In the US it's impossible to get fresh Illy coffee beans. Though you probably have better luck in Italy, the problem you're describing sounds exactly like the beans are not fresh.  Check the roast date...it should be within the past 15 days or so, otherwise it's hopeless.  I would guess that since Illy is local and that cafes use massibe quantities of beans they get theirs fresh from Illy. You probably get yours from a store, or in a bag/can from a cafe that sells them.  See if you can find fresh ones.  If unsure, talk to the barista and see if he/she knows.  Otherwise, you'll have to stick to something you know is fresh.
