Fresh from our Fuel topic on favorite smells, did you know you can tour local coffee purveyor Intelligentsia's roasting plant? It only costs $3, and you get as much coffee and tea you can drink, plus some fresh beans! Located at 1850 W. Fulton, tours are currently conducted on Saturdays once a month. Your next opportunity for the freshest coffee smell ever: October 1st. We've got you covered in Slowdown. [Thanks, Stephen]
