    Help! Newbie with a X1!!

    Hi guys, I'm a complete newbie to the world of both coffee and espresso machines so I have some questions..

    First of all I purchased a used FrancisFrancis X1, the older version, but I got it cheap and it's all I can afford at the moment.

    The problem is that the only equipment I got was the machine itself but only one filter with the number "2" on it. So my question is, can I use this with ground coffe or only with the pods!?

    Also when I try to make an espresso, it turns out really black and all, but no crema at all. Is this because I haven't used a tamper or the wrong coffee?

    Appreciate all the help I can get!

    Thanks in advance,
