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.

The X1 Trio uses the widely available ESE (“Easy Serving Espresso”) paper pod system, for café-quality espresso with remarkable convenience.  Each E.S.E. filter pod contains just the right measure of expertly ground and tamped illy coffee — a singular blend of nine, optimal quality Arabica beans, sourced from four continents.

The innovative Trio extraction filter handle has 3 positions allowing you to select the length/size of espresso that you want – ristretto (short), regular or lungo (long).


Choose the colour of beautiful metal case to suit your taste in red, black, almond or stainless steel.
