Illy Launches Limited Edition X1 Espresso & Coffee Machine

Twenty years ago, illy pioneered in-home espresso preparation with the launch of the X1 Machine. Designed by Luca Trazzi, the machine became a design icon and precursor in the world of coffee machines.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary this year, Trieste, Italy-based illy is offering a limited-edition machine – the X1 Anniversary Espresso & Coffee Machine.

The new X1 Anniversary edition is an evolution in form and functionality from the original design. It is steeped in heritage – an ode to the classic machine – yet has been updated with new features and functions such as the ability to make espressos, americanos, cappuccinos as well as tea and herb tea infusions. It also has a milk frother and programmable drink volumes. The new X1 edition is also more energy efficient.

The limited-edition X1 Anniversary Espresso & Coffee Machine is now available in the US in stainless steel (USD $699), red and matte black (USD $599) at select retailers such as Williams Sonoma and at The machine previously launched in Europe.
