This may come as no surprise when you learn that Francis Francis machines are brought to you by illy, the celebrated Italian espresso coffee served in the finest restaurants and caf és and enjoyed by coffee connoisseurs worldwide.
Founded in 1933 by Francesco Illy, illycaff è produces and sells a unique blend of high-quality coffee made from nine types of pure Arabica beans. A careful balance of ingredients from South and Central America, India, and Africa creates the unmistakable illy flavor—always identical in any espresso cup, wherever it is drunk around the world.

The forward-thinking company promotes and disseminates the culture of coffee by continually reinventing tradition.
