There is a whole world in a cup of coffee: cultures that meet, the aroma and exoticism of marvellous places, history, art and travel. There is also science, expertise and a great deal of work and passion. Which voice can tell the story and the thousand secrets of coffee – one of the most renowned Italian excellences in the world – better than the man who has made excellence his professional and life mission? Andrea Illy, the concrete and visionary entrepreneur, accompanies us in the story of his family and company in the pursuit of the dream of his grandfather Francesco, the founder: to offer the best coffee in the world. In the many histories of food that have been published, rarely is the story of the entrepreneur, the expert, the innovator and the man as intertwined as in A coffee dream, a book that aims to be an extraordinary and positive message on what passion and the work to create a product of quality can express in terms of beauty, pleasure, respect and innovation.
