Designed by Luca Trazzi, a renowned designer and architect, the FrancisFrancis! X6 Trio Semi Automatic Espresso Machine is sure to turn heads with its timeless design. With the press of a button the new Trio will brew the perfect shot of espresso – cup after cup, thanks to its innovative technology and ESE pod capability. And because of its revolutionary brass portafilter, brewing espresso on the X6 Trio is easier than ever. Just place a pre-packaged espresso pod into the portafilter, line up the handle with the clearly labeled symbols and choose a lungo, espresso or ristretto shot. In seconds, you’ll have a long shot, normal shot or short shot of perfect tasting espresso! The FrancisFrancis! X6 Trio also features a brass boiler that provides temperature stability and an easy-to-read temperature gauge that is color-coded to inform you of the temperature and when the machine is ready to brew or steam.
Easy Serving Espresso Portafilter
This brass portafilter was designed to work exclusively with ESE pre-packaged pods. While the brass portafilter is excellent for temperature stability, the ability to brew only with espresso pods ensures consistently delicious coffee.
The Italian designers made sure to include a high-watt brass boiler that provides excellent temperature stability.
High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light
There are three chrome push buttons on the Trio. The main power button activates the heating element when powered on, while the other two buttons operate the brewing system and the steam feature respectively.
The FrancisFrancis! X6 Trio has two indicator lights that let you know when the machine is operational and when it is ready to steam. When the boiler is full and the machine is operating normally a green light remains on. Another green light lights when the X6 is heating to steam temperature and turns off when the machine is ready to steam.
The X6 Trio is passively heated and holds six cups within the chrome rails. Pre-heating cups is an essential part of enjoying delicious espresso; cold cups immediately suck the heat out of espresso.
Hot Water Dispenser
When powered on, the FrancisFrancis! X6 instantly dispenses hot water for tea, hot chocolate or café Americanos through the dual-purpose steam/hot water wand.
The Trio has a steam wand that makes steaming or frothing milk trouble-free. Since the wand is on a ball-joint and can rotate 360 degrees, simply immerse the wand directly into a milk pitcher you are able to make froth for lattes or cappuccinos in seconds.
The X6 Trio has a 40oz water reservoir that is easily accessible and removable from the right side of the machine.
Drip Grate and Tray
The FrancisFrancis! X6 Trio has an easily removable drip grate and tray. With its red floating indicator it is easy to see when the tray is full and needs to be emptied.
