ILLY, THE LAST WORD IN COFFEE
THE CRÈME DE LA CRÈME OF COFFEE
PRINTEMPS X ILLY: COFFEE IN ALL ITS GUISES
Nothing beats an indulgent illy Caffè coffee break over the festive season. The Printemps Haussmann window displays invite you inside an enormous machine from northern Italy, where a scurry of ingenious squirrels play coffee waiters serving up a rich and full-bodied experience.
From harvesting coffee to drinking it, every step in producing the precious Italian beverage will be revealed... A theatrical production worthy of a commedia dell'arte and sure to impress the whole family… starting with you. ……
A MATTER OF TASTE AND TRADITION
Based in Trieste near the beautiful Adriatic since 1933, illy can rely on the excellence of its espressos to cement its reputation beyond its native region.
Carefully selected beans, custom blended and roasted to absolute perfection…
Three generations of the same family have kept authentic Italian coffee and the soul of the classic Italian bar alive, via the illy blend, a unique blend of 9 arabicas, as well as the vintage appeal of its legendary FrancisFrancis espresso machine.
Among the innovations that have propelled illy coffee to the level of "haute couture" drink is the Illetta, which uses pressure to limit steam and pressurised packaging to protect the coffee from oxidation and preserve all its flavour.
