For anyone who travels to Chicago and considers themselves a coffee connoisseur should patron Intelligentsia. No one makes a better latte, espresso, or coffee. It makes for a great small gift back home as well with their half pound coffee, which they are happy to grind if you prefer.

This is the best coffee you will ever taste. I wish they had stores through USA. It takes a little of waiting but it is worth the wait.

The level of skill and dedication of the baristas is pretty great. There are some coffees that I feel I never really tasted before tasting it here. The cappuccinos are amazing creations-thick caramel like notes along with more savory tastes that last on the tongue. A real pleasure.

I have been to every location Intelligentsia has in Chicago. All are dedicated to making outstanding coffee and they due so on a consistent basis .This location does seem to have a bit of an attitude. My girlfriend was not acknowledged in line but I on the other hand was treated very well.

The coffee at Intelligentsia is possibly the best in the country. However, the arrogance and aloofness of many baristas and cashiers often deflates what could be a much better experience.

You're better off buying the coffee from their website and skipping the long lines and thankless attitude that permeates this location.
