After departing local coffee magnate Intelligentsia to form their own concept, Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski are launching their eponymous new coffee concept, G&B, in the form of a long-term experiment at Jessica Koslow's SQIRL Confitures Kitchen starting October 4. Along with various drip coffees from roasters around the country, Koslow will also offer jam-oriented treats, including fried brioche slathered in butter and spread with SQIRL jam. There will also be house-made almond milk served with granola and coffee drinks.
Glanville and Babinski hope to explore the intricacies of a unique coffee concept that focuses on greater flexibility rather than stringency. Glanville, who once showed Eater how to pull the perfect espresso, is now realizing that the stricter and smaller menu he once propagated at Intelligentsia needs to relax a bit through this newer, custom-tailored experience.
Expect a variety of iced coffee and tea drinks that will be pre-mixed with the appropriate sweeteners or flavoring ingredients, accentuating each particular coffee bean. With Glanville's green coffee buying experience, they'll apply similar principles to roasted coffee, using samples from roasters across the U.S and potentially internationally, like Denmark's Coffee Collective. The menu will have up to five coffees by the cup and a revolving single selection of espresso. Hours to run Thursday to Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for at least five months, possibly even longer.
