Illy has never been the cheapest way to produce your daily brew, but if you work it out on a cost per cup basis, you are talking pennies.
I tend to fresh grind small batches every few days and keep the beans in the fridge. I have found the Illy beans to be very consistent over the years, and depending on the coarseness of the grind, equally good for both filter and espresso.
5 star all the way.
The bottom line is taste, and these beans make an excellent cup of coffee. They can take being brewed strong without any bitterness, and produce a brew that has a rich, strong, slightly creamy flavour.
Worth the money I'd say -- for an occasional treat at least.
Yes, it is expensive, but you pay for what you get....and for those of you with man caves, the tins make excellent nut, bolt and screw storage receptacles!
The packaging is fancy (Illy have been selling coffee in tins since the 1950s), as you might expect when you purchase an expensive item, but it actually serves a purpose, as the (patented) packaging process allows air in the can to be replaced by inert gases at above atmospheric pressure, thereby keeping your coffee fresh and full of flavour while it is transported throughout the world; information you may wish to bore your guests with, or not. The lid screws down tightly and securely to keep the beans as fresh as possible once opened.
With a good grinder, and either a stove-top espresso maker or espresso machine (which I find produces the best texture and flavour) the espresso this blend produces is an absolute delight; thick, with a light and substantial `crema' and a smooth, slightly nutty/caramel flavour, strong, but not overly bitter. This is the best I can describe it. I have become completely sold on this, and will now only use this or Lavazza Qualita ORO for my morning espresso. It may be a couple of pounds more expensive than the rest, but it tastes more than a couple of pounds better - that's good value in my book. Treat yourself.
The can is very nice looking and I'm saving mine to keep bits and bobs in after the coffee has gone. The twist cap is very well suited for this re-using mentality, as if by design.

Definatley dont walk past these coffee beans. We've tried heaps, but always come back to Illy!!!Published 21 days ago by Jess
Really great tasting coffee beans. The beans are sealed in a container and are opened by popping the tin seal (as you would with a can of Coke) after unscrewing the lid. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
