Francesco Illy

The Art and Science of Espresso

Francesco Illy in 1933 has created business on trade of cocoa and coffee, but, eventually, has focused only on coffee, and today the coffee brand “illy” is known all around the world. From the moment of founding and up till now the “ILLYCafe” company remains as a family business. Today the third generation of “Illy” family operates the company, which produces legendary coffee.
The quality of the nowdays “illy” coffee is provided first of all with careful selection of raw materials which is made by the team of skilled experts of the company. Green coffee is bought not at the stock exchange, but directly from the manufacturing countries: Brazil, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Colombia, Kenya, etc.
