Intelligentsia single origin coffees are sourced from some of the most celebrated, family-owned farms and smallholder co-ops and estates from around the world. In an effort to underscore the specific flavor notes of a single growing region, process, or varietal, we seek out these distinct coffees to showcase the purest expression of unique taste and unrivaled quality.
Black Cat Project Espresso
From careful cultivation to refined preparation techniques, the Black Cat Project™ drives continuous innovation to espresso in all its forms. A direct result of intensive lot sourcing and close collaboration with our farmers or producers, our single origin and seasonal coffees produce espressos that continuously push the boundaries of flavor.
Intelligentsia blends showcase the cross-section of our favorite seasonal coffees. To highlight the nuanced flavors we cherish, each blend offers a distinctive flavor profile. Our blends are carefully tested cup after cup for adherence to our uncompromising standards. Discover blends that are the truest expression of the coffee roaster’s craft.
At Intelligentsia, we take decaf seriously. To maintain the unique flavor profile of each batch, our caffeine-free coffees are decaffeinated through a chemical-free, mountain water process. Enjoy delicious, non-caffeinated coffee, without compromising on flavor.
We brew coffees at their peak sweetness, disrupting the all too common notion that coffees from any origin stay fresh year-round. Intelligentsia In Season™ means that our coffees are offered only while they still retain the vibrancy nature and the producer intended. As a result, our In Season coffees possess the same compelling traits they held when they first arrived at our roasting works. It’s how Intelligentsia brings seasonality to the coffee industry.
Intelligentsia is the first to adopt Direct Trade practices in the industry. We understand that what happens on the farm directly affects the quality of our coffees, which is why we’ve spent the last 15 years and counting cultivating relationships with growers who share our exact standards in quality. We don’t just buy exceptional coffee from award-winning growers around the world. We accompany our coffees every step of the way, from the nurseries where the seeds are planted to the coffeebars where they are brewed with precision. Direct Trade benefits everyone involved, including you.
