|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!
