"When your favorite coffee maker is not working right, you look everywhere, you hope you find someone that fixes it for you And Sapori exceeded our expectations. Great service, kept us appraised of the status and the service cost was just what they said. Highly recommended and don't worry, they know what they are doing."

"Thank you Sapori Fine Flavors. I was having trouble with my almost 15 year old Francis Francis X1 espresso machine, and sent it in to be repaired. Chuck did an excellent job fixing the problems and replacing parts that needed to be replaced."
—Joseph F., Woodland Hills, CA
"I had the refurb service performed on my beloved Francis Francis X1 and it works like it was brand new! Prepping the machine, properly packing it up and shipping it was a chore, but once it was sent on it's way, my part was done. The rest of the process was very easy (I opted to have them call me for my credit card number instead of including it in the paperwork sent with the machine, which was great). The machine came back very well packed and in great refurb condition. Love it!"
—Will T., Boulder, CO

"I had great service on my Francis Francis X1 and X5. Both units worked well after being repaired and serviced. The communication and confirming the repairs to be made with the costs clearly laid out helped make an informed decision on what to do with the units. I am happy to have them both back up and running."

"Sapori Fine Flavors has the answer for any problems with your Francis Francis products. After buying parts from them for years, I sent my 15-year-old X3 to be refurbished and it came back good as new. Their price is reasonable and they're completely reliable AND friendly. It's gratifying to find and support such a good small business."
—Buzz T., San Francisco, CA
