    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.

Product Expert semi-automatic espresso machines

The Francis Francis Illy X1 Ground Red has a bronze boiler that keeps the water temperature very stable, so every cup of coffee will be equally warm. In addition, this bronze boiler is a lot less sensitive to limescale buildup, which makes it a lot more durable than a stainless-steel heating system. Thanks to the heating plate on top of the machine, you'll always drink an espresso at the right temperature. With this espresso machine, you can brew an espresso to your taste, because it's you who decides how long to keep the water dripping and how much coffee you use per cup. In the mood for a cappuccino or latte macchiato? Using the steam pipe, you can froth milk for one yourself. Use the hot water function to make a cup of tea.

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