With Intenso you get a classic aromatic Espresso, which has been roasted in the best traditions of a true Italian coffee pioneer.
Intenso is based on Illy's famous Classico coffee, but being a darker roast makes it slightly stronger. The result is an intense and full-bodied Espresso with notes of cocoa and dried fruit, which ends with a pleasantly long aftertaste.
Intenso is delivered in as coffee beans, which you can grind at home to fit to your own taste.
The ground coffee can be brewed on filter coffee machines, French presses, and of course in Espresso machines.
For the optimal experience, we recommend that you grind the coffee just before you use it.
Illy was founded in Trieste, Italy in 1933, and is still led by the descendants of the company's founder, Francesco Illy. The classic red-and-white Illy logo is a familiar sight in fashionable cafes around the world, and every day millions of cups of Illy coffee are enjoyed in cafes, offices and homes across the globe. Illy is one of the pioneers of the coffee industry, known not only for its coffee, but also for having invented the modern Espresso machine and cutting-edge packaging.
