Continuing expansion into the Chicago market, Wisconsin-based Colectivo Coffee Roaster has opened the doors to a third cafe in Chicago in Andersonville (5425 N Clark St.).
The new 2,500-square-foot cafe features sidewalk patio seating, operable floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and Colectivo’s signature design touches, like handmade glass art and eclectic gargoyle sculptures.
Thanks to its newly launched beverage innovation team, Colectivo’s Andersonville cafe will also offer a new array of seasonal beverage creations including:
● Sparkling Espresso: A mix of Colectivo’s chocolatey Espresso Toro infused with a sweet, sparkling grapefruit soda water.
● Maple Cold Brew Oat-Lait: Abalance of creamy oat milk, maple-flavored syrup, warming cinnamon, clove and ginger, and Colectivo’s award-winning Session Cold Brew.
● Cold Brew Horchata: A blend of sweet and aromatic chai, fresh ginger, and velvety white chocolate.
Other new menu additions include Cold Brew Horchata, Cold Brew Almond Honey au Lait, Matcha Lemonade and more.
“All of our new drink specials are based on our timeless Colectivo coffees and Letterbox-branded teas and incorporate seasonal ingredients as well as flavors,” says Al Liu, Colectivo’s VP of coffee and head of beverage innovation. “We’re thrilled to serve them up to our friends and neighbors in Andersonville.”
Like the Lincoln Park and Logan Square cafes, Andersonville will also offer Session Roasted coffees, Nitro Cold Brew on tap, Colectivo Keg Co. house beers, Letterbox Fine Teas, and a food menu of made from scratch & delivered fresh daily Troubadour bakery items, all-day breakfast, and signature sandwiches made on slow-made bread.
September also marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of Colectivo Coffee in the basement of a Milwaukee warehouse.
“We are constantly amazed that what started as a small idea to simply do something really well has evolved into the organization it is today,” said Lincoln Fowler, co-owner.
