The X5 is the latest machine from Francis! Francis! It features the same innards as the X1 and X3, in a different body shape.
Patrick S. (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Solidly built, performs well when paired with quality fresh beans and appropriate grind. Slow on the steaming, but can produce with patience. Pick one up used and it's worth a try as an entry-level machine.
