I have a hard time resisting a good shot of illy espresso. Whenever I’m out and about if there is a cafe serving illy in a machine like one of these I try to take a 5 minute pause from what I’m doing and throw one back. This machine happens to be in Milan in a bar not to far from the Piazza del Duomo. Years ago I had the opportunity to tour the illy factory in Trieste, Italy where the coffee beans are sorted and roasted and I can tell you that the amount of work that goes into making that short cup of espresso in incredible. What’s cool about a lot of places (but particularly in Italy) is you can easily find places like this with machines like this just walking around a city. That cup was delicious.
