First of all please ignore Techari review above/below, the last thing Illy coffee has as a trait is any form of bitterness (unless of course you do not know how to make good coffee in the first place).
You will not find a better coffee than this for everyday use, rich, full flavoured, full bodied, highly aromatic with depth and character. If you want the high roast taste then buy the illy coffee in the silver/black tin, But if you like the majority of the population just want a decent, slightly indulgent treat. Then this is it. Like the other reviewers here you will not go back to anything else (well actually we do try occasionally only to discover we are wasting our time).
Cheap it is not , worth every penny it is.
