The Intelli alums are a-spreading: Babinski & Glanville intend to strike out on their own

So, another coffee bar in LA — Possibly Echo Park — and birthed by two more (soon-to-be) Intelli alums: Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski. The lineage machine is working overtime here in LA. It smacks of the meandering flow chart that begins with Blue Bottle back in my beloved Bay Area. You can’t swing a portafilter out there without makin’ one say, “Hey! Watch what you’re doing with that thing!”.

The more the merrier I say. Although, I was hoping for another high-profile local roaster announcement — they’ll apparently be going with Intelligentsia.

Just make sure it’s transitable, you guys. Whatta ya say?
