Where to buy Intelligentsia coffee in the DC area by the bag

Anyone know where I can buy it by the bag to brew at home? Looks like only a handful of places even offer it by the cup.

    Pitango Gelato (http://pitangogelato.com/coffee/) now carries Counter Culture beans, but the guy at the Capitol Hill branch told me that in the near future they would be carrying Intelligentsia coffee instead. Don't know how reliable this information is.

      Update: South Block Smoothie in Clarendon sells the house blend for about $17 for a 1lb bag. Thanks @orangemix!

        I think Dolcezza in Dupont carries Intelligentsia, as well as some other great roasters, like Stumptown.

          There's a limited selection at Baked&Wired in Georgetown, iirc, and also a limited selection at South Block smoothies in Clarendon part of Arlington.

          Maybe Chinatown Coffee or Sova, and I could've sworn I saw some at Whole Foods. Hope this will get you started....

            Thanks! I heard South Block had it but I didn't know they sold bags.

            Why not just order it from their website - http://www.intelligentsiacoffee.com/p...

              Shipping is extremely expensive because they only ship via UPS. The cheapest option, ground rate for a 1lb bag, is $10.84. And the coffee itself is already so pricey that I'm hoping to find it for sale locally.
