Question about FrancisFrancis! Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
If I buy a ground coffee only machine is there an attachment I can buy to convert it to use pods?
Posted by Anonymous on
My X1 came with an ESE pod holder and a ground coffee holder so they are definitely available.

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.

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.

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.
