It’s Fall, and you know what that means: hot cocoa, pumpkin spice everything, apple cider, and most importantly, hot coffee! This mood is just in time, too, as it’s the 25th anniversary of Intelligentsia Coffee! It’s a notable anniversary for third wave coffee as a whole, as the Chicago-based Intelligentsia is the first of the “big four” specialty coffee pioneers to reach a quarter century, and definitely a marking moment for Los Angeles’ coffee scene with their Silver Lake location back in 2007.
On their actual anniversary — Friday, October 9th — they will sell a $25 coffee and mug bundle online and at their Silver Lake and Pasadena coffeebar locations. While only available on that day, both the mug and coffee bag will feature a limited-edition design that showcases old iterations of the Intelligentsia logo and hand drawn sketches from old Intelligentsia advertisements. Limited amounts are available, so get them while you can! Finally, Intelligentsia will also be giving away a free year of coffee; and, customers can enter to win at any Intelligentsia coffeebar on Oct. 9th! What a way to celebrate the cooler weather and holiday vibes!
