For many, this respectable Italian brand represents the better form of  worldwide available Italian coffee. 


If Lavazza is the world’s best known Italian espresso brand, Illy is probably not only a challenger for the title but many time perceived as the globally available alternative. For some this view is coming from Illy’s higher price. For others this is due to a perceived superior level of sophistication in coffee selection and packaging, doubled by a long standing involvement with the world of arts and design that now surround its coffee products and are brought to life in the best Illy bars.

At Caffè del Bar we respect Illy’s constant support for the good Italian bars and theior investment in the coffee culture, and we believe that in the hands of a good barista the best Illy products will provide a proper classic Italian espresso.

The Illy bean products, with the reassurance they are offering to those who rely on established brands, are in our view a good stepping stone from the world of capsules and supermarket brands to the broader and better world of gourmet coffee.
