Caramelized sugars, molasses and chocolate flavor notes reminiscent of English toffee enveloped in velvet. Savory, with a lingering, resonant finish.
About El Diablo Blend
The name, El Diablo, may be “dark,” but there are times when darkness is not a bad thing. Like when it’s dark-roasted coffee done right, such as this blend from Intelligentsia.
El Diablo is their signature dark roast. It celebrates the savory side of specially selected coffees by roasting them just to that magical moment that emphasizes the inherent sweetness and flavor notes of each and not a moment longer. Handles milk and sugar with ease.
Founded in 1995, this Chicago-based institution got its start roasting on vintage equipment within its first coffeebar. At the time, finding great tasting, freshly roasted coffee was surprisingly elusive. So, Doug Zell and Emily Mange decided to do something about it. They didn’t set out to change the world, just a small corner of it, and they certainly did just that, pioneering Direct Trade practices in the coffee industry before that really became a thing. Because of this, they were able to develop and source exclusive, remarkable coffees not found elsewhere.
Fast forward to today: with a focus on consistency, quality, and sustainability, Intelligentsia continues to be an industry pioneer, traveling the world to source the finest specialty coffee and roasting those beans at their Chicago and Los Angeles locations. True to their original quest, they believe that coffee in all its forms—whole bean, brewed, and espresso—should be an approachable, accessible luxury. For Intelligentsia, making coffee a memorable addition to any experience and making the act of preparing and enjoying a cup of coffee an experience in and of itself are key passions.
