Illy Francis Francis Y1 Espresso Maker Review
The illy Francis Francis Y1 won't lure Espresso connoisseurs, but it makes a decent brew.
With the Capresso Café, you have to grind, load and tamp your own beans, which can be time consuming and difficult. With the Y1, you just pop a new iperEspresso capsule into the portafilter and you are ready to go. That’s the main advantage of the illy over the Capresso, and a little convenience can go a long way. We also found that the illy produces better quality espresso and was more consistent, although it does not have any way to steam and froth milk.
