The Illy company was set up in 1933 in Italy by a Hungarian officer who had come to Trieste with the Austro-Hungarian Army during World War I, and stayed. Today, the company remains with the Illy family, with the founder's grandson at the helm. They have 700 employees and sell their brand in over 100 countries. The company uses only Arabica beans, purchased directly from the farmer, rather then the middleman, and produces only one superiour blend.

So much for Google info ;o)... Now, here is my personal Illy "journey":

I am down to only one cup of coffee a day and so I need its taste to be perfect (quality vs quantity). I like my coffee very strong, but dread the bitter aftertaste many strong brands induce (Starbucks would be one). I was introduced to Illy by a co-worker a few years ago, and have not looked back... It provides the strength I crave, with a sweet and smooth aftertaste. Yes, this coffee will grow hair on your chest(figuratively...). The coffee is packed in air free conditions (with nitrogen gas), to help preserve the taste. When you pull of the inner metal seal, you will hear the air hissing its way into the can. The metal cap is a twist off. It is designed to be air tight as well, to prolong the freshness after the can has been opened.

Regarding the brewing process: for a decade now I have been using the French press exclusively (I believe it delivers a stronger/sweeter brew). I find the medium grind/medium roast "blue band" Illy to be perfect for the purpose. The instructions on the back of the can help you with coffee to water ratio for both the drip machine and the French press. Do not over-agitate the French press after brewing and you will be ok.

We use Illy in both drip and espresso machines. Their darker roasts are wonderful, not bitter, and form a nice crema when used in our espresso machines.
Drink Illy any time of the day--use decaf at night as needed!

Do not feel pressured to buy whole beans and grind them every day. This ground coffee is great! The Illy canisters are vacuum-sealed and have a long shelf life. Buy several at a time if you see a good price, and enjoy!

Now that I have a coffee grinder, I buy whole-bean coffee nowadays, but this Illy pre-ground coffee was adequate back in the day. The instructions on the side of the can -- I can't remember what the instructed proportions are -- will produce unusually weak coffee. For drip coffee, I recommend the standard 2 Tbsp coffee per 6 oz. water. This grind is too fine for a French press, but it's good for paper filters in drip coffee machines. I hear that Illy packs their coffee in nitrogen to help preserve flavor and aroma. I don't know if that's true or not, but the canisters Illy produces have a metal pop-top seal under the lid, so you're probably getting fresher coffee from Illy than you'd get from other brands of ground coffee.

Confession: I have been a true fan of Starbucks. I used to think Starbucks was the best coffee ever and the many bags of Starbucks in my pantry will prove that! However, I recently received a gift of a half pound of illy Caffe Normale Drip/Medium Grind (Blue Band) Coffee, 8.8 Ounce Tins (Pack of 2)and I was for once in my life, truly impressed with the quality, flavor, and aroma of this coffee. I also find this to be heartbreaking as I do not know what to do with all my Starbucks that I have on hand. I just gave 3 pounds of my Starbucks to my mother-in-law since I will not be drinking it anymore. If you are a true coffee conesseiur then you will love Illy coffee. If I ever open a coffee shop, I would be more than happy to invest in this company.

This is my default brand of coffee. It's just right, not too strong and no burnt taste. Starbucks was good 10+ years ago, but now I only go if I'm desperate for caffeine. Peets is a bit too strong for my taste. Illy is perfect, esp. their medium roast, fine grind. Hmmm.

This is one of the best coffees I've ever had. Very smooth, delicioius after taste, and the perfect roast for me. WELL worth the fact that it is a pricey coffee. If you are a coffee lover, then Illy is for you.

I keep coming back to this espresso as one of the smoothest, medium-bodied but full flavored coffees I've tried. I make it in a 4-cup drip coffeemaker, not an espresso machine, and the results are still great.

I have tried the dark roast version but find that one is too much for me (at least brewed this way). I just wish it were cheaper or came in a larger quantity; it's not the kind of price that you're comfortable making extra cups worth and not drinking them.

Definitely one you should try if you have not.

We can't live without our Illy! Nothing compares, and we have tried so many different types. It is the one thing we won't scrimp on anymore. Life's too short to drink bad coffee!
