Illy Container Letdown

Yesterday Anne and I headed up to the Time Warner Center to see the much-anticipated Illy container kiosk. We were expecting to see this:

We were promised, we were expecting, we even went early and it was advertised all over the mall.We got this:


It’s not the same thing! This cheap imitation was nowhere near as cool as the original one we were promised, and we felt cheated. But after we got over our disappointment a little, we decided to try some of the complimentary espresso anyway. Here are some pictures of me drinking the “espresso” drink:


1. apprehension at the prospect 2. trying the shot


3. tasting the shot 4. accepting my fate

The shot was, well, can I even call it a shot if it didn’t taste like one? It looked and tasted like more coffee, though it did have a bit of crema on top. I don’t think I’d want to have one of their espresso machines at home, no matter how quick it is, or how cool the machine looks (!)


Also on display (and much cooler than the actual kiosk), was an espresso cup chandelier being auctioned for charity. So if you’ve got a cool 60,000 to share with the staff of Road to Epiphany, we wouldn’t mind (although we don’t know where to put it)…
