X1 Anniversary E.S.E. Pod & Ground Coffee Machine

Illy’s new X1 ESE/Ground Coffee Espresso Machine is designed to make the experience of brewing simple while still crafting delicious drinks. You can easily choose between ESE pods or your own ground coffee by switching between the two included baskets. The X1 makes it convenient whether you’re trying to make your morning cup quickly with a pod or if you want to take time pulling a shot.

Features and Performance

The X1 has been designed with user experience in mind. The cup holder is easy to adjust depending on whether you brew into a taller mug or a shorter espresso cup, so you can reduce the heat loss and potential for splashing your coffee while brewing. The built-in steam wand can be used to steam milk for espresso drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, and flat whites. The steam wand also dispenses hot water, making it easy to craft Americanos as well.

Another benefit of the X1 is that it is compatible with both ESE pods and your own ground coffee. Illy’s ESE pods are now compostable, so you can remain environmentally conscious while still benefiting from the convenience of using a pod to make your espresso in the morning. To switch between using a pod or ground coffee, you just have to change out the basket you’re using in your portafilter.

The style of the X1 Espresso Machine in Black is inspired by 60s industrial design, and the unique retro style will still fit in in a modern kitchen with the features and functionality of a modern machine. The new X1 is also designed to be more eco-friendly with features such as an optional eco mode and an automatic shut-off to reduce the X1’s energy consumption.

Why You Should Get It

If you’re looking for an espresso machine that will let you brew with pods as well as with your own ground coffee, the new X1 is right for you. With a stylish design, an easy method of switching between pods and ground coffee, and detailed features to improve user experience, the X1 is a great choice for any espresso lover.

Eco-Friendly Features

Illy designed the X1 with sustainability in mind. Not only does the machine have an optional Eco Mode, but it also comes in 100% recycled paper packaging. Illy made sure that every part of the X1 was designed to be environmentally friendly, so you can know that you’re helping the environment while enjoying your morning espresso.

Retro-Inspired Design

The modular, 60s style design makes the X1 unique while still keeping the machine small and convenient enough for any coffee setup.

Works With ESE Pods and Ground Coffee

Enjoy the convenience of choosing between ESE pods or brewing in a more traditional way with the X1. Simply switch the portafilter basket to change between brew methods.

Steam Wand to Craft Beverages

With the steam wand on the X1, you have the ability to steam milk for lattes, cappuccinos, flat whites, and macchiatos. You can also dispense hot water for Americanos, pre-heating your mug before brewing, and more.
