House Blend Coffee // Intelligentsia // Chicago, IL
Island spice bazaars are a swirl of sensory gifts — colored sacks of powders and pods, soft silk tapestries in the breeze, and, of course, the smells, fruit and earth and sun and sugar and, above it all, the smoky wisps of deep-brewed coffee, poured pitch dark but tasting bright as green apple and citrus, sipped from thimble cups amid the market fray. Now mix it all together: Take this full-flavored blend of light, fruity Costa Rican, Guatemalan, and El Salvadoran beans, brew strong and simmer with cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon, then serve swirled with honey, and let your senses fly to Marrakech.
