Many of you may not know but we love our coffee here at Quintin. We have been working quite closely with the good folks over at Intelligentsia coffee for some time on a certain project that we will release towards the holidays.
We realized that a lot of our goals as companies were aligned. First and foremost, we take pride in creating our products in the USA. While we are manufacturing and QC’ing every single hat, in our factory located in Los Angeles. Intelligentsia is taking the time to roast all of their coffee beans, meticulously creating and inspecting their product, right down the street from us. Control over the process of actually creating the perfect hat, or creating the perfectly roasted coffee bean means ultimately providing a better suited product for our customers. We’ve found a strong commonality in our ability to leave no details untouched.
This past weekend the Intelligentsia crew hosted their ECW event in Los Angeles. The ECW or Extraordinary Coffee Workshop, the primary goal of this event is to unite growers who have made a serious commitment to quality coffee. Baristas, roasters, buyers, farmers and agronomists gather together in one place to learn from one another. Anyhow we were asked to create some hats and t’s for the event which we were excited to do and help support this great event as well as the good people over at the Intelligentsia brand. If you want to find out more about the ECW check out this website.

Also Travel + Leisure magazine just rated Intelligentsia as one of America’s coolest coffee houses. So big congrats to Intelli on that!If you want to read about that click here.
