Enjoy Your Cup of illy Coffee
When you drink our coffee, you can be sure that you’re drinking only the finest. Furthermore, through our delicate tasting and re-tasting process we ensure that our beans maintain their original characteristics – the reason we chose them in the first place. In fact, we test them up to eight times before they make the cut to be a part of the illy brand.
The prelude to taste and coffee’s first impression. At the optimum temperature of 80°C let the first waves of aroma cascade over you as you stir it to life. Notice the light notes of flowers and fruit, marked by jasmine and almond. The next wave comes after you’ve had your first sip, with hints of freshly baked bread and chocolate.
The main event. Best enjoyed at around 65°C, this is when espresso is at its best for tasting. With a tiny sip, there is a bold fullness with an unmistakable balance of sweet, bitter and acidic. Should you opt for a touch of sugar, we recommend you add it after the first sip; after you’ve allowed your palate to experience this masterpiece in its purest form.
Touch and texture play a big part in an espresso’s body. We feel it in its crema where the light-brown top layer laces itself across the tongue in deep, velvety and creamy swathes. This all adds to the culinary journey and experience of espresso.
From the din of a busy coffee shop, with grinders holding assembly, to the morning’s silent sigh at home with the gentle bubbling bubbling bubbling: coffee is all-immersive. As the cup delicately chimes against its saucer and the spoon rings in high-pitched melody with each rotation, coffee is a symphony for the senses.
It’s good to know what good looks like. Cast your eyes over the surface to the crema on top and its sublime textures of brown, streaked by light reddish streaks, akin to those of a tiger. Remember, if the crema is dark brown, has a white button or black hole at the centre, please send it back. These are tell-tale signs for lack of care in the espresso ranging from too fine a grind, excessive temperature and pressure, to overly long extraction time. Also, beware of light and flimsy crema with its mirror-image issues.
