Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||Chicago, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Review Date:||April 2004|
Balanced and roundly high-toned. Slightly roasty, gently acidy. Papaya and fresh leather notes in the aroma; papaya and dark chocolate in the cup. A tickle of astringency in the long finish.
Served at Charlie Trotter's in Chicago. The chef's innovative new American cuisine and Zagat-Survey-topping service have made his restaurant justifiably famous. Intelligentsia is a leading, award-winning Chicago-area roaster with a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of printing roast dates on coffee packaging.
