The Zagat Review
"A must for the coffee curious" , this steampunk espresso bar in Humboldt Park roasts its own beans and serves pastries alongside its "strong" java drinks brewed up by "friendly" baristas; it’s outfitted with industrial fixtures, coffee sacks and chalkboard-mural menus and also sells coffee tools and other merch.

Great local coffee roasters that focus on small batches of coffee at a time, rotating so often. Their coffee, for me, is stronger than some more established brands. But, I do like how they are (I think) the only roasters to experiment with barrel aging. Barrel aging has done wonders for beer and it is catching on to the coffee industry as well.

Amazing coffee roastery - really enjoyed my experience which was particular highlighted by their employee Buck. I went for a bag of their coffee for my visit. They have a multitude of choices from a comfortable standard blend to several unique roasts. The atmosphere was comfortable with great wood interior, and no loud music during my visit as another had expirienced. The staff was definitely a HUGE shining point for me. I was helped by a gentleman named Buck who had an extremely thorough knowledge of their roasts. He took the time to explain each of them in great detail when asked, offered his personal opinions and recommendations, and offered a taste of the roasts he had available as I decided which bag I would purchase. Additionally, if you buy a bag you also get a free coffee. This was an extremely positive experience and I hope they recognize Buck as a really exceptional employee, as he really contributed to my experience there.
