A Note on illy Espresso Capsules: Next generation technology makes iperEspresso uniquely flavourful, full-bodied, and smooth with unbelievably long-lasting crema. illy iperEspresso is only possible with the revolutionary iperEspresso capsule, a two-stage method of espresso extraction. In the first stage (iper-infusion), within the iperChamber, coffee is infused with water under ultra high pressure. This process extracts virtually all the flavour and aroma creating iperEspressoâ€™s extraordinary rich, complex, and unique flavour. In the second stage (emulsification), high pressure forces the coffee through the patented e-valve where the aromatic oils are emulsified to create a full-bodied espresso with a smooth, velvety and long- lasting crema.
