In October of 1995 Doug Zell and Emily Mange left San Francisco to open an in-store coffee roaster-retailer on Broadway Avenue on the north side of Chicago. Since then a lot has changed and they’ve brought their great concept to the West Coast with locations in Venice, Pasadena, and Silverlake. When you purchase Intelligentsia coffee, you are investing in quality resulting from careful work and a real commitment to taking the right path, not the easy one. We recognize the farm as the source of the quality and we work tirelessly to make sure that quality is preserved as it travels by sea and land to our roasters. Once in our hands, we are experimenting, researching, and tasting to make sure we’re yielding the full potential of a coffee. We roast our coffees to reveal a profile that is the sweetest, cleanest and most loyal to the integrity of the coffee farm itself. We work hard to never compromise quality and we are constantly striving to do better.

Seaworth Coffee is inspired by a common love of the sea and a somewhat uncommon love of handcrafted cold-brewed coffee. Though gaining popularity on the East Coast and the Pacific North West, they couldn't find decent cold-brew in Southern California. So they set out on a mission: to create a delicious, top-quality cold brew coffee that would reflect the beautiful sunshine and good-spirit of the Golden State. So through a relentless process of experimenting with different beans, roasting methods and brewing methods, they did it. They decided to give it a name that paid tribute to our favorite pastime and the rich surf culture of California.
