Product Description

The Francis Francis Y5 Duo has arrived to pull double duty and ensure your caffeinated needs are met! With the option to brew espresso or coffee with one touch of a button, you're never far away from a tasty cup of joe or shot of espresso.

Features & Functionality of the Francis Francis Y5 Duo IperEspresso & Iper Coffee Capsule Machine

  • Pick Your Brew: The Y5 Duo allows you to use either their beloved IperEspresso capsules, or their new Iper Coffee Capsules for one shot of espresso or a full cup of freshly brewed coffee.
  • LED Touch Interface: Depending on which capsule you're brewing, touch the illuminated espresso or coffee button for the caffeinated kick of your choosing.
  • Programmable: Both the espresso and coffee dosing options can be programmed to dispense your desired volume.
  • Energy Saver: After 30 minutes of inactivity, the Y5 Duo automatically enters power saving mode.
  • Adjustable Cup Height: Utilize the cup rack for smaller shot glasses and flip up for larger mugs.
  • Water Reservoir: Don't let the small stature fool you! This machine boasts a 30 ounce removable water tank for continuous brewing and less refilling.
  • Capsule Drawer: The Y5 Duo's Used Capsule Compartment can hold up to 10 used capsules.
How Does it Compare?

How does the Y5 Duo differ from the original Y5, you ask? It's all in the Iper Coffee Capsules! The previous Y5 only offered the ability to brew espresso shots with their IperEspresso capsules. The Y5 Duo not only allows you to brew espresso shots with their IperEspresso capsules, but you can also brew a full cup of coffee with their new Iper Coffee Capsules. Winning!

Hi - Just bought the Y5. Is there a way to return the volume to the factory setting? If not, can you tell me what the factory setting is for espresso (left button)? And if you have a preference for how much to get out of a capsule (1 oz, 2 oz, or somewhere in between) I would appreciate your advice. Thanks!
A shopper on May 26, 2015
Best Answer: Factory settings indicate average times to brew the best illy coffee and are: / Strong coffee 16 sec / Espresso coffee 22 sec / Long espresso coffees 30 sec . Furthermore, we recommend to use “blue” capsules (“long espresso”) to brew long coffees with a maximum extraction time of 30 sec.

Is it as good or better than nespresso?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2015
Best Answer: That's subjective. I guess it comes down to whether you prefer Illy pods or Nespresso capsules.

Can the Illy iper pods be used in Nespresso machines?
Tammy O on Aug 9, 2016
Best Answer: Nope! Iper espresso pods are larger and more cylindrical than Nespresso pods and will not fit.

Hope this helps!

How would you compare the espresso capability (ipercapsule) of the Y5 to the Y5 Duo? Do you feel like they 'sacrificed' quality of the espresso side in order to allow for a brewed coffee capsule? Thanks!
A shopper on Jul 28, 2015
Best Answer: Honestly, it's equal. They did not sacrifice the quality of the espresso by allowing coffee capsule capability.
