Illy Francis Francis Y1 Espresso Maker Review
The illy Francis Francis Y1 won't lure Espresso connoisseurs, but it makes a decent brew.
Both machines are made by illy and share many of the same pros and cons. They are both easy to use, with straightforward designs that don’t overwhelm the user with information. But the Y1 takes simplicity to a whole new level by only having two buttons (one for each size of shot) and no other controls. The X7.1 is a little more sophisticated, as it has to offer steam controls as well, but it is still simple to understand.
