Illy's FrancisFrancis Y1 iperEspresso machine is either a thing of beauty or confusing to people from the pictures on the way it looks. After unboxing we can safely tell you in person we love the look of this Y1 espresso maker that uses iperEspresso capsules. The machine has a smaller footprint than you would imagine, and the fit and finish of the machine is startling.

Packed with perfect foam filled side inserts - it's in there tight.

The cube of the iperCube? Awesome fit.

It simply slides right out of the box. This truly is
frustration free packaging.

There's a really nice set of design touches on the top.
is that a coffee flower? Who knows what that is?

About the FrancisFrancis Y1 Single Serve iperEspresso Maker

The Francis Francis Y1 machine brings together illy’s iperEspresso capsule system with a simple, one-touch single serve espresso maker. You simply insert a capsule, press the button, and smooth, full-bodied espresso topped with long-lasting crema is exported right into your cup.

The Y1’s aluminum body, tempered glass cupholder and compact silhouette make this espresso maker a bit different. Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso method uses a two-stage process and because extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact, making for easy clean up.

I can tell you one thing - along the entire front is where the water reservoir is and the heating unit is in the back area of the larger red box -more in the review.
