If your coffee dreams are grander than a visit to the nearest Starbucks, here’s a chance of a lifetime waiting just for you! In catering to caffeine loving wanderlusters, the folks at Illy are all set to present a week-long luxury trip to coffee school in Ital that is complete with five-star accommodations, private jet transfer, Michelin-star fare and damn good coffee. Yes, that’s right!
Christened as the Ultimate Italian Coffee Package, the trip is available for six people and will commence in San Francisco at Illy’s flagship store. The excursion will begin with a hearty cuppa and progress further to Italy’s coffee capital Trieste that also happens to be the birth place of Illy. Participants will get to tour the iconic Illy headquarters, experiment with mixology and latte art and mingle with coffee experts and members of the Illy family while learning a thing or two about their lives.
The trip will also include a visit to two-Michelin-starred Harry’s Piccolo—an upscale bistro which heroes local produce—and Al Baggato which is renowned for its top-notch fish-based haute cuisine. Participants will further be put up at the lush Falisia Resort, a secluded five-star accommodation that offers pristine water views and a high-end spa amongst a list of other luxuries. The Ultimate Italian Coffee package costs $100,000 and can also be customized per your liking by adding a pit-stop or experience to the list. Ready to set on a coffee adventure with Illy?
