America's Best Coffee Bars

Slide 15 of 28

Intelligentsia; Los Angeles, CA

Intelligentsia’s roots are in Chicago, but the Silver Lake outpost benefits from a sunny outdoor patio (and the occasional celebrity customer). Meticulously sourced single-origins, like the micro-lot from Santuario, Colombia (with subtle notes of raspberry and black currant), and the trademark Black Cat espresso are executed flawlessly. Expect to wait a few extra minutes as discerning baristas measure the temperature and volume of water used for each cup to consistently highlight the flavors in every roast.
