This smart and sturdy X1 Ground Espresso machine was designed by Luca Trazzi for the Italian label Illy.
The story of Illy dates all the way back to 1933 when Hungarian Francesco Illy established a cafe in the city of Trieste. In 1994, the firm developed its own machines to allow consumers to brew their own authentic espresso at home. With a focus on convenience and simplicity of use, the firm offers machines that either take capsules or ground coffee.
Fashioned from durable stainless steel, the X1 Ground Espresso machine can prepare two shots of espresso at the same time, making it ideal for couples who enjoy a coffee together. The device features a sophisticated control system that ensures pressure and temperature are always optimal to brew up a perfect espresso. It also features a steam nozzle for frothing milk. Measuring 26cm in width, 30cm in height, and with a depth of 25cm, the compact unit sits snugly on regular shelves or countertops. Offered in a choice of breezy colours to enhance any kitchen, the X1 Ground Espresso machine comes with a 250g can of ground coffee.
