The entire espresso world in an illy capsule
To discover the espresso world you need the one and only, outstanding quality blend of illy. Deriving from 9 varieties of 100% authentic Arabica coffee, this blend remains unchanged in more than 140 countries worldwide. You need a barista for the perfect interaction of coffee and water, at the precise time and temperature. Pre-infusion, a pause and finally brewing of the ultimate, velvety espresso with its characteristic lasting cream... Or you simply need an illy Iperespresso capsule, which encloses everything inside of it.

Print advertisment created by TBWA, Greece for illy, within the category: Non-Alcoholic Drinks.

I had the same feeling - the artwork would make a perfect home page for a minisite of Illy

nice art, but the reflections are not correct especially on the cup which is on the right side.

Dislike. Very first-circle.

THe principle is fine. But because you need to blow up the cutaway shot on the right so much to get the detail in, it's not as neat a connection as it could be between the cafe bar and the capsule.

Also, I'll never understand why you'd give a copy job in English to a writer for whom English is clearly not their first language. It's not bad, it's jsut not very slick.
