The Francis Francis Y1.1 Iperespresso Capsule Machine is like a Rubik's Cube of delicious espresso. The straight lines and sleek aluminum and tempered glass casing house illy's patented iper capsule technology which uses the 100% Arabica coffee you've grown to love. The brew process incorporates pre-infusion and 19 BAR pressure extraction from each capsule for full-bodied espressos or lungos. The Y1.1 is extremely easy to use - simply insert your favorite illy iperespresso capsule into the machine, touch the espresso or lungo icon, and in seconds you'll be enjoying a tasty shot.

Pros
  • Compact - This low-profile machine is perfect to tuck under low kitchen cabinets.
  • Easy to Clean - The tempered glass surface cleans up beautifully with a damp cloth.
  • Adjustable Height Drip Tray - You can fit up to a 5.5 inch cup below the brew head.
Cons
  • No Milk Steaming Functionality - You'll need to purchase a milk frother separately if you want to enjoy cappuccinos and lattes.
  • No Cup Warmer - While the glass surface is perfect for cup storage, we wish it also performed as a cup warmer.
  • Small Water Tank - At 23.6 ounces, you'll be filling up the water tank often.

How Does it Compare?

The Y.1.1 has a modernist design and no steam wand. The X7.1 has a traditional espresso machine shape and steam wand functionality.

Tips and Tricks

Run water through the brew head before extracting your first beverage (and to warm your cup!) to make sure your shot is steamy. This process gets pressurized water splattering everywhere but is still recommended, just keep a soft cloth nearby.

Yvonne V: The Y1.1 is a newer version of the Y1 and the major difference is that it has presets for a short or long pull - the Y1 does not have presets - you have to hold down the button until desired pull is obtained and then release the button. Jun 14, 2014

Teri KStaff: I am not sure what the features of the Francis Francis Y1 are since we don't offer that machine, but it does look pretty similar to the Y1.1. This Y1.1 is a pretty straightforward little pod machine, and will yield great results. My best guess is that the Y1.1 is a newer update to the Y1, which could be an older machine. Sorry I can't be of greater assistance than this! Nov 29, 2013

I am enjoying the Illy dark roast espresso. It has a lot of flavor and very little bitterness. I would [say] the Y1.1 is an improvement over the Nespresso machines in terms of taste and flavor.

I am very pleased with the purchase.

My wife and I love the y1. This is our first venture into the world of Espresso. We paired this machine with a Capresso FrothPro and the resulting Lattes and Cappuccinos are great. I think these are two of the best purchases I have ever made.

We are really big fans of Illy coffee. This model does not have the automatic shutoff or the programmable volume, but it is very easy to turn the switch on and off for each shot. Illy USA recommends turning the machine off when not in use, rather than leaving it on all day, like I was doing.
