Xerxes Lee (quality: 4.7) 03.18.2005 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: don't forget to empty driptray after EVERY shot.
X1 Owner (quality: 4.5) 11.28.2007 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Great with an entry-level burr grinder.
Thomas Scheidegger (quality: 5.0) 09.19.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: looks great but will only satisfy espresso-drinkers
Steve Strawman (quality: 8.0) 02.04.2006 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Probably more style than substance, but capable of making decent (not great) espresso; a high-maintenance trophy-wife.
Steve Caswell (quality: 7.0) 12.14.2007 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Great machine if you're into convenience and like the idea of switching between pods and traditional in an instance.
Steve Baker (quality: 2.0) 02.04.2000 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: Steer well clear of this baby its a nightmare!
Scott Smith (quality: 8.8) 02.08.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great machine for the espresso fan
Robert Perschmann (quality: 6.8) 12.22.2003 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: Can find no reason to rate less than a ten on all counts
Robert Bloom (quality: 4.3) 12.14.2007 Rating: 1.0
Bottom Line: £25 coffee in a £400 machine.  Or, for U.S. readers, $50 coffee in an $800 machine.
Richard Bluestein (quality: 5.0) 10.01.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Get it it you‘re in love with the design.
Rex Bond (quality: 6.7) 03.07.2003 Rating: 9.0

Phil M (quality: 7.6) 05.08.2003 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Design classic, Quality espresso.
Peter Harraway 08.09.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Twin the Francis with a Rancilio Rocky and you won't be disappointed - escape pod constraints!
Paul Cleary (quality: 3.0) 10.24.2000 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: A good looker but a poor performer.
Patrick Moss (quality: 8.0) 02.10.2006 Rating: 8.4

Name Blank (quality: 7.0) 03.10.2004 Rating: 8.8

Bottom Line: I can highly recommend buying the Francis Francis X1
Mark Shackelford (quality: 7.5) 06.13.2000 Rating: 8.8

Lawrence Brunelle (quality: 3.0) 12.25.2003 Rating: 7.0
