Trieste headquarter

The multimedia classroom

The Università del Caffè headquarters are in Trieste, where illycaffè was first founded and is still based. The city is therefore well-established as the world centre of coffee culture. It is here that the Master’s degree in Coffee Economics and Science – Ernesto Illy is held, as are all the courses offered by the Università del Caffè, which often include a tour round the illy plant.

The Trieste headquarters are equipped with a multimedia lecture room with a maxi screen, Dolby Surround and computer stations: it is also where the lessons are held, and acts as a tasting laboratory and bar.
