The soul of Italy’s coffee lives in its coffee bars where centuries of tradition meet the modern barista’s expertise and understated, elegant style. If you’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy a genuine Italian coffee experience, close your eyes, and take yourself back. It’s an experience illy wants to share with the world, and one that gave rise to espressamente illy: a global network of cafes uniting the genuine Italian coffee bar tradition with illy's design sensibilities. This ambitious project – 200 cafes in key global cities of 34 countries, and growing fast – brings illy coffee and products designed to enhance coffee pleasure to passionate coffee lovers seeking to refuel, reflect, or just relax.


Whether situated in a bustling cosmopolitan shopping district, in a museum, or at a major international airport, every espressamente illy embodies the values of beauty, goodness and the constant pursuit of perfection. Each espressamente illy states a different concept of place, of tasting an international bar with a contemporary design. Where the uniqueness of illy espresso is accompanied by a selection of typical Italian food and the supply of all products in the world of illy.


Those who wish to discover or rediscover the pleasure of a good espresso can do it in a warm environment, evoking an experience of taste, style and excellence. At the same time, and quite wonderfully, no two espressamente illy cafes are exactly alike. Each offers a contemporary, local take on the tradition of the Italian coffee bar, so visitors feel comfortable and at home while enjoying the pleasure of good espresso and a selection of typical Italian bar cuisine, and an overall experience of taste, style and excellence.
