illy Cold Brew in the limelight for summer 2023 with “Cocomint”

The unmistakable illy 100% Arabica blend, the freshness of mint leaves and the delicate, exotic flavour of coconut come together to create a new, irresistible recipe

Trieste, May 18th, 2023illycaffè, the global leader in high-quality sustainable coffee, is freshening up summer 2023 with a new recipe based on its Cold Brew, the natural soft drink made with cold-brewed coffee elevated by illy’s unique 100% Arabica brand.

Cocomint, the latest recipe developed by the University of Coffee in collaboration with illy’s experts and available exclusively in all the illy’s single-brand outlets in Italy, France, UK and US, is a new flavour experience that evoke tropical and exotic memories, just like your favourite holiday! The new drink, made with the original Cold Brew Flat or Aria – with a natural, soft, and persistent head of foam – is enhanced by the sweetness of coconut milk and the freshness of mint.

Anyone can add their own personal touch to this creative recipe by stirring some coconut milk and mint into the Cold Brew for an explosion of freshness that packs a visual punch as well: the addition of mint will turn the drink bright green.

A unique experience will only be available at the illy retail stores of Monte Napoleone in Milan and Giardini Reali in Venice: the drink will be served in an amazing cloud of vapour, an exclusive experience developed by the University of Coffee’s docents, that will also be accompanied by two macarons and some fresh spearmint leaves to add an extra kick.

Cocomint is much more than a simple coffee: it is an alternative and sensory way to enjoy the illy blend’s rich aroma combined with the freshness and elegance typical of a summer drink made with illy cold brew.
