illy Classico is known all over the world, exported from its company’s base in Trieste, Italy, to every corner of the globe. Classico is illy’s signature blend, and like all Illy's coffee is created exclusively from Arabica beans.
Here you get Classico in a pod specifically adapted for use with a lungo, and which therefore brews a slightly larger cup than an espresso.
With this classic illy blend, you get a coffee created from a blend of 9 different Arabica beans, which has been continuously refined to perfection for over 80 years. An authentic and famous signature blend, known for its taste of lingering sweetness with subtle notes of jasmine, caramel and citrus.
In other words, here is a coffee blend that represents the best of Italian coffee culture, the popularity of which has remained unabated for decades.
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.
