The versatile bean
on 30 November 2012
I first encountered Illy coffee over 30 years ago in Italy where it was justifiably regarded as one of the best premium coffees you can buy, and as far as i am concerned, it is still up there with the best.
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.
