Now you can have it all in one machine! Whether you’re in the mood to savor espresso based drinks or rich aromatic brewed coffee, the NEW Y5 Duo does both at the touch of a button. This simply designed machine utilizes the highest quality standards including a proprietary brewing technology that never allows the coffee to come in contact with the machine, thus insuring the purist espresso and coffee, cup after cup. The compact Y5 features a sleek and sturdy aluminum and tempered glass body. Convenient front panel controls and water tank make this machine extremely versatile. With two touch-sensitive icons you can choose to make espresso or coffee in seconds.
For the price of $299, you can purchase a new line of iper capsule machines for home and small office, expressly designed for use with both the new brewed coffee and current iperEspresso capsules. These machines include the Francis Francis for illy Y5 DUO and Cuisinart for illy Buona Tazza machines.
Beginning in February in the U.S., Illy will offer two types of iper brewed coffee capsules – medium and dark roast followed by decaffeinated capsules in late spring. Each capsule prepares a 7.4 oz cup of coffee and is available in a new “soft cube” pack of 18 capsules at an approximate retail price of $16.49. They will be sold at select retailers including Bed, Bath and Beyond, Bloomingdales and at illy.usa.com
