Start the Day with the Magical Aroma of Italy in a Cup

Just like Lavazza, Illy Caffè is a family-owned Italian business. The company was established in Trieste (better known as the coffee city) in 1933 by Francesco Illy, who had a dream to "provide the best coffee in the world." Nowadays, millions of espresso fans around the globe who order Illy coffee online know that his dream has come true. Illy is a brand that offers Illy coffee wholesalers and consumers an opportunity to enjoy original Italian coffee at affordable prices. Those looking for premium, whole-bean coffee would probably prefer more expensive brands, but for the mass consumer, Illy offers an opportunity to savour the aroma of Italy in a cup every morning without breaking the bank.

The Illycaffè company sells coffee-related items in over 140 countries across the world. The Illy Group consists of many enterprises based in North America, Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg (the Benelux countries).

Since the late 1980s, Illy has purchased raw coffee beans straight from source countries rather than from global commodity marketplaces. The company exclusively buys Arabica coffee, primarily from Brazil, the world's largest producer, but also from India, Colombia, African, and Central American countries.

The silver and red pressurised, oxygen-free cans are still Illy's globally recognized trademark. Despite selling medium, dark, and decaffeinated roast coffee variants, the company distributes single-origin arabica variations from Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Tanzania, or India, as whole beans or ground coffee. Idillyum, a low-caffeine Arabica cultivated in El Salvador, is available seasonally. Besides shipping their packaged coffee production to Illy distributors in warehouses and marketplaces, Illy also maintains a network of cafés in shopping districts, airports, and museums; and, since 2009, has sold a line of coffee-flavoured energy drinks under the brand Illy Issimo. The brand was introduced to the US market in many major US cities by Coca-Cola in 2009.

The Premium Quality Italian Coffee Selection, which Contest Distribution Ships

The name Illy conveys the meaning of “cool” in Italian. Illy coffee tastes smooth and silky, with flavours of fruit, toast, caramel, and chocolate. Its pleasant aroma is composed of floral accents, sweet honey, and almond. Fans of Illy coffee believe that the consistency of flavour and the outstanding quality of the brew are the keys to their success.
