Now is the time to step up your game if you’re in the “green” or “socially conscious” retail business. Companies like Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea are raising the quality bar. There are so many opportunities for big companies to cut costs at the expense of ill compensated third world labor forces, especially when it comes to commodities like coffee and tea. So we were pleased to see that not only has Intelligentsia catered to our socially conscious consumer needs, they have surpassed the quality of nearly all retail coffee establishments in Los Angeles.
Truly providing the gourmet experience, Intelligentsia beautifully crafts each latte and cup of tea as if it were being scored for presentation. But most importantly, Inteligentsia seeks out growers and importers that are know for socially responsible practices and the compassionate treatment of people.
