illycaffè Y3.2, Espresso And Drip Coffee Machine For Compact Spaces

illycaffè’s Y3.2 single serve espresso and coffee machine that combines function and form to inspire coffee lovers’ daily ritual.

First introduced at the global furniture and design fair, Salone del Mobile in Milan, the new Y3.2 is a compact, easy-to-use machine that perfectly combines aesthetics and practicality. At a height of 10 inches, width of 3.94 inches and depth of 11.73 inches, Italian designer Piero Lissoni has created a beautiful object for everyday coffee use.


The Y3.2 has clean, minimalist lines and easy to distinguish push buttons to prepare either espresso or filter coffee.  Within illy’s wide range of espresso and coffee machines, the Y3.2 is the entry level machine for home, office, dorm room, or gift with a price starting at $149.00 in color black.

Built for the illy Iperespresso capsule system, the Y3.2 features a water tank that holds 25.4 ounces of water, utilizes a power save function when not in use, and has an adjustable cup shelf.

illy Iperespresso is a technological innovation protected by five patents entirely conceived and developed for home espresso brewing at the illycaffè Research & Innovation labs in Trieste, Italy.  Unlike the traditional preparation process in which the espresso is brewed all at once through percolation, in the Iperespresso capsule, the coffee is extracted in two phases: first infusion, then emulsion. This two-stage process ensures the optimal extraction of the coffee’s aromas, making it possible to brew espresso that has a smooth and full-bodied aroma with a rich, velvety, and long-lasting crema.  With Iperespresso, the coffee never comes into contact with any part of the machine.
