Recent transplants from Silver Lake should rejoice at the news that Intelligentsia is opening their first S.F. location at 1125 Mariposa (near Mississippi) any week now. Coffee blog Sprudge caught the news, and this follows on the company's having taken over the very same space three years ago, which was to belong to Ecco Caffe. It will instead be rebranded as Intelligentsia San Francisco (Ecco is going away completely), and the roasters should be firing up as soon as the final permits are complete the actual coffee bar and retail component, however, won't likely open until early next year. This will be the company's eighth coffee bar and roastery, with all their other locations in L.A. and Chicago. [Sprudge via Scoop]
