This socially responsible, Direct Trade coffee company brings beans—in terms of quality and commitment—to a new level. By cutting out middlemen and traveling to countries where its beans originate, Chicago-based Intelligentsia Coffee buys directly from farmers, all of whom are well compensated for producing high quality coffee beans.

We carry both the retail size House Blend Coffee and their Black Cat Classic Espresso. Check out their super nerdy video on making espresso:
