illy Medium Roast offers a smooth, balanced flavor enhanced by aromatic notes of caramel and chocolate with a light flowery top note.

In addition, illy has made Medium 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 Medium 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

Kevin V asked: I just received the Saeco Via Venezia machine and was very excited to get it going (it was a gift for my wife). With it I purchased some Illy ESE pods in medium and dark roast for convenience. I understand you won't get the same quality from pods as from fresh roast and fresh ground coffee, but I was shocked at how bitter the espresso was. After making 2 each of the medium and dark roasts, tasting before and after adding fresh steamed milk, I was severely disappointed. We use Reverse Osmosis (RO) water and I cleaned the entire unit prior to use, also using the pressurized portafilter.

Tomorrow we're going to try the beans that were included as a free gift from Seattle Coffee Gear (I have a burr grinder). Fingers crossed it's better!

Has anyone else run into this issue? If so, any advice as to how to make the pods less bitter? Could I be doing something wrong?

Brad P: Not sure if this would help your situation as we have a different machine. We seem to get better results if we dampen the pod a bit before we start brewing. Aug 27, 2013

Kathy F: My only experience with the Illy pods has been great - both the medium and dark roasts. They have both worked well in my Francis Francis machine. Since then I've switched over to the Lavazza Gran Crema Pods as they are much better value and taste just as good. Hope this was helpful. Aug 27, 2013

Alfred K: I have the same machine but I never tried pods. I drink americano. A little hot water in the microwave. I then grind a scoop and a little more of really good espresso I buy from a local roaster. I pull 4 shots, so it is really diluted. No milk. Love the way it gets the day started. Aug 27, 2013

I have had a Starbucks Barista espresso machine for a couple of years and all of a sudden, they stopped providing the supplies for my machine.
Their mistake, as I know the Illy coffee from my homeland in Europe. I am not going to miss them.
So we ordered for the first time from the Seattle coffee gear. I loved the medium roast. My husband loves the dark roast.
