Breville Barista Express Illy X1
4 Reasons For
A Lot More Output
The Breville Barista Express has an output of 2, however the Illy X1 is only a 1 cup coffee maker (1 cups less).

'Output' denotes how much coffee the machine is capable of brewing and delivering at once, measured in cups. This is specifically important for cafetieres or drip-filter machines - however some larger coffee makers can churn out an extremely high level of coffee (in the thousands) while others concentrate on a single very high-quality cup.

A larger output means that the coffee maker can produce more coffee at once, though the amount of coffee created is nowhere near as important as the *quality* of the cup!

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-in Grinder
The Breville Barista Express has a built-in grinder, but the Illy X1 does not.

'Built-In Grinder' denotes whether the coffee maker has a built in grinder to automatically grind a fresh batch of coffee grounds as needed.

Coffee is best when freshly ground, before it's had a chance to dry out and lose flavour - a built in grinder means you'll always be using the freshest grinds for your drinks.

Read more Read less | Edit
Three Years Newer
The Breville Barista Express is three years newer than the Illy X1
Better Brand
Breville coffee makers have an average rating of 74.7%, but Illy only has an average rating of 68.8%.
1 Reason For
Adjustable Coffee Strength
The Illy X1 supports adjustable coffee strength, whereas the Breville Barista Express does not support this feature.

'Adjustable Coffee Strength' indicates whether the you can modify the strength of the coffee produced by the machine, making it stronger or weaker. This is normally done by adding or subtracting 'shots' of espresso from the drink.

Adjustable strength means you can tailor the coffee to personal preferences - not everyone wants their coffee to be rocket fuel!
