Illy Caffe procures sustainably grown Arabica beans exclusively from the Mineiro region of Brazil. This tropical savanna is one of the most biodiverse areas in the world, and these Brazilian beans add body to many existing coffee blends. On its own as a 100% single origin product it is easy to discern dark chocolate and volcanic ash in the aroma of this lightly roasted full-bodied coffee. It makes a smooth cup with no bitterness.

Best Answer:Since Illy uses a different packing preservation method than a local roaster (since it ships around the world), their coffee will provide an expiration date rather than a roast date. Illy (like most other roasters that ship internationally) will use a nitrogen flush to swap out the oxygen in their cans for nitrogen, which helps to extend how long their beans will still provide a good flavor and not taste stale. Typically, you will see an expiration on their cans of anywhere between several months to about a year or so from the date that you purchase it, because of this nitrogen flush to preserve the beans.
