Intelligentsia Coffee Is Opening Its First NYC Shop in Chelsea

This is happening.

Here's some great end-of-day coffee news: The Chicago-based cult coffee roaster Intelligentsia will open its first New York retail shop this March in an "unnamed development project" in West Chelsea, Sprudge reports. Though plenty of local coffee shops already brew Intelligentsia beans and the company maintains a "training lab" on Broadway in Soho, the company hasn't announced any big plans for the city until now. The West Chelsea shop is one of five new cafés that will open this year; other cities to be caffeinated include three shops in its hometown and its first San Francisco location.
