If the standard pod centered coffee machines or even a coffee and espresso shot pod machine are cutting it for you, there is still a place for you in the Francis Francis family.
Francis Francis has evolved quite a bit since its start 25 years ago. They are based out of Italy and bring the well known Italian love for coffee to each of their products. They have expanded in technology, design, and budget-friendly products to keep up with ever-evolving home coffee maker demands.
One of their more advanced products that we will be reviewing today is the Illy Francis Francis Y5. There is lots to learn, so buckle up and let’s get started.
The Illy Francis Francis Y5 is great for those that are looking for a pod compatible machine, but not wanting to be tied down to only coffee or simple espresso shots. It is also great for someone that has a middle range budget for their coffee maker. Considering all the options, this is a great price for a coffee maker, but it is more expensive than simple coffee maker options.
The Illy Francis Francis Y5 has lots to offer. Here are some of our favorite features:
The Francis Francis Y5 Milk merges modern technology and ease with pod coffee machines and the pull towards a more customizable drink experience. It brings the quality and good reputation of Illy Iper pods coffee while adding some versatility for those that need a change. It also has exciting modern features such as programmable cup volumes to further personalize the brewing process.
And we can’t forget the one-touch and brew quality that appeals to those living on the go, the less experienced tech crew, and those that love keeping life simple.
This is a great product looking for a safe middle ground between loads of options and basic coffee machines. It gives versatility with 6 drink options but appeals to those that don’t like putting much effort into their coffee with the pod feature. If this sounds like a fit for you, go grab yours!
