Frequency Blend Whole Bean 12 Ounce Bag The Blend It's a harmonious composition of pulped-natural Brazilian coffee and fully washed Zambian coffee that changes seasonally depending on what is fresh and tasting great. Hand-picked coffee cherries from family owned and operated farms are de-pulped (the flesh of the fruit is stripped away from the seed) and dried on patios in the sun and finished in temperature-regulated gentle mechanical driers About Us! Our story begins in 1995 - a story not so different from many other entrepreneurs and dreamers. At the time, finding great tasting, fresh roasted coffee was surprisingly elusive. So, Doug Zell and Emily Mange decided to do something about it. They didn't set out to change the world, just a small corner of from San Francisco, they opened their own coffee bar and retail store in Chicago's eclectic Lakeview neighborhood. Roasting their coffee in-store, with equipment that was more antique than state-of-the-art, they honed their craft, seeking nothing less than perfection in every aspect of the experience. Little did Doug and Emily know that what started as a way to connect with people and the community in an intimate, personal way would blossom into something that would help shape an entire industry. Fast forward 21 years, and Intelligentsia still holds true to the values that have inspired us since day one. We've grown, We've evolved, but we certainly haven't changed. Through our coffee bars, Roasting Works, and training labs, we now make our home in six quintessential American cities, each possessing distinctive characteristics that resonate within the Intelligentsia brand.
