My buddy Jesse at Intelligentsia Coffee got me this deck today! It’s a collaboration deck with Chicago’s own Affiliate Skateboards from a few years back. I was bummed that I never got to pick one up, so I was super amped when he surprised me at work with one of these limited gems.
Intelligentsia is known for having an amazing cup of coffee and easily my favorite soy latte(with an extra pull). But part of having a perfect cup means finding the perfect beans and working directly with the farmers who grow and harvest the coffee cherries. The Mission; “In the broadest terms, these coffees should be understood as a true collaboration, with both sides investing a great deal of time, energy and ideas to produce something great.”
If you find yourself in Chicago, stop by the Mill Park Location in the Loop. Get a fresh to order pour-over coffee and hit the streets.
For all you Dogtown rippers, hit up the Venice locations and tell Charles, Mr. Fakie says hello.
