A cup of illy espresso is a brief but intense experience that caresses the senses, awakens the spirit and opens the mind. From the very first sip, illy’s rich, fragrant aroma and distinctive, consistent taste provide an authentic Italian coffee experience to be savored over and over again.
illy produces one single blend composed of nine types of 100% premium Arabica coffee–the very finest–and makes it available in different formats and roasts. This choice guarantees consistent quality and distinguishes the illy blend, ensuring it always has the same unique aroma and flavor.
The green coffee beans are carefully selected at source from the best plantations in Brazil, Central America, India and Africa and are then subjected to 114 quality control steps before being sold. The coffee is packaged in the signature illy can which provides a protective pressurized atmosphere to preserve its aroma for two years.
Brewed coffee made with an autodrip machine is the most popular preparation method in the United States, and waking to a steaming cup of this smooth, aromatic elixer is a morning ritual for many. Using the proper grind is essential for a rich, aromatic, never-bitter taste, which is why illy ground coffee for drip coffeemakers was created. It is more coarsely ground for optimal extraction with drip coffeemakers and French presses. illy’s decaffeinated coffee has the same flavor profile as medium roast, but without the caffeine.
