The journey of coffee started in Ethiopia and today it has been across the world. This ancient bean surely has many stories to tell. When traders carried its magic to Italy, it took root in the bustling cafes of Venice. Today, a new wave of coffee lovers seek out the perfect beans for brewed perfection, reviving the love for a simple, delicious cup. Illy Caffé has been a significant contributor to the history of modern coffee.
From 1933, the Illy family brewed a coffee revolution. Francesco’s “illeta” machine paved the way for modern espresso, while his pressurized packaging sealed in freshness for exports. His son, Dr. Ernesto, ignited scientific research, creating pre-measured pods and revolutionary bean selection methods. Their passion bloomed into the iconic illy Art Collection and Brazil Award, making illy synonymous with premium coffee in over 140 countries, now led by Francesco’s grandson, Andrea, who carries the torch of innovation and coffee excellence.

If you’re looking for a coffee machine that’s compact and cute…
We recommend the Illy Y3.3 which is available in a lively range of colors like bright red, powder blue and soft white. These machines may be small, but don’t let their size fool you! They pack quite the punch. The Y3.3 uses illy’s iperEspresso coffee capsules and has 2 operations to make an espresso or large cup of brewed coffee, depending on your preference. The minimalist design allows you to fit it anywhere, and is especially useful if you have a small kitchen or kitchenette.
We love the sleek design and playful pop of color! Prepare a full-bodied espresso with a rich crema with just the touch of a button. If you prefer pod machines to capsule but don’t want a bulky machine taking up counter space in your kitchen, try the Illy ESE machine, available in deep black and bright red.
If you’re looking for a compact and programmable coffee machine…
Get ready for café-perfect espresso with the Illy X7.1, a compact but powerful machine inspired by 1960s Italian design. Its sleek curves boast a modern control panel for effortless brewing which allows you to go from rich espresso to creamy comfort with ease. Form meets function in the X7.1, with advanced technology like the steel thermoblock which ensures consistent temperature, while the Pannarello wand crafts luscious milk foam for cappuccinos and lattes. Its two-stage process delivers intensely aromatic espresso with a velvety crema, while the convenient capsules mean minimal clean-up.
This machine is perfect for those who enjoy espresso and cappuccino in equal measure, and is a strong first step into the world of home kitchen coffee machines.
