Meet Our Gold Cup Growers
To be an illy coffee grower means joining the family that pioneered direct trade. The result? Higher quality beans for you and a better livelihood for our growers. To honor their high standards, we invited twenty-seven growers from nine countries to participate in the first Ernesto Illy International Coffee Award ceremony at the United Nations.
Representing the winning coffee from each country, nine growers received our prestigious illy Gold Cup, and one grower from Ethiopia won the best of the best. Each of these winning coffee countries contributes its very best to create the balance and complexity of our legendary blend. Our aim, as always, is to bring you better coffee while crafting a better world.
