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.
