This past weekend we held our annual In-House Barista Competition at our Chicago Roasting Works. Seven of the best Baristas from all three of our Chicago locations as well as two of our Traning Specialists participated. It was a great showing, and in the end, Mike Phillips who represents both the Millennium Park and Broadway stores came out victorious. Congratulations to Mike and to all of the competitors.

To celebrate, enjoy some of our new offerings. We have Los Delirios, Organic Nicaragua and Los Inmortales, El Salvador on sale, Flor Azul has just arrived and is SMOKIN' hot. Celebration Blend has marked the official arrival of the Holidays here at Intelligentsia and our Rwandan Auction Lots are so close to knocking everyone's socks off. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those gems.

Los Delirios, Organic Nicaragua

Delightfully creamy, this coffee creates a smooth and attentive cup. Caramel and wild honey provide sweetness while dark chocolate, baking spice and a tinge of fresh cranberries compliment the finish. Well-balanced with a buttery mouthfeel.
Now $13.95 / pound.

Los Inmortales, El Salvador

Delightful! The aroma of black grapes and chocolate sustain through the entire drinking experience. This medium-bodied coffee has a velvety mouthfeel and juicy sweetness typified in the date-like, dark grape flavor notes. Don’t be surprised if floral and Anjou pear nuances reveal themselves in the cup.
Now $12.95 / pound.
