Quality Italian espresso at the press of a button in your own home? Oh yeah! I’ve got a nifty IperEspresso Coffee Machine from Illy up for grabs.
I recently spent a morning at London’s University of Coffee with Illy’s Head of Quality, Marco Arrigo. This man knows his coffee, not to mention how to pull a perfect espresso. If you ever get the chance to sit in on a session with Marco, go for it! I learned about what makes a great cup of coffee and why the Illy brand is practically a seal of approval guaranteeing a cuppa joe that’s well above average.
During my caffeinated crash course in all things coffee, Marco introduced me to Illy’s range of IperEspresso coffee capsule machines. He even arranged for one to be delivered to my home. Honestly, I was sceptical. I’ve had disastrous results using these sorts of contraptions in the past. I won’t mention the other brands I tried, but they really put me off the whole capsule coffee concept.
I must admit though, after a week or so with my IperEspresso, I’ve genuinely been impressed with the fine and hassle-free coffee I’ve been making with it. In fact I like the thing so much, I enquired about the opportunity to share one of the machines with my readers. Luckily for you, Marco agreed.
Marco sent me the Y1.1 Touch IperEspresso Machine. It’s a straightforward coffee-only machine. As I don’t take milk (or sugar) with my coffee, it’s ideal for me. However, I’m aware that most folks like milk with their coffee. So for this friendly little giveaway, I’ve got a X7.1 IperEspresso Machine to share. Retailing at just under £200, the X7.1 comes with the capsule coffee element along with its own milk frother. It’s an awesome piece of coffee kit.
In addition to this one freebie machine on offer, there’s a 25% off voucher code for everybody to take advantage of as well. Keep reading for details on how to win the X7.1 and to redeem the voucher code.

About the X7.1 IperEspresso Machine
The X7.1 is the evolution of the original X7 machine: its modern and strong visual design – by architect Luca Trazzi – combines with even more advanced technology to make preparation of espresso and cappuccino easier and faster.
Just insert an iperEspresso capsule. With one touch, the perfect illy espresso brews into the cup without any contact with the machine. One touch brews perfect espresso with consistent quality every time and creamy, thick and velvety frothed milk.
