Don’t be surprised if guests start snapping pictures of your X1 Trio E.S.E. machine. Architectural and home furnishing magazines regularly do. A striking yet clean design by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi may have something to do with it.
In the cup, there’s yet more beauty. The X1 makes preparing an espresso sized as you prefer a simple pleasure: ristretto (short), regular or lungo (long). One slight turn of the filter system, and the choice is yours.
Add the sheer simplicity of illy’s pioneering E.S.E. (“Easy Serving Espresso”) pod system, and you have it all: café-quality espresso with remarkable convenience. Each E.S.E. filter pod contains just the right measure of expertly ground and tamped illy coffee — a singular blend of nine, optimal quality Arabica beans, sourced from four continents.
With a steaming wand for cappuccino and automatic descaling for minimal maintenance, there’s yet more to envy. Choose the hue that fits you best: red, white, black, stainless steel, almond, yellow, orange or blue.
