Product Description

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.

Good Coffee, but I find the price unjustifiedReview by dale
In all honesty, I haven't found much difference in taste quality between any of the premium brands of coffee. Yes, they taste a little different from each other, and you might find you have a minor preference, but this isn't like wines, where the differences between a $15 and a $50 bottle of wine can be huge. There is more difference in how coffee extract than taste, so you often burn a few cups until you get the grind right when you change brands, a small nuisance.

I've tried this blend and a couple of the Lavazza blends, not much difference in quality to my taste, so I would go with the better priced Lavazza coffees, if you want Italian. Otherwise, they are both comparable in quality to a good locally roasted product.

There is a difference that isn't mentioned, Lavazza and Illy beans are nitrogen flushed, which I'm told will keep them fresher for 2 -3 weeks longer , compared to your typical local roasted coffee. Enjoy, unless you have a very special palate, its all good, and save yourself some money by avoiding illy. (Posted on 6/2/2015)
