    Bit of background, as everyone had their own levels of coffee needs. I drink coffee every morning. Usually espresso, sometimes a cappuccino/flat white. I've been in the hunt for a new coffee machine since my Krups one died a few months ago. I used to buy illy coffee for it but the pump was never quite strong enough for the finer ground illy. I was also tired of messing around with ground coffee first thing in the morning so was tempted by these new pod systems, but skeptical they would deliver the quality espresso I'm after.

    A couple of friends have Nespresso machines, and while the coffee is ok, its not what I'd call quality compared to a decent fresh ground brew. I was, however impressed by the cleanness and simplicity of the pod system so when I saw illy were offering their own coffee pods, i was ecsatatic. So, without wanting to spend hundreds of pounds on a machine capable of doing my beloved fresh-ground illy coffee justice, I decided iperespresso (illy's pod system) might be worth a go.

    Onto the X7.1;

    So with excitement and trepidation, I took the plunge and ordered the black X7.1 and a few cans of Standard (Red) and Lungo (Blue) pods.

    Set up:
    Machine is easy to set up. Instructions are simple. Fill the tank, Plug in, cycle some water through (just to flush out the dust!) and you're off.

    Use:
    Takes around 15 seconds to warm up and lets you know its ready with a blue light and a charming little chime. Load a pod, put you cup in place and press go. Tada! Espresso has never been easier. To steam milk, push the steamer button and once again when its ready, the steam icon wil flash blue and greet you with a friendly chime.

    This machine actually works very well, and produces great coffee when it's working properly. Unfortunately after a few months of owning this machine, it stopped working and nothing I could do would fix it, and I had to send it back to the manufacturer. They sent me a replacement machine and within a couple months it happened again. Basically the machine acts like it has blockage somewhere and water comes out the "back pressure valve" in the drip tray. Unfortunately after two failures in a row I am going to have to abandon this model.

    I bought this earlier in the year after seeing that Illy did a coffee pod system on a TV programme as this is my favourite coffee, rather than the planned purchase of a Nespresso system. I have to say that I have not been dissapointed, the Frances Frances built machine makes perfect italian coffee everytime. It also is well made, nice to touch and looks great on the kitchen counter.

    I bought this to replace an existing coffee machine which used loose coffee as I found this gave inconsistent results, depended heavily on the brand and ground size of the coffee, and it's worst feature was a milk system with a plastic nozzle that cross threaded easily making cleaning a nightmare.

    The Illy system is better in everyway, the machine is fast to heat up, creates the right amount of coffee at a single press of a button, the milk frother creates nice foam and there is no cleaning to talk of. For example the Illy nozzle simply pulls off, comes apart in to two pieces, and then you rinse through with warm soapy water.

    The whole system is so fast and so easy to use that I haven't drunk instant coffee at home in months now.

    The machine came with test pods for the Dark (Black) and normal (Red) blends, however after testing a few we found that the Longo (Blue) pods give probably the nicest coffee for a latte. We found the best deal for the coffee was to buy online from the local illy distributor as many of the other sources whilst looking cheaper charge a huge amount for postage making the price per pod overall higher.

    I recommend the purchase of a small milk jug of less then 500ml, as the 500ml one I bought is a bit too deep for the nozzle, and a thermometer as judging milk heating by time gave patchy results where as the thermometer means the right temperature everytime.

    I hope more and more people find and buy these machines, they are superb.

    This machine makes lovely coffee but having just passed the one year warranty it has broken - when switched off (but plugged in) it continues to pump water out - i..e switching off has no effect. It's a shame because the coffee it made was so nice, but I want a machine that's going to last more than a year.

    I purchase this machine on the basis of the excellent reviews it received. It's a lovely looking machine and gives you the impression that you are a bit of a "barista" when you clamp the pod into the machine. It's strictly an espresso machine (which is all it claims to be) so you can't set it to deliver a bit of extra water as I am able to do with my Nespresso machine. This is no real problem, you just have to add water from the kettle.
    The problem was that it was impossible to predict how much espresso the machine was going to deliver. It varied by a huge amount between a typical espresso size and hardly any liquid at all. This was with a brand new machine and using identical pods each time.
    The coffee was very nice when the correct amount was delivered. Something I hadn't considered when I bought the machine was the huge amount of plastic waste that the " iepresso" pods produce. I'm not a paid up member of the "Green" party but even I was feeling guilty. The pods are also expensive compared to the alternatives, especially compared to buying coffee beans or ground coffee.
    I tried my best to get the machine to function properly for a week but gave up and returned it for a refund.
    If you shop around the machine is available for £79 now which is excellent value if you get one that works properly. Even so, if you drink even an average amount of coffee you would be better off considering a more expensive machine which can use cheaper pods (ese) and ground coffee. Doing a bit of maths, four cups a day and save 25p a cup by using good quality ground beans (or about 20p a cup using good quality ese pods) and you save £365 in a year!! A good machine and grinder comes in at around £240. Think about it!
