Spring colors bloom with illy X7.1 Sunrise Edition

Spring colors bloom with illy X7.1 Sunrise Edition. The spirit of spring is in the air for coffee lovers now that the X7.1 Sunrise Limited Edition from illy has just arrived at the illy online shop.

The Sunrise Edition is a collection of single-serve espresso machines in three pastel hues inspired by dawn, which are named Aurora Green, Morning Pink and Daylight Yellow.

The X7.1, by Francis Francis for illy is a coveted design that combines illy’s innovative iperEspresso system, which since 2008 has changed the way in-home espresso is made with a single serve machine.

Each iperEspresso capsule uses a two phased process, encompassing distinct “hyperinfusion” and “emulsion” stages that work together to deliver aromatic, intense and full-bodied espresso, topped with a rich, long-lasting and velvety crema.

The iperEspresso system is protected by five patents worldwide and is smartly designed so that coffee never comes in contact with the machine, for easy maintenance and delivery of the purest coffee cup after cup.

Key features of the X.71 Sunrise Limited Edition include:

  • Pannarello steam wand that froths milk for creamy cappuccino and latte
  • Programmable volume settings and automatic stop
  • Power save with automatic shut-off after 30 minutes
  • 15 bar pump pressure
  • Automatic decalcification setting program
  • Drip tray
  • Cup warmer

The X.71 Sunrise Edition is priced at $295.00 plus shipping and is exclusively available at www.illyusa.com.

At the core of each iperEspresso capsule is illy’s signature coffee blend, containing nine types of 100 percent sustainably grown Arabica beans, all directly purchased from growers.

Twenty five years ago, illy pioneered directly buying beans from growers to ensure unparalleled bean quality and sustainable practices were adopted.

In addition to illy’s legendary nine-bean Arabica blend available in medium, dark roast, and decaffeinated plus iperEspresso capsules for “long” espresso, illy also offers its MONOARABICA™ iperEspresso single-origin Arabica coffees.

Each illy MONOARABICA coffee has a flavor and aroma profile that encapsulates the distinctive origin including Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Columbia, Ethiopia, and India.

iperEspresso capsules come 21 to a pack with a price of $18.00 and are available at select retailers and at www.illyusa.com.

Owners of the new X7.1 Sunrise Edition can also take advantage of RENEWSM, the illy iperEspresso capsule recycle program.

By collecting used capsules and mailing them in or dropping off at participating retailers to be recycled, waste is diverted from landfills.

Sustainability is core to illy’s values and its investments, the company was recognized for the third consecutive year as a 2015 World’s Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent center of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance.
