Good Question: How's the Illy Espresso Delivery Program?

Here's a good question from Mary on coffee home delivery. She asks:

Since it's coffee week, I thought I'd ask about the Illy coffee home delivery program. I've tasted Illy espresso in restaurants and like it very much. Program details from the Illy website... "Your obligation is to fulfill your commitment to pay $150 for the introductory kit (the kit is a FrancisFrancis X5 espresso machine plus a set of espresso cups) within 3 months, and to purchase a minimum of 4 cans of illy per month for 12 months (or the equivalent amount of coffee within 12 months)."

I would drink 2-3 shots of espresso a day so I'm pretty sure I would use up most of the espresso that I would be required to purchase every month. I was wondering if anyone has tried the home delivery program and had a good or bad experience with it. Thanks!

Mary, we've not tried the Illy home delivery, but we do know that regular home delivery of coffee is becoming more popular. Ugly Mug, featured in our current giveaway, has a personal delivery program too.

Here's the whole scoop on Illy's Espresso Membership.

Anyone else have advice or feedback for Mary?
