And there’s more:

•with “report bar” you can add your discoveries to the illy data base or, if you are a bar manager, you can recommend your own café.
What are you waiting for? There’s not much time left before your next cup of coffee.
What's New in Version 3.1
The search results display each bar that has received ratings of at least two coffee beans and two cups from Gambero Rosso, along with text reviews of each bar.
The icons indicate the quality of the coffee and the overall evaluation of the bar, along with membership in the National Association of Historic Places in Italy, and eventually, the winner of the "illy Bar of the Year."
Illy marketing should be ashamed
Tough to use and even looks like it misses Illy BRANDED coffee bars.
The person below who reviewed it highly must have been the employee managing this project...
My recommendation is fix this app or remove it. Actually hurts the brand's image to have it out which is a pity. Sometimes not being in web media is better than doing it poorly.
I guess there hasn't been any support for this app since it was created? It still lists grocery stores that have been closed for years.
In NYC 99% of the bars and retailers are missing. You can't add only retailers to the list. Useless.
