illy Dark Roast has a full body and the deep, rich flavor of a more intense espresso. Notes of cocoa and hints of caramel intertwine to create a coffee you will savor.

In addition, illy has made Dark Roast available in a variety of types to facilitate the brewing process:

  • Whole Bean - It's the perfect choice for coffee connoisseurs who prefer grinding the beans to suit their own individual taste and preparation method.
  • Fine Espresso Grind - Choose it if you enjoy personalizing the dosage of each espresso shot and the tactile pleasure of tamping the coffee.
  • Espresso Pods - Place a pre-measured illy pod into an E.S.E.-compatible espresso machine, and in less than 30 seconds you have rich, robust espresso!

illy Dark Roast comes either in a pressurized can to preserve the fresh flavor and aroma of the distinctive illy blend or an 18 count package of individually wrapped espresso pods.

  • 8.8 ounce can or 4.4 ounce box of premium illy coffee
  • Imported from Italy
How Does it Compare?

illy Dark Roast espresso holds up well in milk-based drinks like lattes, cappuccinos and macchiatos.

A shopper asked: Hi,
We have a supply of Illy ESE pods and were wondering if you can direct us to some espresso machines that use them. We have an Illy Francis Francis that is aging and close to dying. We are looking for as small a machine as possible.
I know other companies sell pods. We are just wondering about the number/variety of machines out there that use these pods (we like the taste, convenience and lack of plastic pod type)?.
Thank you.

Teri KStaff: For some small machine options that will use ESE pods without adaptation, check out the Saeco Poemia or Aroma, or even the DeLonghi EC155. All of these machines have dimensions under the Specs tab on our site so you can compare their size for your space. I have included a few links below, and let us know if you have any other questions!

the expresso is not as strong as Starbucks was. Is there a stronger blend I can use.. Lavazza is not at all strong enough ether. I enjoy Illy but would prefer a stronger coffee..

Just love the pods! I had been using Starbucks pods as there is a starbucks less than a mile from my home. Starbucks no longer sells the pods so I had to find pods somewhere else. Seattle Coffee Gear saved my life. The pods are really so much better that Starbucks.

I always used Starbucks Espresso Pods - but they are no longer making them (trying to make you switch to their new system). I received some of these for xmas - I absolutely love them - didn't think they could get better than 'Bucks - but wow - these far surpass 'em! You won't regret trying these! Thanx to SCG for carrying these.

Not only do we enjoy illy coffee especially in single shot pods (very inexpensive compared to getting an espresso at a coffee shop) but we also enjoy the wonderful and friendly service we receive from the SCG staff.
With our current espresso machine we have been enjoying illy coffee pods for the past 11 years.

Pods are only good for a single shot, not enough for me. Pods are quite expensive for a single shot. Flavor is good.

Instead of having an espresso (that may not be made correctly) at a cafe, make the perfect 30 second draw on your home espresso machine with illy E.S.E. pods.
I have been using them for the past 9 years and have not been disappointed.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Prefect Brew, Convenient, Great Taste

Cons:

These pods are great. I'm single and they are perfect for that shot in the morning when I don't want to grind my own or when I'm running late and don't want to have the mess to clean up. Just pop out the pod after and you're done. I almost feel guilty about not grinding the beans, tamping them down etc. But then I taste the end result and all is forgotten.

Pros:
There is no mess, Great Taste, Very smooth taste, Easy To Use

Cons:
Too easy
