My X1 came with an ESE pod holder and a ground coffee holder so they are definitely available.

SOURCE: I recentlty bought a Francis X1 (2000 model). I

There are two different handles made for this unit (I own an X1 and have both). Both of these handles have baskets.

First - The pod handle has a basket area that is very shallow, about 1/3 of an inch deep and the basket has very small holes.

Second - The handle for loose grounds came with two baskets, one for a single dose, and one for a double dose. Both removable baskets have the very small holes for the espresso to drip through.

You must have a basket in the handle in order to use the machine. If you try to make espresso without a basket, you'll just make a mess. Besides, the machine will never be able build enough pressure to extract espresso from the grounds.

Search the net (ebay?) for francis francis x1 handle.


Good luck

If you have an X3 Trio you are out of luck.
If you have the older model, you can buy 'ground coffee conversion kits' or you can use a ground coffee portafilter from an Ascaso Dream/Arc etc.

Do I have to use k-pods exclusively


No as long as they say they are keurig compatible they will work. You can also purchase empty reusable pods that you can fill with your favorite ground coffee of loose leaf tea.

Sounds like a problem with the pods. Check they are manufacture recommended. When on espresso the pressure will be higher so a
"weak" pod could cause this. Unless the machine is producing too high a pressure. Check also there are no projections that could rip the pod when you close the holder.

What are coffee pods? Someone told me to use them in my coffee machine?


Some coffee machines have the option to either use ground coffee and filters or coffee pods. These are small, sealed containers that have the ground coffee inside. You insert the pods into the machine and click them into place. The machine pierces a hole and the water drips through. It's a much tidier way to make coffee especially if you don't drink a lot of it, so you don't want a whole jug full, rather just one cup at a time.

I have an Ascaso Dream - pod only version. I would like to know if the portafilter is replaceable. I want to exchange it with the model that does both ground and pod coffee. Thx, Rasmus from Denmark


Hi Rasmus,
If your model is pod only - fixed version - then it is not possible to replace the group.
If you have a pod portafilter then it is possible.
You will need: . a new portafilter and ground converter kit Ground coffee converter Kit ASCASO porta filter complete

Need to convert gaggia baby from capsule use to regular coffee


Yes, as far as I know most machine that use pods just have a different portafilter, because of the way the pods are setup.

Pods are expensive. I buy espresso grind from my favorite local espresso shack and I take regular drip coffee filters and cut small discs from them to put in the bottom of the cup that holds the grounds (moisten first). It works great and keeps the finer grounds from clogging it up.

Senseo stuck after using coffee pods that have "milk" built in....5 days later


I had the same problem. I waited for a while as the instruction says but didn't open. But, I got it open!!! by turning and slightly pulling a small plug behind the water tank on the backside. (remove the water tank then you'll see the little plug. see attached photos) I think it will let air in and vacuum seal get released. After it opened, I gently turned the plug back and push it in as it was. Now, it is running perfectly again. I just had a great coffee. :-)
