INTELLIGENTSIA - FREE SHIPPING on all US orders over $40

The Extraordinary Coffee Workshop convenes Intelligentsia Direct Trade partners from all over the world for an in-depth exploration of what makes coffee extraordinary. The event travels to a different country every year so we can learn from coffee quality innovations in each of the countries that host ECW. Since 2017, ECW has also been the site of the Extraordinary Coffee Competition, a global coffee quality contest featuring the most decorated coffee growers in the world.
