illy Y5 is now connected to replenish coffee stock before it runs out

illy-y5-drsWhat does the world run on? Coffee would be my answer. After all, without humans, everything else would virtually be left on its own without any innovation or advancement. However, when we humans put our minds to do something, stuff happens. And many of us are unable to get our creative juices kicking at work unless we jolt our senses with some coffee early in the morning, or perhaps after lunch to stave off that sleepy feeling. illy knows this, which is why they decided to roll out a connected version of its Y5 single-serve espresso and coffee system earlier this month.
