This all-metal X5 model features a brass boiler and the Supercrema brewing system, pump-driven with 8-9 bars of dynamic pressure. The chrome-plated brass brewing handle maintains ideal temperatures for coffee, while the steam/hot water wand swivels for tidy storage. The best feature of the X5 is its ability to brew espresso with either pre-measured ESE (Easy Serving Espresso) coffee pods or with loose grounds with your favorite illy coffee. Two interchangeable filter holders are included, one for each method. Three filters also come with the machine for pulling ristretto, regular, or lungo shots. Measuring 10-1/4 by 8-1/4 by 11-1/4 inches, the X5 is a relatively compact machine, built with flat sides to save space on tight countertops. Keep in mind that it weighs 16 pounds, so you'll want to make a permanent spot for it, and that the 48-ounce water tank is accessed from the back, so you'll need room to work behind it. The sleek little battery-powered clock on the front of the machine pops out for setting and battery replacement. illy experts rigorously inspect, test, and certify our refurbished espresso machines, restoring each to be as good as new. illy only certifies and restores machines that look beautiful and are in excellent working condition so you can enjoy extraordinary illy coffee at home.
