Why illy is different
- Hand selected beans
A single imperfect bean can spoil the flavour of an espresso. This is why we select each coffee bean one by one, checking its quality throughout the production process.
- Single blend 100% Arabica
Every espresso we serve contains the perfect balance of body and arome, thanks to illy’s single blend of 100% Arabica beans.
- Sustainable quality
100% of illy’s beans are sourced directly from farmers, at 30% above-market price – rewarding quality, and encouraging steady improvement. illy continually invests in technologies and techniques that reduce the environmental impact of coffee production.
- DNV certified
illy’s passion for coffee, the best that nature can provide, is also found in its respect for people and the environment. This is why illy is the world’s first company to receive the Responsible Supply Chain Process certification of sustainability awarded by DNV (Det Norske Veritas)
