Opinions about Illy brand espresso

Buen Provecho | May 23, 2002 12:35 AM

I live in Seattle and am wondering if the presence of Illy espresso beans and pre-ground espresso is like the proverbial "coals to Newcastle" situation. It seems to have popped up relatively recently in our local grocery store, and I also noticed it in the movie, El Hijo de la Novia (there's that rampant product placement again). Anyway, I'm curious if others have tried it and think it's worth the $ - today, while browsing at Sur La Table I saw a variety of Illy cans, and out of curiosity checked the price, and it was an astounding $11.95 for 8 oz. Any feedback welcome. Thanks.
