Intelligentsia Coffee’s Watertown Coffeebar has quickly become a local staple over the past few years. Beyond delicious coffee, they also serve up an incredible story. This small national chain was started by two coffee lovers who wanted to bring better coffee to the city of Chicago after a move from San Francisco. Their passion led to them helping pioneer the fair-trade coffee world through globally, ethically sourced coffee beans. Now, they serve those carefully selected beans in their shops in five states across the country, continually innovating with new additions often.
What people love about Intelligentsia’s coffee is the smooth, rich flavors that are unparalleled by many other coffee shops. It’s not rushed, it’s perfectly brewed every single time. For a true taste of the beans try a single-origin espresso or a drip coffee. They also have specialty beverages like macchiatos, lattes, all the staples you know and love. One thing patrons mention is it is a little pricey, but so worth the splurge, so go on a day that you feel like treating yourself!
