This is a warning: A love for good espresso is an expensive habit!!!

I've been making my own espresso at home for 20 years. Every morning I would grind the beans, measure and tamp them into the filter, add water, steam my milk, and then wash the entire machine and repeat. I have to wake up early because this is a time consuming process. I've tried other pod machines, and they just don't make a good cup of espresso.

I recently began using the illy Francis Francis Y1 with iperEspresso capsules, and the result is better than my manual method, and takes a little over a minute a cup.

Generally, I take my cappuccino cup and heat an ounce of milk in the microwave for 30 seconds, use a hand frother for just a few seconds, press the button on the Y1, and in about 20 seconds it brews a 1 or 2 ounce shot of perfect espresso (you have to depress the button when you think it is finished - there is no auto shutoff). Wham, bam, done!

As far as I know, the iperEspresso system is the only "pod" that comes close to a real cup of espresso with crema. And this crema is really a thing of beauty. If you don't know what I'm talking about, try it once and you'll understand. As someone who likes strong coffee, the dark roast is almost not strong enough, but the flavor is so well balanced. It's the perfect blend of bitter and sweet with a body worth savoring.

This isn't cheap, and it's more wasteful than grinding your own beans. So take that into consideration. But, I've only had espresso this good in Italy. Constant trips to Italy would be very wasteful and expensive, so that's my barely rational justification.

I'd also like to share that the Y1 seems to be the most affordable offering in illy's line of iperEspresso systems.

I've always equated cost and complexity with espresso - the more complicated and overpriced the machine, the better the taste. No longer. While the individual capsules aren't cheap (about .70 cents each), the machine is well priced at $400. We go through at least 3 cans a month. Each and every cup is perfect!!! The crema is rich and long lasting. No bitterness. Smooth, rich, and delicious...

I use the dark roast iperEspresso pods every workday morning and anytime I don't have time to make real espresso. By "real" I mean beans that I selected myself, ground right before brewing, and brewed in my manual La Pavoni. I have time to make "real" espresso only on weekends. If you like espresso and want a somewhat decent shot really fast w/o _any_ mess whatsoever, iperEspresso is for you. I give these 4 stars for two reasons -- a) even the dark roast is not strong enough for me (a blessing in disguise, actually), and b) I hate waisting all this plastic -- the pods are not recycleable. However, I haven't found a faster, more convenient way to make somewhat decent espresso w/o the need to wash absolutely anything (great crema too, btw!).

Like other Illy coffees, this is fantastic. The coffee taste is strong and rich but not bitter.

Delivered smooth rich espresso with a truly awesome crema that was thick AND persistent. Better yet, it does this consistently time after time without fuss. Mine was used with the new gaggia illy machine. The convenience of not having to clean anything after each brew (the espresso is dispensed directly from the capsule, so no machine parts are touched) is a delightful added conveience.

Everyone complaining about the price should really take a walk to a coffee store or caffe. Coffee has risen in price the past couple years. Add to that the euro and you'll know why these capsules are more money.

BTW, currently Amazon has a 6 pack of canes for 89.99. That's free shipping and comes out to $14.99 which is what the cans costed when they initially rolled out the iperEspresso system.

I have been using the black can for some time now. Do not even consider buying the red, medium, roast. This dark roast is exactly what espresso should be like, dark and bold and delicious. The crema produced from this coffee is very very good. sugar will sometimes just sit on the top, as a proper espresso should.

My review is for the black top can, which is my favorite one.

I have also tried the red, blue and green. I've already given my impression on the red, it's so-so. The blue top can is for luongo(long) shots. These are excellent for making an Americano. Use two of these pods plus very hot water(6-8ozs) and you'll have an absolutely delicious Americano coffee.

The green top cans are decaf and I am not a big fan of decaf but they are decent. I always have a can around for when guests like to have a decaf espresso.

So each espresso will cost you 95 cents. While that is a pretty hefty price, you are getting caffe quality espresso, which would run you about $2 in any coffee shop. It's a lifestyle choice, you could always get a stove top macchinetta from Bialetti and make espresso that way but you will never ever achieve the quality and crema like these illy capsules produce.

Enjoy your coffee everyone!

As other reviewer said. The espresso is perfect, as far as I can taste. but I like the dark roast much more than the red (medium) and blue.
