The original X1 became iconic among espresso machines, with a distinctive yet clean design. Dubbed “retro-futuristic” by Wired magazine, this Luca Trazzi-designed machine seamlessly blends soft, captivating lines with original shapes.
Each E.S.E. pod contains a perfectly dosed and tamped measure of the distinctive illy blend, enclosed in environmentally friendly filter paper designed to preserve critical flavor and aromas. An E.S.E. pod is simply placed inside a compatible machine, and within 30 seconds yields an espresso with the signature illy taste: strong, rich, yet smooth and balanced.
