Features & Functionality of the Francis Francis X7 Espresso Machine

  • 15 BAR Pump: Extraction happens at 15 BAR pump pressure for ideal flavor.
  • Cup Warmer: The top part of the machine serves as a mini cup warming station.
  • Simplistic: Easily activate brewing and steaming with 2 handy buttons prominently located on the central display.
  • Acoustic Alarm: This machine sounds a friendly chime when ready to brew or steam.
  • Brew the Ground Coffee You Love: This version of the X7 allows you to brew your favorite ground coffee. Great for those that don't want to brew using an E.S.E pod or capsule.
  • Traditional Steam Wand: Steam like the pros with this fully functioning steam wand.
  • Smart Machine!: The X7 keeps track of its overall use and based on the amount of brew and steam cycles it prompts you to descale with its flashing triangular icon located on the front of the machine.
Pros
  • Just Right - This machine has all the functionality you need to brew a delicious espresso or fantastically froth a milk based drink.
  • Steal of a Deal - Considering all the capabilities of this machine, the refurbished model will make any financially savvy person jump for joy!
Cons
  • Small Cup Warmer - The design of the X7 makes the cup warmer a little small and inconvenient. The warmer has the ability to heat a few small shot glasses, but anything bigger is not ideal.
  • Retro - We love the retro design, but others may find it a bit much for their decor.

How Does it Compare?

This version of the X7 only brews ground coffee and is not built to brew E.S.E pods or capsules.

Tips and Tricks

The X7 stays ahead of the game by not allowing you to brew immediately after steaming, as the boiler is usually too hot and can compromise the coffee's flavor. The cooling phase can take up to 10 minutes, but you can decrease the wait time by turning the steam knob counterclockwise to generate steam until the X7 sounds a short beep and the coffee switch lights up.


The single portafilter basket measures in at 52mm and the double basket measures in at 56mm. If you enjoy a good designer tamper, be sure to purchase the correct size!
