Brewing the perfect cup of coffee is an art form. No one knows that better than illy caffè. An Italian family business, founded in Trieste in 1933, illy is committed to offering the greatest coffee to the world. Everything "made in illy" is enhanced by beauty and art, which represent founding values of the brand, starting from its logo–designed by artist, James Rosenquist–and including the renowned illy Art Collection, comprised of over 100 cups designed by international artists.

This experience offers the best of both worlds for the coffee and art lover. You will enjoy a private tour of the SFMOMA SECA, Art Award Exhibition, and a private class at the newest Università del Caffè (University of Coffee) with illy’s Master Barista, Heidi Rasmussen. Transform your ordinary coffee beverage into a work of art in a cup with hands-on guidance and techniques for your espresso routine and latte art pouring.
