Thanks to the inside scoop from a good friend of mine, we were able to stop by a brand new coffee roaster in the Lakeview neighborhood today. Bow Truss is rustic, spacious, and simple- all of its decor reminds me of a snowy, vintage ski resort up in Vermont. A strange, but welcome feeling in comparison to this Chicago summer.
The prices are out of this world, nothing on their limited menu creeps higher than $3. With an Intelligentsia across the street, they are definitely going to give them a run for their money. I spent a good ten minutes chatting with whoever was working today, and unfortunately never caught his name, but I was thrilled at how genuinely interested he was in having sharing a conversation. We talked about the launch, and he kindly gave me more information on their different roasts and how quickly the Bow Truss concept became a reality.
I love this place.
My only complaint is that I don't live close enough! Just shy of ten days old, we wish this little roaster nothing but future success as they grow. Definitely swing by if you're in the area, you won't be disappointed.
