Illy Francis Y3 "big cup" versus Y5 "coffee cup"?

Postby snakyjake » Fri Mar 03, 2017 12:52 am

The Y3 has buttons for "small and big cup" (per manual).
The Y5 has buttons for "espresso and coffee" (per manual).

What is the difference??

Is the Y3 "big cup" brew button the same as the Y5 "coffee" brew button?

Can the Y3 brew coffee?

Are the two different brewing methods? Or just different output size?

Not sure what the real difference is between the Y3 and Y5?

Are there different capsules for the Y3 big cup and Y5 coffee?

I don't think there are any current users of any of the Illy iperespresso series of capsules systems here.
The operation manuals for both of those machines are available online for download or PDF viewing and perhaps those would give you the information you want.
I think your onoy reliable answer will come from a note addressed to Illy's customer service people.

I will say that Illy's machines are built quite well and they just have a nice feel to them, much more massive and tighter than, say, Keurigs or Nespresso units;lots of metal and thick plastics and even glass on some units.

If you get one of these machines, please come back and tell us about yoru experiences.
