We haven’t tried it yet, but illycaffè’s promise with the X7.1 is consistently good coffee without the fuss.

illycaffè has also infused the X7.1 with user-friendly features like an analogue display and a versatile steam wand that you can use to froth milk or heat water for tea.

The Iperespresso system is the heart of the machine, producing high-quality coffee while keeping cleaning and maintenance to a minimum.

The design is the brainchild of Luca Trazzi, an internationally acclaimed architect and industrial designer. Its distinctive, sinuous lines and vintage inspiration have already made it a classic. Throw in the hot pink and you’ve got quite a combination.

It brewed joy quicker than a blink.
