Chocolate & Coffeehouse Opening Soon

March 07, 2018

The Chocolate & Coffeehouse on Capitol Hill opens next week! Here’s the gist:

Intrigue Chocolate & Coffeehouse
1520 15th Ave
Seattle WA 98122
7am - 7pm all week

Target Opening Date: Friday 16th

(UPDATE: Due to electrical inspection scheduling delay, which caused other inspection dates to slip, we will be opening on Thursday, March 22nd instead.)

From Friday the 16th to Sunday the 18th we'll hav a Help Us Practice Special: coffee drinks are free with any other purchase. We’ll be practicing and dialing our machines, so the coffee is free while we get it right. Try the banana bread, or the sugar cookies made with our Jamaican cocoa powder, or the chocolate truffles, or even just a caramel.

Progress Update

OK!! So right now we are driving to open the doors. Every project is prioritized according to how it impacts our health inspection timeline.

A trip down memory lane:

What really matters, though, is locked in: our team is focused on service, the coffee is backed up by a strong partnership with Conduit, short breads with cacao nibs, the bean-to-chocolate drinks will delight you, not to mention all of our own chocolate goodies and expertise to wow you. What a huge weight off our minds!!

(If you're feeling peckish, check out this brownie recipe  or this crackle cookie recipe both made with our spicy cocoa mix!)

By the time we open shop, we’ll be close but not finished with construction. That leaves detailing to be addressed as we go, which we accept. Let’s start serving delicious food. Let’s start making lattes. Let’s start celebrating chocolate. Thank you in advance for seeing past a few rough edges that might remain by Friday the 16th. We’d like things to be done correctly, and sometimes that requires a little extra time, while leaving the doors shut when we could be open is just silly.

The most exciting updates:

The standing- bar tops came together beautifully.


The custom wall paper is fierce!

 The window sign is a beauty. Sean Barton did our signs again, and you read about his work on the Tasting Bar signage here.

 The big items still remaining on the list are:

  • Inspections
  • Retail shelving
  • Tables and Chairs
  • Move in!


New 12pc Chef's Assortment Box

This is a big one – beginning March 9th, we will be offering a new “Chef’s Assortment” 12pc box of annual flavors. This box has been designed to offer the widest flavor appeal, which is a common request from many of our guest purchasing gift boxes but are unsure of flavor preferences. We will still carry our 12pc Seasonal Exploration Box, which changes weekly, but now you can get attached to some of the flavors.

The Chef’s Assortment box will include:

  • Cacao Nib
  • Bourbon & Vanilla Bean
  • Jamaican Hot Chocolate
  • Basil
  • Mocha
  • Brown Butter
  • Passion Fruit
  • Orange & Sea Salt
  • Cranberry
  • Scotch
  • Pear Brandy & Honey
  • Honey & Sea Salt

Thank you all for your support! See you in the new Chocolate and Coffeehouse soon! (Friday the 16th!)
