Lee "God has died lots of times, but someo...0031334880000Not impressedMaybe I'm a purist of some sort, but really, cappuccino should be hot and in a proper cup, made fresh. I tried to give this the benefit of the doubt, to accept that Illy wants to offer capp in a can, but it just doesn't fly for me. It isn't bad, per se, it's just not very interesting. There was also the slightest hint of metal to the taste, a further turnoff. I'll stick to fresh made.
399953399953B002IEVJRYA12PN254PTSGU5Contrary2 "Mary"0051334793600Absolutely deliciousThe flavor is outstanding to the point that we shared a can and was quite disappointed that it wasn't larger. The coffee flavor was just right and would definitely get it again!
399954399954B002IEVJRYA3BTL4FV6ODKATfredtownward "The Analytical Mind; Have Brain...0041334793600OKAt about two bucks a can for a pack of 12 (one and two thirds if you subscribe to purchase at least one pack of 12 per month), this is a product you would be wise to try first by picking up cans from local stores, especially since there are so many different varieties available:

illy issimo Caffe Coffee Drink, 6.8-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)
illy issimo Caffe Coffee Drink, No Sugar, 6.8-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)
illy issimo Latte Macchiato Coffee Drink, 8.45-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)
illy issimo Mochaccino, 8.45-Ounces Cans (Pack of 12)

Some of these are also available in packs of 4 at a higher cost per can without free shipping or a subscription option if you cannot find any to try in your local stores:

illy issimo Cappuccino Coffee Drink, 8.45-Ounce Cans (Pack of 4)
illy issimo Caffe Coffee Drink, 6.8-Ounce Cans (Pack of 4)
illy issimo Latte Macchiato Coffee Drink, 8.45-Ounce Cans (Pack of 4)

My reaction? While it is somewhat difficult to judge based upon drinking a single can, I enjoyed it,...

just not enough to start ordering it by the case.
399955399955B002IEVJRYAF2FTSRJB3I5SJ. Baker "texasyaya"0051334793600Great taste and low calI loved this little drink. I will buy it again. Good for car trips. It is not as milky tasting as the Starbucks brand. And the portion is a nicer (smaller) size.
399956399956B002IEVJRYA3VS2RYRGDW4HSShannan0031334793600Tastes good, but nothing spectacularily issimo Cappucino Coffee Drink was good, but the can size was a bit small. It is hardly more than 1 cup and at nearly $2 each, I'm not sure it is worth it. A bottled coffee drink by a national brand is nearly the same cost per ounce, but comes in a bottle and contains an ounce more. I also expected a more robust flavor. The flavor is very similar to that which you would get from a high quality drip coffee that you could make at home. Just add cocoa and chill and the flavor would be about the same.

The good thing about the can size is that it fits very easily into a purse or backpack, the can is recyclable and there is no worry about breakage like with a bottled coffee.
399957399957B002IEVJRYAVIZDOKC43P96Michael Strom0041334793600Good Refreshing Pick-Me-UpsI might as well review both Illy issimo Caffe Coffee Drink & Illy issimo Cappuccino Coffee Drink at the same time, since essentially the only difference is the additional lowfat milk and cocoa in the cappuccino. I am not a daily addict of high end espresso drinks, but I do have both espresso & cappuccino now and then - often Starbucks, but not exclusively. These Illy issimo coffee drinks have a distinctly nutty flavor - more distinctly so IMHO than the comparable Starbucks beverages. No real bitter edge, so for those who need that, this may not work out for you. Since this is so entirely a matter of taste and budget, I'll say I really like the taste but continue to roll my eyes at the prices - comparable to the Starbucks canned products you see at the grocery stores. For a quick pick-me-up treat, I'm all in, and I'd prefer this over the Starbucks stuff.
399958399958B002IEVJRYA28RHTOOW04O6MElla "Ella K"0051334793600Little pick-me-up for afternoonsI'm not a typical bottled coffee drinker. I prefer mine the old fashioned way - hot and freshly brewed. So, when I poured this over ice and drank it, I was quite surprised by how good it was. The taste was smooth, not too strong and not too mild. I liked the amount of sweetness and milk in the drink as well.
I still prefer my coffee hot, but I think once in a while I could see myself buying it as a pick-me-up in the afternoon during summer.
399959399959B002IEVJRYA1CFU5XJXN3PV4Home Studio0041334793600Exactly As Expected - And That's a GOOD Thing!For folks who need a good coffee fix on the go, this is hard to beat. The Cappuccino flavor is rich without being cloying, and the taste is strong without any harshness. I may just keep a 12 pack in my fridge as a handy "emergency coffee" supply for those days when everything is moving too fast for me to nurse my coffee at home.
399960399960B002IEVJRYAPDPA11IZPYLNSheila Chilcote-Collins "Sheila Renee Chilcot...0041334793600illy Brand's New "issimo" Coffee Drink - Cappuccino In A CanI have tried different illy brand products and have always enjoyed their products. The new illy brand "issimo" which translates loosely to "extremely" or "remarkably" pretty much lives up to it's moniker. At 8.45 oz. and 100 calories, it is a nice pick me up in the AM. I only enjoy cold coffee products in the summertime when it's hot so I wouldn't be a year round drinker of issimo but I liked the flavor and especially the sweetness of the product. It isn't sugary sweet, thick and doesn't have an overly "dairy" quality to it which I found nice. Issimo is a light product that doesn't leave you feeling bloated or heavy. At just under $2.00 a can, it's not the cheapest coffee beverage out there but it's certainly more cost effective than your local, upscale coffee shop.
399931399931B002IEVJRYA1F5O1USOUOOXIJohn K.0041336089600Great coffee flavor, decent kickThe Illy Issimo cappuccino coffee drink is a very convenient way to enjoy a cold cappuccino. The 81 milligrams of coffee are about what a Red Bull can would give you, but it tastes like a coffee, not an energy drink. The flavor is excellent, you can taste the coffee and the cream; and it goes down very smoothly. I would definitely have another.
399932399932B002IEVJRYA2WZRBFLJESCSHBrian Lange0041336089600Nice Alternative.I'm not an avid coffee drinker, but do have the occasional Monster/Rockstar/Starbucks energy coffee type drink. Pretty rarely, since those tend to screw with my stomach. I assumed this would be the same sort of thing but I guess the first thing I noticed it is a much milder and smoother version of the aforementioned. I drank it without feeling that "energy drink jolt" and now tend to think of this as more of an actual coffee drink as opposed to the deceiving "energy drink" type of can.

I suppose I'd most compare it to the Starbucks Frappucino bottles you can purchase in drink aisles, but with more of a coffee flavor. It's quite nice. Personally, not the type of thing that I would buy on any sort of regular basis since I don't really drink coffee, but I do think it is a nice drink. Definitely worth a try for the iced coffee crowd.
399933399933B002IEVJRYA3EFSLEMHNPP6ASenor Zoidbergo0041336089600Good tasting coffee on the goI've seen illy marketed in coffee shops before, but never had a chance to try it. Didn't know they made on-the-go coffee drinks either. The taste is very good and not overly sweet. Felt the coffee taste could be slightly stronger for a cappuccino however.

The tall slender can is distinctive, but slightly impractical. The opening was too small, and I was only able to drink in tiny slurps. Minus one star for reduced utility.
399934399934B002IEVJRYA2YW1MG1GKU8XDA. Stein0041336003200Good low cal cappuccinoI really like iced lattes and cappuccinos and when I saw only 100 calories per can I was looking forward to trying it. The flavor does not taste artificial (like other low cal coffees) It has real sugar instead of corn syrup and low fat milk. It is a bit too sweet for my taste but I normally don't like a lot of sugar in my coffee or blends so it might be ok for others.

At first, I thought it didn't have enough coffee flavor or that it didn't have enough caffeine for my usual morning coffee but that changed right away. It didn't make me nervous, I just felt more awake! I think I'll try other flavors of the illy issimo brand to see if I like other blends better.
399935399935B002IEVJRYA39D7ONPOORMUTWilliam E. Liberatore0051336003200Not bad!The first drink made me a little bit nervous... it's pretty strong! Though I guess that cappucinos generally are. It seemed to mellow out a bit after the first drink and was really quite enjoyable. I am a regular coffee drinker and this didn't wire me or keep me up all night so it must not be much stronger than a normal cup of coffee. (I'm not sure about the relative caffeine contents it may even be less.) Overall, very enjoyable. If you try it I hope you like it as well and thanks for taking the time to read my review.
399936399936B002IEVJRYA2XNOB1T796Y6BChibiNeko "Sooo many books, so little time!"0031336003200It's OK, but nothing amazingI love cappucinos, so I thought this would be a relatively easy item to review since I'm already pre-disposed to like anything that contains expresso. After drinking this, I can honestly say that I'm underwhelmed.

Taste-wise, this isn't bad but it isn't great either. It's pretty much your run of the mill canned expresso beverage and while I've had worse, there wasn't that much to make it stand out. As others have said, the cocoa flavor just isn't there. That wouldn't actually be something I'd speak out against, except that the drink does claim that it's in there and there will be people who will be expecting to actually taste cocoa. It's not here, or if it is then it's so faint that you wouldn't be able to taste it unless you're really, really looking for it.

Now the good thing about this is that it isn't overly sweet. I do like sweet coffee/expresso beverages, but a lot of times the bottled or canned beverages will be just overly saturated with it. This drink isn't, which was actually a nice change of pace and something that I know some of you will appreciate. Another thing that some might like is that it's only 100 calories for the full can, which was nice. It's still 19 carbs, but it's good to have a low calorie option for those of us that are trying to avoid the coffee drinks that have a bajillion calories.

Overall, this just didn't stand out that much to me. It's good enough that I'd probably buy it if I was at the store, wanted a cold coffee/expresso drink, but didn't want anything sweet. I just don't know if I'd go out of my way to buy it and stock it up for those times when I really crave stuff like this.
399937399937B002IEVJRYA1FPQ54AIB26L0Mike Wallace0051335916800Yummy with a kickA chilled can of illy isimo in the morning can give you a delicious little wake up kick. I had the cappuccino flavor which is espresso with a little milk and cocoa. After reading the ingredients on the can, I was expecting more of a chocolate flavor similar to a mocha, but a cappuccino has more of a coffee flavor with just a hint of chocolate.

After the first couple of sips it tasted even more delicious. In fact, I probably could of drank a couple more, but then I would be extremely wired and probably regretting the decision. With one can you get a delicious caffeine wake-up that is only 100 calories. The taste may make you want more, but the caffeine in one can should be enough to get most people awake and starting the day, without any negative effects.
399938399938B002IEVJRYA28YK7B27X3N0Nbas bleu0051335830400Best Chocolate Coffee Drink I have had out of a can or bottle!I must admit I was not expecting much from this product. Monster Mocha Java is my favorite non barista made coffee product, but it lacks some in that great coffee house flavor due to all the great energy stuff they put in there, I love the energy the Monster Java provides so that is why it has been my favorite canned coffee product for the past 4 years.
Then there are Starbucks fraps, that just taste like some kind of gooey chemical is trying to take the place of cream or half and half or even the thickness added by ice chips, and the Starbucks leaves a not nice after taste in my mouth.
This "illy issimo" product is not anywhere close to a really good iced cappuccino made with yummy calories and whip cream and all the goodies by your favorite barista: but, it does taste as good as the ones I make at home. I have a commericial espresso maker ( from once upon a dream when I had planned on starting my own coffee shop-- life is what happens while you are making other plans.)

Slightly creamy, with no chemical taste, none whatsoever.
Nice chocolate taste without overpowering the coffee taste.
Not overly sweet, I tend to like my coffees less sweet than most people, so if you like your coffees sweeter,you may might like this.
I like the taste of the coffee it is just the right strength for me and with no chalky type taste.
I will buy this product when I do not have time or need the convience of having this great drink on hand for friends.
I will continue to make my own because of cost. But it is great to know there is a product out there that tastes as good as my own..... and no preservatives.
399939399939B002IEVJRYA36K2N527TXXJNDr. Bojan Tunguz0041335830400Lighter Alternative to FrappuccinoI am a big fan of Starbucks Frappuccino, but I don't get to drink it too often since it's a bit on a heavy side for a casual coffee-based drink IMHO. illy issimo cappuccino is a much lighter alternative to Farappuccino: it has half the calories (100 vs. 200) and fat (1.5 g vs. 3 g), albeit in a slightly smaller serving size. The lightness, of course, comes at a price and illy issimo cappuccino tastes as light as you would have expected it. It is made of medium-brew coffee, which is not that bad, but I prefer more full flavored varieties. This is a fairly tasty coffee-based energy drink, but it's not as impressive as illy issimo's espresso drinks. Nonetheless, I've enjoyed drinking it and would recommend it to most coffee lovers in a search of a convenient and tasty energy drink.
399940399940B002IEVJRYA325JING4PW8FECaitlin Martin "addicted to words"0041335744000Great pick me up!This is a great-tasting pick-me-up. I'm up early in the morning to get to work and don't always have the chance to have my cup of coffee. Having this in the fridge was a nice eye-opener on a gray and rainy morning when I was having trouble getting my eyes open. Nice coffee taste, but a bit too sweet for my taste.
399941399941B002IEVJRYA3EZEP0FX5BC1PA Conrad "Ask Conrad"0021335744000Overwhelmingly underwhelming. I've had better.I've had brewed illy coffee before, and liked it. I tried this illy issimo Cappuccino Coffee Drink. It's ok. It is not overly sweet like other canned coffee drinks, but I also did not find this coffee drink to be flavorful or memorable. In fact, I had to stir the inside with a straw just to see if everything settled at the bottom (it didn't). Maybe I got a bum sample, or maybe my experience is typical. I cannot say that I don't like it, but I also cannot see myself ordering it online or picking up a pack at the market. I may drink it if it was given to me. Or maybe I won't drink it. Did it give me a caffein boost? To be honest, I don't know. But I had to order a cappuccino afterward to get an effective caffeine dose.

This drink is comparable to the Starbucks Doubleshot Energy + Coffee Drink at 100 calories (vs 110 for Starbucks).

I may need to try out more, to give it a fair review. However, based on my sample I would say this coffee drink is just meh. Would I recommend it? I don't know. I haven't felt so blah about a product review before. I will give it between a strong two-star and a weak three-star rating.
399942399942B002IEVJRYA2S7CRFCDO57CRTori [Book Faery]0031335398400It's OKThe cappuccino coffee was okay, considering there wasn't a lot of sugars in it and it was in a can; however, I think there are plenty of drinks out there that are way better.

Taste: like a watered down cappuccino.

Convenience: the best part; I don't have to worry about a glass bottle shattering, nor do I need to worry about a hot coffee cup. You're not supposed to shake it, which can be a pain, and once you open it, all bets are off.

Caffeine: it took the entire can for me to feel any sort of kick, and even then, it wasn't that strong for me. I'm pretty sensitive to caffeine too.

I would not buy these, either for the taste, or for the real purpose: to wake me up. If I really need a good pick me up, I would probably just go and buy a real cappuccino from a coffee shop. Or maybe one of those Starbucks fraps in the glass bottles.
399943399943B002IEVJRYA2561PYW9TTMYDLori Calabrese "0041335312000A nice coffee treat for only 100 calories!
399944399944B002IEVJRYA21GKY23ELHY95jennie420051335312000Perfect balance of coffee and caloriesI'm so glad to be able to order the Illy Issimo Cappuccino drinks by the case on Amazon, since my local stores are often sold out. At 100 calories, this drink has about half the calories of a Starbucks bottled frappuccino. It has a great coffee flavor with just a hint of chocolate and is sweet, but not overly. It definitely tastes more like a coffee drink than chocolate milk; which is a problem with some of the competitors. This is my go-to coffee drink for summer mornings and fans of Illy coffee would probably enjoy this variation on their favorite blend.
399945399945B002IEVJRYA1XEZIHQIUAOR1Monika Matthews0041335139200Alternative to StarbucksI liked this better than the Starbucks similar product. It didn't taste too sugary, which is usually my problem with these drinks. If this is your thing, I suggest giving Illy Issimo a try.
399946399946B002IEVJRYA1H5WDTJS8XETVG. Dowling0051335139200This is a real Winner!What a tasty drink, and just about the right size (8.5 oz.). There really is no need for more words of description -- but here goes, anyway. I've known the delightful taste of cappuccino for many years and have drunk it in many parts of the world. Probably I've tasted better in Italy -- but I doubt it.

One thing special about this can of ILLY cappuccino is it's served cold, not hot. This means it's possible to taste cappuccinno in those summer months when hot drinks are not refreshing, but only a means for sweat on the brow.

One Caution: DO NOT SHAKE the can before opening. I ignored this caution clearly written on the can and created a minor explosion. No damage, though. I was very happy to have the opportunity of sampling this very tasty drink. I suggest you try it too (and hope the "distillers" will ship me a case (gratis).
399947399947B002IEVJRYA2FLJCJ3SW0TUYBrie "Brie"0051335052800Love this cappuccinoGreat taste; I love this can-form cappuccino. Great for when you are on the go and don't want to make your own cappuccino. Bit on the expensive side compared to making your own, but it's around the same place as getting it from the illy coffeehop anyways.
399948399948B002IEVJRYA2FL580YGSPRV3sec6820021334966400Didn't taste rightI really thought I was going to like this, I mean the starbucks version, and seattle best coffee versions are both good so this should have been too. Unfortunately, this one tasted wrong. I can't really explain what was off about it though. It wasn't specifically a metallic taste, but it also wasn't specifically an artificial ingredient taste. The flavor was somewhere in the middle of those two flavors. It wasn't disgusting, but I definitely wouldn't purchase this again. I'll stick with one of the other brands instead.
399949399949B002IEVJRYA1H88L8X6HM1BQCJ-MO0041334966400Flavorful canned Cappuccino - only 100 caloriesI am an infrequent coffee drinker, but I do occasionally like a sweetened iced coffee or a mocha-flavored cappuccino. This canned cappuccino drink caught my eye and after tasting it, I was pleased at the taste. The coffee is flavorful, but not bitter. The drink has a great blend of coffee and chocolate flavors. The ingredients list sugar, but the whole can (8.45 oz.) has only 100 calories. Of course it's not a good as a fresh mocha cappuccino, but for a canned drink, it tastes great and is a good way to start the morning.
399950399950B002IEVJRYA1CHOKV10NEI8XE. M. Van Court "Van"0041334880000Very good for a canned coffee productIlly issimo Cappuccino was very good for a canned coffee product. It tasted like a cold cappuccino. What is did not taste like (which many canned coffees do) is tin or a metallic flavor. It had the slightly caramelized flavor that I notice under a really good cappuccino.

I would select this canned cappuccino over others.

399951399951B002IEVJRYA261P36T13YP98Victor Blake0051334880000Before Starbucks there was illyI enjoy the Starbucks canned and bottled drinks. But before Starbucks made those (and possibly before Starbucks itself was around), illy has had packaged drinks for a number of years. For an excellent iced coffee beverage on the go, this is the best taste. It's not flavored, just plain espresso and milk. Although prices vary I have found that these (12 packs) are always available at a lower cost than the comparable Starbucks products. I will say that the Starbucks cappuccino is more milk and sweeter, but that the illy product is closer to what I would make at home or what you would find at a coffee shop if you ordered an iced cappuccino.
