Intelligentsia stops serving 20oz lattes????

| July 10, 2008

one of our favorite fellow coffee roasters intelligentsia – and we do love them, they are a tremendous inspiration – got some interesting press buzz today when they released an announcement that they had stopped serving 20oz lattes – stating that they wanted their customers to have a more authentic experience of the actual coffee that they painstakingly source from around the globe. all super cool stuff – just a bit odd given that vita – and really most other indie coffee shops have never served the starbuckian-goliath-portion better suited for mountain dew and 7-eleven.

but nonethless the “news” got broadcast around the wires today – we heard it this morning on NPR…

funny stuff. a sad day in chicago.
