399811399811B002IEVJRYAIFLY2HF8NS8UAndre Lawrence0041338940800A Good Flavor! Issimo's "Illy's Cappuccino:" A Critical Review.I'm not a big fan of iced coffee, this week being the first I've ever drank cold coffee intentionally!

Illy's Cappuccino has a nice flavor but not as versatile as iced tea but this drink tastes a lot like Miami's version of "café con leche" so this will go over well down here.

Illy's Cappuccino...4 stars.
399812399812B002IEVJRYAKMEY1BSHSDG7J. Arena0041338940800Nice summertime (or any time) beverage!This drink has a light but refreshing cappuchino flavor, and it is just the right size for me. Don't expect a strong coffee flavor, and you won't be disappointed. If you enjoy coffee drinks, this is perfect choice while on the go!
399813399813B002IEVJRYA1QR76SYGTXJN5Adam "ashaef"0041338940800A good cappuccinoFlavorful, sweet, and delicious, this little coffee in a can provided a nice morning boost without the jitters. Great refrigerated for a cool and refreshing cappuccino.
399814399814B002IEVJRYA13GZCHAMKWYBTVikki Hallen "lizardwitch"0041338940800Smooth and Tasty..for a coffee!Ok, so only an 8.45 oz can..but, really, if you take the time to sip on it, it's really good and worth it! Having 100 calories per can, made with low fat milk..it's showing 19g of carbs and 18g of sugar. A nice "treat" for a summer drink. Has a nice smooth cocoa/coffee blend. Not bitter at all, but you get that "expresso" taste, clearly. I have bought Illy brand coffee before and this is rich and mellow like what I had bought, enjoy!
399815399815B002IEVJRYA1YJMG0QJXZLD4Rosemarie0041338940800Pleasant enoughSummer is upon us and we are always looking for some cool drink to satisfy us in the heat. illy, issimo has always been thought of as a fine distributor of coffee.
They are on the up and up with their products disclosing all that is in the can, yes I said can, these coffee's are in the can.

Before I continue allow me to state what the nutritional break down is:
Total fat 1.5
Cholesterol 5 mg
Sodium 60 mg
Total Carb 19 g
Fiber less than 1 g
Sugars 18 g
Protein 4 g.
Calcium 10%

The ingredients are:
Coffee, Low Fat milk, sugar, cocoa powder, Potassium bicarbonate, cellulose gel,
cellulose gum,carrageenan.
And believe it or not they even listed the Caffeine content: 81 mg/8.45 oz

The first thing I did when this came in the mail was get out a nice tall glass and fill it with some nice clear spring water ice cubes.
DO NOT SHAKE was on the label but I did it instinctively by mistake, actually I did it before I noticed I was not supposed to.

My first thought when I took that first taste was, I am not too impressed, but the flavor is kind of nice, not to sweet and not to strong. I do not like strong coffee.
It had the right marriage of coffee to milk to cocoa. It is smooth and light and the flavors are very subtle. The only thing is that it is not very impressive,.
Totally underwhelming, I think I can make a better iced coffee in my own kitchen, in fact I have.

The bottom line is this is a nice sturdy product, if you offer me a can when I come to visit I would not turn it down but would I go out a purchase it for myself? No, I am sorry it is nice but not that nice.

399816399816B002IEVJRYA2OCDK0BOW6UCYAntigone Walsh0041338940800DeliziosoI enjoyed this canned coffee drink chilled. It had a nice coffee flavor with a kiss of cocoa. It was not to milky, oily or sweet. The slim cans are easily portable with convenient pop top tabs. This summer I will skip the noxious energy drinks, overly sugared juices and steaming hot coffee and enjoy this instead.
399817399817B002IEVJRYA2LXX47A0KMJVXM. Erb0041338940800Very smooth tasting but a little too sweet for my tastesMy wife and I are big coffee drinkers. As an International Flight Attendant, she has traveled a lot to Europe and says that this illy cappucino tastes like a "European" coffee. When I asked her what she meant by that she said that it was smooth and mellow. I concur. And I guess it makes sense that it tastes "European" because illy is an Italian company.

This tastes nothing like a Starbucks French Roast or Sumatra, for instance, which are both dark and bold tasting. The illy Cappucino is way more subtle in its flavor. Subtle but still there is a distinctive coffee taste that I enjoyed. There is added sugar however and for me, it's a too sweet. I do not normally sweeten my coffee beverages much if at all. Many people do sweeten their coffee though and for those, the sweetness may be just right for them.

The ingredients seem pretty straightforward and that is good. Regarding the sugar, a single serving, 1 cup, contains 18g of sugar. A teaspoon of sugar is approximately 4g so this essentially has the equivalent of 4.5 teaspoons of sugar per serving.

I drank and I liked. But I would not purchase again because of the added sugar. But if you don't mind the sugar and want a convenient way to enjoy a cappucino coffee beverage, you'd probably like this illy coffee drink.
399818399818B002IEVJRYA27H9DOUGY9FOSK. Harris "Film aficionado"0031338854400Smoother Than Other Illi Issimo Products, Likable Enough But Not Something I Would FrequentThrough the years, I've tried just about every pre-made coffee beverage imaginable. I am a coffee lover and enthusiast, so I'm married to the idea of buying a can or bottle of a delicious coffee based product that I'll live happily ever after with. My experiences, however, have yet to yield bliss. Some are just fine, but nothing has ever made me say "Wow! I'd like to drink this all the time!" I had heard some positive things about the illy issimo brand, so given the opportunity--I sampled both their Caffe and their Cappuccino.

Caffe (2 1/2 stars) is, in their own words, an Italian Espresso Style Coffee Drink. At first, I thought this drink had a strong and pronounced coffee flavor. But something is slightly off. The more I drank, it seemed too sweet and too bitter at once, which is a strange and not altogether pleasant combination. As it is essentially comparable to drinking an iced espresso, it may not be as palatable as some of their other creations. But, it's not really something that I would sample again. And at an approximate cost of $2.00 per can (only 6.8 ounce), this serves more as a caffeine boost than a refreshing beverage. Made with real Arabica coffee, I was also intrigued by the "Do Not Shake" warning which left me with the unappetizing visual of the particulate matter that must still be in the liquid drink (fine for Turkish coffee, not so appealing for something in a can).

Cappucino (3 1/2 stars) is, in their own words, an Espresso Style Coffee Drink with Lowfat Milk and Cocoa. So, at 8.45 ounces this is a slightly bigger drink. As some of the harshness is buffered by the milk and cocoa combination, this one easily had a more pleasant taste. Still, a bit sweet for my liking but better overall. I'm still not blown away and I won't be a regular purchaser of this, or any illi issimo brand drinks, but I didn't dislike this one. Nice enough once in a while, but not inspiring enough to purchase a case. I guess I'll remain a fresh made kind of coffee drinker! KGHarris, 6/12.
399819399819B002IEVJRYA1L7R2764ED46YG. Hembrough0041338854400Good But Not ExcellentI drank this at work today for a boost of energy, which it provided, but as far as flavor, it was good but not excellent. It doesn't stand out to me anymore than any of the other cold coffee drinks I have purchased, including Starbucks and Seattle's Best. I have recently been purchasing the generic brand at our Aldi grocery store to save money and it's just as good as any of the brand name ones. So, I would drink this again, but I wouldn't make an effort to purchase this brand. I'm happy with any cold coffee drink, and purchase according to price.
399820399820B002IEVJRYA2UT0FWM1DHKFJRare's Reviews0051338854400Yum!This little can of cappuccino has an amazing coffee flavor that's strong enough to wake you up, but isn't going to overwhelm you. It's got a hint of sweetness that (unlike other popular brands) won't give you a sugar rush. It's a perfect pick-me-up after a long day. With only 100 calories for the can, it won't make you feel like you ruined your diet. The price is right too. Love this drink!
399821399821B002IEVJRYADY836HK6QSYRardnam "ardnam"0041338854400Refreshing,Enjoyed very much. I tried this over regular ice but I recommend using crushed ice. Strong coffee flavor. Nice size. If you don't like strong coffee I don't think you will enjoy this drink. I especially like that this drink was not too sweet.
399822399822B002IEVJRYA3091RP0SPZLMNBB0041338854400Cappuccino-YumThe Cappuccino illy is my kind of taste. It has a good coffee flavor, slight sweetness and is refreshing. I also like the fact that an 8.45 oz. can is only 100 calories. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars because I prefer to get a freshly made cappuccino at a coffee place, but this will do fine too.
399823399823B002IEVJRYA3094EPI56GKZ6Kristen E. Bogren "Kristen Bogren"0051338854400Refreshing!I really enjoyed this iced coffee drink. It was light with a small taste of Cocoa... It wasn't as sweet as my normal Starbucks iced drinks and had a nice strong coffee taste. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future...
399824399824B002IEVJRYA3FMPT5IH0CJ50Lindsey0041338854400Yum!I'm a cold coffee and milk kind of girl. I don't like overly sweet drinks. Illy Issimo Cappucino is great! It is very comparable in taste to Starbucks Bottles Frappucino in the Coffee Flavor. Only, this little can has half the calories of the Starbucks drink and half the sugar. (Without losing anything to taste and no artificial sweetener.) I'd say that is a big win!

One can contains 81 mg of caffeine. 100 calories. 1.5g fat. 5 mg cholesterol. 60 mg sodium. 19 g carbs. 4g protein. 10% RDV calcium.
399825399825B002IEVJRYA3LN4AOPBIUQWRN. Glenn "Glenn."0051338854400Nice Coffee Flavor.I am not usually one for canned drinks but I found myself interested in the Illy Issimo Coffee Drink Cappuccino, and I really enjoyed the taste of this beverage. I did however make the mistake of shaking the can before opening it, I then read the instructions and had to wait a few minutes before opening it, also I split the drink in half and tried it warm and cold, it is definitely better warm than cold in my opinion. I would like to see it in a bigger size, but it is still a very good drink.
399826399826B002IEVJRYA1UMSB7LAW0RIRWriter of Books - Mage - Mom to Two "Writer, ...0041338854400A nice change, wish it was stronger.While the can is pretty small for the price, I liked the flavor, although it's more watery than I'd like. If this had a stronger flavor, I'd give it 5 stars.
399827399827B002IEVJRYALDAF4VVLFRHPPatricia L. Brouillette0041338854400Ideal for a hot summer dayThis is a,great idea to stick in the refrigator and keep cool till it is time to drink. It taste just like a regular cappuccino, just cold. It has a little sugar already, although my own personal taste would prefer a little more sweetened. It is a nice for if you are on the go and you don't have the time to make your own or stop to buy one.
399828399828B002IEVJRYA12E0Y0J6584RTSeanna0051338768000If you love Cappuccion's or Latte's this is for you!The Illy Issimo Cappuccino drink is smooth and refreshing. A wonderful cold 8.45 oz cappuccino that is made with lowfat milk and cocoa and is only 100 calories. The drink is made from All natural with 100% percent Arabica coffee and sweetened with beet sugar. I truly enjoyed this and can't wait to try the other flavors from Illy Issimo.
399829399829B002IEVJRYA2R1HUYHXV7H18Kristi G., mom of Sage0041338768000RefreshingI enjoyed this. It was better than bottled Starbuck's to me. I'm not big, big on store type coffee drinks either, although I like them very well fresh- but this one was good - it let the coffee shine though, which was full bodied in flavor. There was just a hint of cocoa and it wasn't so sweet that I felt like I was drinking something that should be a milk shake. It was a good COFFEE drink. I got a bit of pick me up from the caffeine as well. It didn't last long enough though - it was gone too fast - I think it would be better as a 12 ounce drink!
399830399830B002IEVJRYA3BKNXX8QFIXIVJ. Finkel "Jack of Trades"0031338768000Tastes...OkIlly Issimo's Cappucino in a can reminds me of the similar Starbucks frappuccino bottles. The drinks from Starbucks are slightly sweeter and have about 25% more calories than this Cappucino. While I prefer this drink, it is far from tasting like a freshly brewed iced cappucino. The flavor is not as pronounced and the aroma is very weak. There is a noticeable earthy undertone that tastes a bit like wood. One can has a little over 80mg of caffeine.
399831399831B002IEVJRYA1JBBR4MNGQ70GFalkor The White Luck Dragon0041338768000Just Add Ice Cubes For A Delicious Summer Coffee DrinkThis cappucino has just the right combination of good quality coffee and cocoa. It makes a refreshing delicious slightly decadant drink when poured over ice cubes. Great for someone who loves both coffee and chocolate and so convenient right out of the can.
399832399832B002IEVJRYA3HOBP97RKKY0MJ. Wiles Parker0031338768000Good not GreatI actually did enjoy this at first but by the time I hit the bottom of the can I found I liked it less. Not that illy issimo Cappucino is bad. I like that it has the cream in it and is not straight coffee, but it's still not quite up to par with some other coffee drinks I've had in the past. Decent, but it's not very strong in flavor, which is nice if you're not a big coffee drinker. Could have used a little more flavor for me and been slightly less of that "out of a can" type of coffee drink. Best chilled, for sure, but even then it was still a little lacking.
399833399833B002IEVJRYADLVFFE4VBT8A. Dent "Aragorn"0031338768000What comes in a can can'tI understand that, when it comes to coffees, something that comes in a can can't compete with the real thing and this 'issimo' doesn't. It's Cappucino because the writing on the can says it is but, Cappuccino or not, it's made out of coffee, a little cocoa, some sugar and milk so most ingredients are present. Only the the fresh taste and the fresh aroma, the froth and the Cappuccino steam are missing.

Now, if we are to compare bland make-believe Cappuccinos, the 'illy issimo' that comes in a can is almost indistinguishable from the Starbucks version that comes in a bottle. How do I know? I did a blind test and I found it was difficult to tell which was which except for the Starbucks being a little sweeter and bolder but only a very little.

My fair rating should be a bland 3-stars (It's Okay). Drink the 'issimo' if you must or if the real thing is unobtainable but it's coffee that comes in a can so don't expect the impossible.
399834399834B002IEVJRYA1MKPMJPD22YYS. Cline "Retired Fed"0031338768000From Coca~Cola Cappuccino to Go I like it but ....I have had numerous brands of Cappuccino-in-a-can to go; this one, by Coca~Cola aka "Coke"; is somewhat different. After having it in the refrigerator overnight.

Overall with my experience with others; I give it an ok - there are better ones out there, however, this one packs a lot of punch with CAFFEINE even though it only packs 100 calories in one can. In my humble opinion, for those who just can't wake up in the morning and have a long day at work or for College/University students would find this handy for their term exam time for it WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE!

It was not bitter, but it did taste old even though the expiration date was well ahead of time; it did have something of a old-coffee taste that had been sitting around for quite some time, however, that could be Coca~Cola / Coke's version of how they created this Illy Issimo Coffee Cappuccino. It was well balanced but I did find the after-taste somewhat bothersome, that which I am exceeding picky about.

For want of a better words - When one drinks this, the balance of cream or milk, coffee, and sugar were all done exceptionally well but, the coffee itself to me, personally, tasted something that had been sitting for several days - but that might be just me.
399835399835B002IEVJRYA2MUGFV2TDQ47KLynrie "Oh HELL no"0041338768000A Pleasant TreatThis cappucino is a tasty, pleasant treat. The beverage has a nice amount of coffee, chocolate and milk, a balanced flavor that's not overpowering. I consider it a "treat" because it's pricier than me making use of my leftover coffee, cocoa and milk. Although nice, it's not something I'd buy regularly or keep on hand.
399836399836B002IEVJRYA5H8NA5CJ0FK4K. "daisy4given"0041338768000Yummy!This is a very good canned coffee drink - not too sweet, not too bitter, good balance of flavor. It DOES have the "normal" flavor of preservatives that all canned coffee drinks have, but overall this drink is pretty good!
399837399837B002IEVJRYA3EJ8XHVDC0CWHmrsmel2010 "mrsmel2010"0041338768000Would buy again...I enjoyed illy issimo coffee drink Cappucino flavor. It isn't as icky sweet as some of the Starbuck frappucino's and such, so for me that's a plus. It has a nice coffee flavor...not too bitter and just a small amount of sweetness. This drink isn't for those of you who aren't really coffee lovers that only tolerate really sweet coffee drinks. It tastes like coffee...just perfect for the true coffee lover. The size is just right with 81 grams of caffeine for it 8.45 ounces. This product is manufactured in Denmark for the Coca-Cola Company. They are a little over $2 a piece on Amazon. That's a little pricey for a regular habit, but it is much more competitive than a $5 drink at the coffee shops.

Overall, it was tasty, and I would recommend it.
399838399838B002IEVJRYAKJHHD5VEH7VGDominique W0031338768000Okay but no WOW factor for the taste budsI thought this drink had a well balanced flavor. I preferred it over the Caffe blend that I had previously tried. I drank it cold and it was enjoyable. No fireworks of the taste buds or immediate desire for more. But, it tasted okay.

Final impression based on my one-can taste test: Just okay. I may or may not buy one if I was in the mood for a cold coffee drink at a convenience or drug store.
399839399839B002IEVJRYA1ODOGXEYECQQ8Nuknuk0041338768000Great tasting cappucino in a convenience canThis is cappuccino in an 8.45 oz can, just a bit more than a regular 12 oz soda can. You won't get the, "You got milk mustache" or some cute latte art, but you can really taste a nice combination of strong coffee flavor and milk - tastes great. 100 calories.

The milk comes from rBST free cows (I first had to Google it to know what it means), meaning no injection with artificial hormones to increase production of milk. RBST is already banned in Canada, Japan, New Zealand, etc., but not in the US yet.

Not better than the hot cappuccino served with the traditional atmosphere, but if you need to run, you can just grab one and throw it in you bag.

Product of Denmark.
399840399840B002IEVJRYAPP35M28G2U51M. Lafferman0041338681600A Once In Awhile Coffee BeverageI enjoyed this Cappuccino Italian Expresso Style Coffee Drink, with Lowfat Milk and Cocoa.

Each serving is 8.45 Fl Oz, is 100 Calories per can, 1.5 grams of Total Fat, 60 mg Sodium, which is 3 %,Total Carbs is 19 grams, which is 6%,Sugars are 18 grams,Protein is 4 grams,Calcium is 10%. The caffeine level is 81 mg.

I enjoyed this coffee beverage, tho I do wish it had more of chocolate taste to it, like a mocha coffee.

For me, this would have to be a once in awhile treat, because of the carbohydrate and sugar levels are higher than what I try to keep my levels at.

Otherwise this was a very enjoyable coffee beverage to drink.
