So I picked this up at CVS today..for free. If you DON’T have a CVS rewards card, you should! I’ve picked up multiple free itmes this way. Oddly enough, walked in to buy coffee!
So here’s the low down on Illy:
Founded in 1933 by Francesco Illy in Trieste, Italy, illy caffè produces and sells a single blend of premium quality coffee. The illy Blend is made from nine varieties of meticulously selected pure Arabica beans. The unmistakable illy taste is the result of a perfect balance of beans coming from South and Central America, India, and Africa to create the undeniably consistent illy flavor: always the same, no matter where in the world it’s enjoyed.
Today, illy can be found in over 140 countries on 5 continents.
There’s a lot more info, but that’s the basics about the brand themselves!
I loved this! Okay, it was free and I would have gotten it either way…but it’s always nice when you actually like something!
– Strong. When I want espresso I want ESPRESSO.
– Not sugared down. A lot of companies are slapping “espresso” on labels like its going out of style. What’s in there…like a tablespoon of watered down espresso?
– Truly a rich and decadent taste.
– Rich the way espresso should be, with flavor.
I suggest you pick one up! I have checked into the brand and they also sell coffe & espresso for machines. Has anyone tried these? I’d love to know!
