5.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee from a beautiful machine, 6 Oct 2012
By 
This review is from: Francis Francis for Illy X7.1 Coffee Machine, Red (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this machine after visiting my Italian friends who are always raving about it... in addition to great coffee it is very beautiful and makes a great centrepiece for my kitchen. The steamer is much better than any other I have tried both for steaming and ease of cleaning. The x7.1 has a better steamer than my friends x7.0 (which is metal and really hard to clean)... for even better milk foaming I found that removing the outer plastic layer on the arm which I think is there for safety so watchout!

I've been using this for 6 months, got through ~150 capsules, without issue. The only odd thing is that it doesn't always deliver the same quantity of coffee, although I think this is due to variation in the capsules rather than the machine. I descaled recently as I live in a hard water area, but I don't think it needed it... descaling is easy as it has an automatic program, although I found I needed to put in more than the litre of water it recommends.
