Pros and cons

According to our semi-automatic espresso machine expert
  • Pros:
    Thanks to the high-end build quality, it has a longer lifespan than other piston machines.
  • Pros:
    Use the heating plate to preheat your cups, to keep an espresso from cooling down too fast.
  • Pros:
    With the hot water function, you can easily make a cup of tea or preheat your cup.
  • Con:
    Note: it takes time and patience to learn how to make flavorful coffee, and it's a lot harder than with a fully automatic espresso machine.
  • Con:
    You'll have to buy a bean grinder before you can use it, since it's not included.
Product Expert semi-automatic espresso machines

The Illy X1 Ground Black has a bronze boiler that keeps the water temperature very stable so that every cup of coffee is equally warm. This bronze water heater is also less sensitive to limescale and therefore a lot more durable than a stainless steel heating system. Thanks to the hotplate on top of the machine you always drink an espresso at the right temperature. With this espresso machine you make an espresso to your taste. You decide how long you want the water to run and how much coffee you use per cup. Do you fancy a cappuccino or latte macchiato? With the steam pipe you froth milk yourself for this. Use the hot water function to make a cup of tea.

Tip: don't forget to purchase a separate coffee grinder for making coffee with freshly ground beans.
