This site is designed for the new visitor, beginner and experienced collector of the famous artist series of illy and amici cup collections. I want to share my experience in putting together a rather modest collection of espresso and cappuccino cups created by illycaffé S.p.A. Trieste, Italy.

I would describe the site as a unique and exclusive illy and amici cup collectors site presenting limited edition collections( naïf, facce italiane, veneXia, beach plaza and more) by renowned contemporary artists (Matteo Thun, Sandro Chia, Luca Trazzi and more).

Since there are excellent existing sites that give many details about the collection cups, the artists and the history of the cups, I will be posting my favorite links to these very valuable sites. I still refer to them on a regular basis to further my education and support my acquisition interests of illy and amici collection cups.

My hope is that this site will become a centralized reference tool for finding information about the illy and amici cup collections.
