I just purchased the X1. I wasn't aware that the standard for use is the pods. If I were to go at this the old-fashioned way with grinds, how much do I use? In other words, what is the equivalent of a 7 gram pod to a scoop or scoops of ground espresso beans?

I loved my Francis but it appears to be drawing too much power. In fact, it trips the breaker on my GFI switch when plugged into the electrical outlet. I am tiring of my daily espresso trips to the coffee shop. What do you suggest I do to get my machine back in good working order?
