Coffee Lovers Will Flip Over Starbucks's Lavish New 4-Story Location
Starbucks fans in Chicago, the obsession is about to get even more real. The company is opening the third Reserve Roastery location in the U.S., and it’s the most lavish one yet.
The new location will be located on the corner of North Michigan Avenue and Erie Street on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. The first Roastery location opened in Seattle in 2014, and there’s one coming to N.Y.C. in 2018 as well. So what makes this Chicago location special? Well, it’s a four-story, 43,000-square-foot space dedicated entirely to coffee roasting.

“Having opened our first Starbucks store in Chicago nearly 30 years ago, our first outside of Seattle, this is a very special city for me. At the time, it was a true test for Starbucks because the Chicago customer is so savvy and discerning about their coffee,” Howard Schultz, Starbucks's executive chairman, said in a release on Wednesday.
The new location will offer multiple brewing methods, specialty Reserve beverages, and "mixology," as well as on-site-baked treats developed by Italian baker Rocco Princi.
We’re already planning a trip to Chicago in 2019.
