This Illy Coffee Maker Will Start Your Mornings Right

Being fluent in coffee culture is 2017’s launching a microbrewery or making your own wine. Folks literally pour over the provenance of their beans, roasting techniques, and brewing methods. And if you’re ordering specialty whole Arabica beans from Sumatra, Kona or Java, you’re not going to just throw those grounds into your average drip coffeemaker. You’re going to want the top-of-the-line, the showstopper that will dominate your counter with all its shining glory–the Illy X1 Anniversary Espresso Machine.

Initially designed 20 years ago by Italian architect Luca Trazzi, who created the multi-sensory “Cromateria” installation in Milan, and designed sculptural-meets-functional pieces for Swatch and ViceVersa, the anniversary edition of the X1 features a retro-chic aesthetic coupled with some decidedly modern updates. Most noteworthy is the company’s groundbreaking iperEspresso Capsule system, a two-stage brewing process to create intensely flavorful espresso from self-contained capsules of grounds. Use the attached steam wand to froth milk, and presto, your latte or cappuccino is ready. (The wand also spouts hot water for teas and infusions, should you be so inclined.)

For those coffee connoisseurs who prefer an American brew, the Illy X1 also crafts a traditional cup at the flip of a switch using the company’s patented capsules. And an automatic stop lets you customize your pour–brew a little to crest that 3 o’clock slump or a lot when you’re burning the midnight oil.

5 Reasons You Should Have a Cup of Coffee Right Now:

While the X1 looks all bells and whistles, it is surprisingly low maintenance with an automatic descaling cycle–an absolute must for all coffee makers to not only preserve the life of the machine but also ensure a high-quality, flavorful brew–and an energy-saving mode that kicks on after 10 minutes of inactivity. Available in stainless steel, rich black, and cherry red finishes, the X1 can accommodate both your smallest espresso cup and largest mug–and comes complete with a cup warmer for when life gets in the way of that first morning sip.
