illy has created a coffee with Arabica beans from the original home of coffee, Ethiopia. The beans in this blend are hand-picked and grown in the shade, and come from the part of Ethiopia where it is believed the first coffee originated.

Ethiopian coffee beans are among the most exclusive in the world, and known for their delicate floral notes. You get a single origin coffee grown sustainably that has a delicate, aromatic body with notes of jasmine.

It is a quality coffee created from carefully selected beans, roasted according to the best Italian coffee traditions. The result is a gentle and aromatic coffee that we are confident will appeal to most people's tastes.

We deliver this aromatic coffee as coffee beans, which you can grind yourself at home, tailoring it to your own preferences.

The ground coffee can be brewed in filter coffee machines, French presses, and of course in Espresso machines.

For the optimal experience, we recommend that you grind the coffee just before you use it.

illy was founded in Trieste, Italy in 1933, and is still led by the descendants of the company's founder, Francesco Illy. The classic red-and-white illy logo is a familiar sight in fashionable cafes, and every day millions of cups of illy coffee are enjoyed in cafes, offices and homes around the world. illy is one of the pioneers of the coffee industry, known not only for its coffee, but also for having invented the modern Espresso machine and cutting-edge packaging.

Would rate this 10/10 , really smooth coffee and all the flavours coming threw in each cup Read More
Great taste, just less crema Read More
5 stars. My favourite coffee beans. Read More
I love a good coffee and I prefer them with a milder taste, so this one is perfect for me. Especially if you like making cappuccinos or lattes, you get all the great taste of coffee without the bitter part.
I also love the box/packaging it comes in. I always struggle with keeping my coffee beans dry with other 'sachet' types of packaging, but this box is perfect for it. Will 100% purchase again.

I think I prefer this ever so slightly to the Illy classic, the tasting notes are ever delicately more pronounced. A nice espresso. Read More
