Introducing our official coffee partner, illy
If you are yet to discover illy, then let us give you the run down. As our official coffee partner, illy is used in all our coffees served over in the Gran Caffè – located on the ground floor next to Liverpool Street station.
Our team at Eataly have scoured Italy in search of the very best Italian coffee. After plenty of research and lots and lots of coffee tastings, he and the Eataly teams decided that Italian coffee company illy would be our partner and the brand that would feed both our hard-working Eatalians and of course, our customers.
illy use 100% Arabica blend in their coffee, that means they blend from nine top quality Arabica beans.
Another reason that sits close to our hearts, is ensuring that we remain quintessentially Italian whilst sourcing our products sustainably and ethically. At illy, sustainability sits at the heart of the brand. As well as collaborating with local communities, they are also the first Italian coffee company to be BCorp certified.
