What started as a collective of Chicago independent roasters, founded by Phil Tadros, became this roastery and small chain of coffee shops starting in June 2012. They still roast on site in the flagship store with their 12k roaster (soon to be replaced with a 25k in Logan Square) and offer their beans for subscription and mail order sale.

Head roaster Dennis Jackson has over a decade of coffee experience (some in the Czech Republic), and he tends to favor Kenya and Ethiopia coffees - and natural processed ones in particular. (Not too common in Chicago, but that's changing.)
