The name 'Illy' points to the Italian origins in Trieste. Illy stands for the highest quality standards in the coffee market. Illycafé was founded in 1939 by Carlo Seitz from Basel, Francesco Illy and Roberto Hausbrandt from Trieste. The majority of the stake has been in Swiss hands since the beginning. Carlo Seitz acquired the necessary skills in Trieste and managed to develop the business in Switzerland into the finest address on the Swiss coffee market. Today, Illycafé is proud to be considered a pioneer of Swiss coffee art. Carlo Seitz and his team have made a significant contribution to the spread of the espresso culture in Switzerland. Today, Illycafé Thalwil is independant to Illy in Trieste Italy.
