|This Cape Town airport installment of the global Espressamente chain from Illy sits between Gates A3 & A4. Alternatively called Illy Café here, it is decorated in Espressamente modern red and silver. There are red and silver stools at tall tables and an Illy-branded parasol over several café tables. Using a two-group Carimali at the bar, they pull shots of espresso with a thinner medium brown crema with a distinctive microbubble froth. The body is slightly thin but it has a smooth, light flavor of mild spice - and none of the heavy wood you taste in Illy-branded cafés in the U.S. Served in Illy designer IPA cups for a mere R8.50. But it's relative weakness again suggests that Espressamente, and Illy, fades fast in quality outside of Europe.
