In anticipation of the opening of our newest store in New York City's Herald Square, we chatted over coffee–-and about coffee–-with some of the people bringing the store to life. One of the permanent fixtures in the new shop is Intelligentsia Coffee, sourcing, developing, roasting and delivering the best coffee in the world. Founded in Chicago in 1995, the company works diligently alongside their growers to produce coffees that are unlike any others and exclusive to Intelligentsia. After a successful NYC coffee bar launch in 2013, Intelligentsia will open its second NYC location in Herald Square on June 7, 2014. While we anxiously await Intelligentsia's new coffee bar at Herald Square, we visited its first NYC location at The High Line Hotel.
