Cupboard Lust: Baby Blue Francis Francis X1 Espresso Machine

I'm not much of a coffee drinker (mainly because instant coffee makes me upset, and I'm too lazy to make proper coffee unless I'm in a near-zombie state of exhaustion and prepared to do anything if it means eventually imbibing copious amounts of caffeine). But even so, this Francis Francis X1 Espresso Machine still has me sighing like a 90s schoolgirl over Lee from 911 or Adam Rickitt.

The retro-futuristic design is by Italian architect Lucca Trazzi, and comes in a rainbow of colours from this baby blue to black, grey, almond, red, yellow and orange, so whatever your kitchen colour scheme, there'll be one to suit you. It features the latest electronics to control the coffee and steam temperatures, along with a brass boiler and cup-warming rail.

The machine also comes with all the accessories you need, including a milk jug, coffee tamper, and two bags of illy ground coffee. It's £399 from Espresso Crazy. That might sound like a lot, but it's over £100 cheaper than I've seen the same machine being sold for elsewhere on the interweb, and there's free delivery on all orders too.


  1. I don't drink espresso but that machine is a thing of beauty.

  2. Based on the dashboard of the (old) Mini.

  3. It is?! Oh Jules that makes it even better.
