While Caffe Streets is thrilled to be ranked among the elite “Third Wave” coffee shops across the country, our primary objective is to provide an enduringly memorable experience for every patron. These abiding memories are achieved through a three-pronged standard of aesthetic, culinary, and customer service excellence.
Our vibrant, inviting space is in perfect harmony with the eclectic, bohemian spirit of the surrounding Wicker Park neighborhood. A sleek bamboo interior, stained glass windows, and aerial light fixtures provide an engulfing air of elegance accented by the befittingly urban glow of real street lamps. Spurning the impersonal, solitary table layout of modern coffee shops, our broad, handcrafted benches foster socialization as well as comfort. At Caffe Streets, we are all in this together.
As a member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, we take a meticulous approach to our beverages through a combination of state-of-the-art equipment and superior ingredients. From our centerpiece, the top-of-the-line Synesso Hydra espresso machine, to our custom-built pour over bar, to the stately Hario cold brew dripper; our facility blurs the line between coffee bar and laboratory. Using premium beans from a rotating selection of local and regional roasters, along with high-quality milk and ingredients from vendors who share our commitment to excellence, we pursue perfection in every cup.
This perfectionist ideology could never come to fruition without our highly skilled, approachable staff. Our comprehensively trained baristas treat our exceptional equipment and coffee with due respect and use their expertise to churn out a world class product. This disciplined, artisanal approach to coffee is compounded with an impeccable customer service ethic. Our team is as dedicated to providing friendly, efficient service as they are to engaging and educating; even hosting special home barista classes and intensives for customers eager to learn more.
By offering consistently amazing coffee in a friendly, social atmosphere, Caffe Streets strives to be the shop we wish all others could be.
