MUST VISIT CHICAGO: LA COLOMBE








La  Colombe Torrefaction

955 W Randolph Street
Chicago, IL 60607
West Loop Neighborhood

Erick, Hector, Sofia and I all took a quick trip for some lattes on Saturday morning, and stumbled upon a new gem hidden in the city's West Loop neighborhood.  The West Loop has so many amazing little shops and restaurants that I don't think I've ever seen before, a lot of them opening up for the first time so we'll definitely be making a trip back.  It's so nice to have family in town visiting, we always wish they could stay longer (or live closer!)

why you should visit
• beautiful interior
• fresh milk straight from the farm
• full size, in house coffee roaster
• awesome mugs and saucers
• complimentary sparkling water

good to know
• no wifi
• no menu (traditional espresso drinks only)
• no fancy flavors

what to order
• latte
• mocha
• bottled iced coffee
