From the challenge of an entrepreneur to the reality of a brand that has become a symbol of quality
Founded in 1933 by Francesco Illy, illycaffè produces and sells in the global market a unique blend of high quality coffee comprising nine types of pure Arabica. From the balance of these ingredients from South America, Central America, India and Africa comes the unmistakable illy flavor, always there, in every cup, from everywhere in the world you may drink it.
illycaffè contributes to the development of the market and the global culture of coffee through all the elements that lead to the creation of a perfect cup of coffee: from the mixture to the machines for its preparation, from the training of specialized coffee shop personnel to the study and the choice of the environments where one can enjoy it, combining the popularization of the coffee culture to a continually reinterpreted tradition.
An approach that is passed on from generations. From the founder, Francesco, to the son Ernesto, and in turn passed on and offered again with just as much enthusiasm to the third generation of the Illy family, with Andrea as its President.
