Francis Francis in Malta, the X7.1 Espresso and Cappuccino Machine

Francis Francis, the X7.1 Espresso and Cappuccino Machine in Malta combines all the features of the current model with advanced technology including steel internal thermoblock, and a panarello steam wand that froths milk for thick, delicious cappuccino and latte. Designed by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi to work exclusively with illy iperEspresso capsules, the striking Francis Francis X7.1 espresso and cappuccino machine makes café-quality espresso and adds a strong visual statement to any kitchen. Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso capsule system uses an innovative, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, long-lasting crema. And because extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact making for easy clean up. Available in red,white and black.



Established in 1933 by Francesco Illy, the company produces and markets world-wide a single, leading-quality blend of espresso coffee, made using nine types of pure Arabica. From the balance of these ingredients from South and Central America, India and Africa arises the unmistakable flavour and aroma of illy coffee, always constant in every cup and in any part of the world.

The illy blend is destined for HoReCa channels (hotels, restaurants, cafés), for consumption at home and at the office; it is available in tins, pods or capsules, according to the channel. Currently, the blend is sold in 150 countries in all five continents and is served in over 50,000 public restaurants and bars. In 2007, exports accounted for 52% of total sales.

With the aim of assuring a total and excellent experience with the cup of coffee, illy has perfected a series of elements and instruments that contribute to a perfect taste: from systems for preparing coffee and coffee machines to coffee bars – via the Espressamente illy chain of Italian style coffee bars in licensing – to training of baristas and specialized personnel at the University of coffee. illycaffè is based in Trieste and managed by the third generation of the Illy family with Andrea as chairman and CEO.
