In 1933, Francesco Illy of Trieste, Italy, first perfected the espresso-making process by combining advanced science with Italian tradition. Here, the finest 100% Arabica beans are carefully roasted to ensure a smooth, balanced and consistent taste. Medium-roast pure Arabica coffee in whole beans. Carefully roasted and air cooled for the best flavor. Packaged in air-pressurized tins, the coffee maintains its rich aroma and fresh flavor until the moment it's prepared. 8.8 oz. Made in Italy.
