The Most Beautiful Coffee Experience
The Y5 utilizes the illy proprietary iperEspresso capsule system featuring a two-phase extraction process protected by five global patents. The iperEspresso capsule manages key details of the espresso making process including precisely calibrating temperature, pressure and extraction time to create a beautiful coffee experience with one touch simplicity. The smart design of the capsule ensures the coffee never comes in contact with the machine, for a pure espresso each time and easier maintenance.

One touch of the Y5 sets in motion a 30-second process where iperEspresso capsules becomes "hyperinfused" and emulsified (two phases) to deliver a velvety, aromatic, rich and balanced espresso, topped by a silky and remarkably long-lasting crema.

The iperEspresso capsules are available in different varieties delivering an authentic Italian coffee that is flawlessly consistent, smooth, balanced, and never bitter. Illy's legendary nine-bean Arabica blend available in medium, dark roast, and decaffeinated plus iperEspresso capsules for "long" espresso.  Illy also offers its MONOARABICA iperEspresso single-origin Arabica coffees, which are found in the illy blend. Each illy MONOARABICA coffee has a flavor and aroma profile that encapsulates the distinctive origin including Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Columbia, Ethiopia, and India.  iperEspresso capsules come 21 to a pack with a price of $18.00 and are available at select retailers and at www.illyusa.com.

Owners of the new Y5 can also take advantage of RENEW(SM), the illy iperEspresso Recycle Program.  Illy has partnered with leading industry organizations to provide an innovative solution to recycle iperEspresso coffee capsules. By collecting used capsules and mailing them in to be recycled or dropping off at participating retailers, waste is diverted from landfills.  Sustainability is core to illy's values and its investments, the company was recognized for the second consecutive year as a 2014 World's Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent center of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance.
