Our Approach



One of the things we love about coffee is its accessibility. Its ubiquitous presence in our daily routines has become part of our DNA. But there should be nothing commonplace about a cup of coffee.

Our Direct Trade buying model means a personal, ongoing collaboration with growers on four continents to source coffees unmatched for sweetness, nuance, and clarity.

Likewise, at the wholesale level, Intelligentsia’s world class trainers and robust customer support and technical departments work closely with cafes, restaurants, and hotels to raise their coffee and tea programs from the commonplace to the sublime.
