Features ILLY Espresso Coffee CLASSICO
We start this ILLY espresso coffee review by looking at their CLASSICO Blend.
As soon as you open the finely branded tin can, the aroma of yummy potent coffee permeates the air.
I liked it. I brewed my espresso coffee and was admittedly anxious to see how it flavoured. For the record, I am personally not a fan of really bitter espresso coffee.
I know some espresso coffee lovers live for bitterness, but that is not me.
The ILLY Espresso Coffee CLASSICO was robust, strong, full of taste, but not very much bitter.

Ground Espresso Classico Medium Roast Coffee
I was amazed by how much of the coffee beans’ natural flavour was expressed.
There’re delicate notes of citrus and caramel punctuate the whole experience.
This is a blend of nine different Arabica coffee beans sourced from around the world.
Keep in mind that this was an extremely intentional blend, and it is obvious judging by the taste. I have encountered blends before that look more like a hodgepodge of random beans than a curated collection of aromas and flavours.
Fortunately, ILLY Espresso Coffee CLASSICO has achieved a wonderfully strong and robust blend with their CLASSICO Blend.
I appreciated ILLY Espresso’s decision to medium roast in this CLASSICO blend.
The outcome is a very balanced blend that is full of natural flavour while delivering and desirable smokiness.
This is a great choice for the discerning coffee espresso lover who favours a medium roast.
ILLY Espresso Coffee CLASSICO is packed in an air-free, pressurized can that improves and seals in oils and aromas for ideal coffee.
Smooth, flawlessly consistent, balanced, and never bitter.
