The Y1 is an espresso machine quite unlike any other: elegantly smooth, spare yet substantial, with a diminutive 9.5-inch square base fashioned from tempered glass and brushed aluminum. Once again, illy charts a new path.
That sleek beauty and compact footprint belies illy’s revolutionary Iperespresso capsule system, producing a delightfully aromatic, full-bodied yet remarkably smooth espresso, with velvety crema, at one touch of a button. Simply place an Iperespresso capsule inside the Y1’s mini tower, press start, and enjoy authentic, flawless espresso in just seconds. Capsules load quickly and eject automatically.
Winner of the Red Dot Design Award ("Best of the Best 2011" for household appliances), choose the Y1 that best fits your taste, in red, white or black glass. Countertop-challenged city dwellers, modern design enthusiasts, and anyone passionate about fine coffee and legendary illy quality: your new espresso machine has arrived.
