Intelligentsia Coffee  Sourcing, developing, roasting and brewing the sweetest coffees in the world.

Today's the day! The producers from Brazil @carmocoffees come from generations of Coffee Farmers, and are visiting Logan today at 2PM. Don't miss this chance to chat with them over the very beans they created, Agua Preta Brazil. Event page link in bio.

Our illumination stripes made their way to a hat, what do you think?

It's back...Flecha Roja Costa Rica!
For over a dozen years now, the coffee in our annual Flecha Roja offering has come from the Coopedota cooperative. The first lot featured as Flecha Roja this season is a mixture of Caturra, Red and Yellow Catuai, and was carefully harvested by Ureña Murillo Pablo and Jiménez Monge Mauricio in Dota County, Tarrazu. Dried for 16 days on raised beds, it presents itself as refreshing, intricate and fruit-forward in the cup with notes of Honeycrisp apple, Rainier cherry and nectarine.
You can find this menu staple online, or in our Coffeebars, enjoy ☕️

Sometimes all you need is a smile & a coffee to get through your Monday.

It's that time of the week again, Friday Roaster's Special!
This week Sam Sabori chose Karyenda Burundi, "From the attentive Yandaro wet mill that separates its coffee into five quality tiers to the blacklight inspections just before bagging at the Budeca mill, the coffee in Karyenda project is demonstrative of what innovative coffee processing from Burundi is all about. In the cup, you will find notes of tangerine, dried cherry, and tamarind."
Visit any Intelligentsia Coffeebar for $3 off a bag.

This is it - US Coffee Championships has arrived!
We are beyond proud of our Champs, and the work of many others that produced the amazing coffees that will be showcased in only a few hours.

The Adinew Family & METAD - Tikur Anbessa Ethiopia
The Pintado Family - Rayos del Sol Peru
Championship preparation is a team effort. Our Sourcing crew worked directly with producers to create exceptionally sweet coffees that our Roasters carefully prepared. QC Lab & Roasting Works crews helped sort perfect samples bean-by-bean. Our Coffeebar crews sacrificed the help of their beloved Champs as Educators spent countless hours reviewing their routines... the list goes on. Regardless of outcome, we're proud of everyone who contributed to another very well prepared year at competition.

Ever wonder what happens to all this burlap?
Worms eat it.
We have partnered with Nature’s Little Recyclers for over four years by donating our used burlap, chaff & coffee which is fed to worm bins in urban farms - fueling their zero waste initiative. They have composted 100 tons of burlap which has supported soil & compost for Otis Fresh Farm (2616 S. Calumet) and Mother Carr Farms in Lynnwood, IL.
You can support NLR as well by visiting our Facebook Events Page to volunteer at Otis Fresh Farm (11AM-3PM) or celebrate our planet at Victory Gardens (6:30PM) this Saturday 4/22.
