Lighted central display and acoustic signals to guide user
  • No contact between machine and coffee inside the capsule for a clean system
  • 15 bar pump
  • 34 ounce water tank (approx. 22-30 servings)
  • Polycarbonate body
  • Works exclusively with illy iperEspresso capsules
