Revolution. Boston and its neighboring Lexington, Concord, Cambridge, Somerville, Belmont and Watertown have long been catalysts for change. These towns are legendary in our country's fight for freedom on its home soil and in cultivating the fertile ground where some of the brightest minds continue to emerge. Coffee is and always has been the fuel of bold thinking, whether it be to establish a new nation or to foster innovation.
Intelligentsia's decision to enter into the foray here is guided by our desire to be part of an enlightened culinary community located in one of the most invigorating cultural scenes in America. It’s in this independent spirit that our company was founded, and it’s in the radical energy found here that keeps us going.
Watertown is steeped in its own revolutionary history – too vast to encapsulate – but including the first case of taxation without representation in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and, a few hundred years later, the band Boston recording the majority of its eponymous album often considered one of the greatest rock 'n roll records of all time at Foxglove Studios. We love the storied spot we've found on Mount Auburn Street for our first coffeebar and training facility at the intersection of beauty, history and culture, where Watertown bumps into Cambridge and Belmont.
So, strike a match, light a fire in your head and heart, and join us for a cup of life-changing coffee in a revolutionary place where there is only more to come. Intelligentsia. Illuminating Coffee.
