The company has also set up a ‘flagship’ ‘Espressamente’ café in Paris which is owned and operated by them, and is considering setting up such flagship cafes in other places around the world, with India a probable destination for one such café revealed illycaffee’s coffee culture and university director Roberto Morelli on the sidelines of a press conference in Bangalore to announce the commencement of The Universita del Caffe (University of Coffee) at the India Extension Center in Bangalore.

Included in illycaffee’s global plans are 5-10 cafes in India this year, with the figure doubling by next year. The coffee major is looking for franchisees in India with whom they can work.

India also happens to be the only Asian country from which illycaffee sources Arabica coffee.

An agreement with the Indian Coffee Board is also being discussed. illycaffee will provide promotional materials including content for spreading the use of Coffee in India.

In Italy illycaffee spends around € 1 million towards promotional and marketing activities.
