In 1933, Francesco Illy of Trieste, Italy, first perfected the espresso-making process by combining advanced science with Italian tradition. Here, 100% Arabica beans are carefully roasted to ensure a smooth, balanced and consistent taste. Medium roast pure Arabica coffee, finely ground for espresso. The decaffeinated version has the same rich flavor as the caffeinated grounds but with a caffeine content of less than 0.05%. 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.
