Detailed Commentary

i'm using the x1 for about 4 years (> 10.000 espressi) now and i've had no problems so far. after some fumbling with ground coffee of different brands i changed to ESE pods which make an excellent espresso with a beautiful crema. looking at the other reviews i think the machine is way overpriced in some countries. at the current rate i can get it here for less than 400US$. as the boiler is very small it heats up fast but it also needs some time to reheat after every espresso.
