What is the iperEspresso Capsule system?

The innovative iperEspresso capsule system makes café quality espresso with ease Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso capsule system uses a, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, long-lasting crema. And the capsules make for quick and easy clean up.

Francis Francis X7.1 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A morning timesaver! I've had the X7.1 for a few years and it's my best friend and timesaver (lifesaver?) in the morning before I head to work. It's super easy to use and takes just a few seconds to warm up and be ready to go. Pop in a capsule, push a button and you are done! I also live in a small New York apartment and it looks nice (I have the red one, love it!) and is just the right size for my kitchen with limited counter space! Milk steaming feature is easy too...just push the steam button and steam milk. You will need a nice metal steaming pitcher to get the job done right. Do yourself a favor and buy some nice porcelain cups to drink your espresso/cappuccinos out of...it makes all the difference in the morning and makes you feel a bit spoiled! :) TIP: If you have any trouble getting it to work after a long period of not using or first time use be sure to use the steam wand feature to get some water running through the pipes...like warming up your car on a cold day. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Perfect Expresso & Steamed Milk!! I had a Pasquini Livitia but my movers broke it last month. I had this machine to take to our lake house. Instead, I opened the box and used it for the first time. Presto -easiest to use! perfect crema, 3 heat settings It is wonderful!! If you are a coffee snob you won't be disappointed in cup after perfect cup! I will never go back to the other $1200 machine. This was fast and no mess. Illy is amazing with their machines and coffee.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful machine, but could be more funtional The machine is quite attractive, but was disappointed that Illy did not import the lavender machines to the USA as that was my favorite color. I wish it had an option for a long espresso as I have to do it twice to get the cup size I prefer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 7 Bersus 8 Compared to the 8 model, the 7 is cumbersome and clumsy to use. Mediocre.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I got a lemon. It takes 20-30 minutes to make an espresso, and it comes out bad. Always errors.

Can this espresso machine be used with my own ground beans, or does it have to be used with the pre-filled capsule?  Thanks.

Asked by: Mihailo
The X7.1 machine uses only the iperespresso capsules.

We see exclamation mark be on after we use about 1 year. What does that mean?

Asked by: Coffeeholic
The exclamation mark means your machine needs to be descaled. We recommend using the Dezcal tablet once a month and Cafiza powder to clean the head of the machine and handle (coffee residue tends to build up under the metal screen in the handle). You may need to decalcify more or less often depending on how frequently you use your machine and the mineral composition of the water you are using.
