The X1 is undeniably one of the more unique looking consumer espresso machines on the market today. Available in a wide range of colours, the machine has undergone some major improvements inside in recent years.
Scott Smith (quality: 8.8)
Bottom Line: Great machine for the espresso fan
Patrick Moss (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Love it! Get one and you'll love it too.
Josh Alwitt (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Great coffee and easy to use, but unreliable machine makes it not worth the trouble
Steve Strawman (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Probably more style than substance, but capable of making decent (not great) espresso; a high-maintenance trophy-wife.
Phil M (quality: 7.6)
Bottom Line: Design classic, Quality espresso.
Jay Johnson (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: If you need parts, get ready to ship your machine. Using the steamer: for 12oz of milk to go from 40* to 160* takes over 3 min. FF customer service is juvenile at best.
Mark Shackelford (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Attractive retro design offers exclusivity and conversation. Equal performance can be had for less $.
Brenda XYZ (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: Form and function mesh beautifully.
Drew Giacobe (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Pretty, but in the end, it's a piece of junk.
Name Blank (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: An eye-catching, effective espresso machine for people who want a quick, tasty shot of love.
Chris Aubry (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Don't even think about it! Imagine, one can get a Sylvia for less!
J J (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Looks nice outside, cheap parts inside, machine-specific parts are not available. All beauty, with no brawn.
Steve Caswell (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great machine if you're into convenience and like the idea of switching between pods and traditional in an instance.
Robert Perschmann (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Can find no reason to rate less than a ten on all counts
Lars Wallin (quality: 6.8)

Rex Bond (quality: 6.7)

Ben Wickham (quality: 6.6)

Louise Cochran (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: Overall a beautiful and functional machine
Daniel Cohen (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: dont let look be your guide :-)
Heather Snow (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Good machine until it stopped working. For about a year and a half I was happy with it. Two years later it's broken and I wish I'd bought quality over design.
