    Hi DCR - the X1 , and I think all of the FancisFrancis! machines are manufactured by Quaha - and are almost the same as a series 1 Napoletana/Quaha/Mokita/Salda etc. They do however have an electronic espresso temp thermostat (the steam one is a standard screw in bi-metallic) - and the steam valve tends to leak often , but its particular to that machine. *Apart from the portafilter seal and cleaning the showerscreen , theyre pretty reliable, and anyone that can service any of the other machines should be able to do the X1 .
    regards, pip.

    Thats great, thanks pip. Weve had the machine for over a year, and (as you suggested) apart from a little leaking from the steam valve it has been very reliable. A good home countertop machine generally.
    Appreciate your response,
    D.
