Spring brings with it themes of renewal
and inspiration, which can be unearthed
in the paradises where co;ee is grown.
JW Marriott and illy channel this idea
through the lens of Sebastião Salgado’s new
book, The Scent of a Dream, a photographic
journey through co;ee-growing countries.
April also marks the 25th anniversary of the
Ernesto Illy Award for best quality co;ee
grower in Brazil. It’s no coincidence that illy’s
MonoArabica Brazil beans are a favorite of
Master Barista Giorgio Milos for making his
cold brew recipe highlighting dark chocolate
taste notes. For more, visit illy.com.
