Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea

Intelligentsia crafts the most perfect cup of coffee in Chicago.  Whenever I have a deadline or an upcoming exam, I can't mess around when it comes to coffee or else sh*t will hit the fan.  The baristas here have drip coffee down to a science.   They prepare freshly ground coffee beans and ever so slowly pour steaming hot water over the grounds.  One cup of coffee is a bit pricey, but when you're under a lot of stress and time is limited, Intelligentsia is well worth the price.

All the baristas wear ties or bow ties and look like the ultimate hipsters.  I love it.
Drip coffee science.
No machines here.  A well-dressed barista slowly pours piping hot water into the filter.
Drip, drip drip.
The perfect cup of coffee.

The perfect vanilla latte.

They also have sweets!

Macarons!  A perfect addition to your coffee.

Happy drinking.
