Although his coffee house Noble Tree just closed for business in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood due to building issues, entrepreneur Phil Tadros says he has plans to open a new venture, a coffee roastery.
Tadros told the Chicago Eater that he plans to partner with Chicago-based small business developer Technori to open the Bow & Truss roasting house. From Eater:
Tadros said the roastery will open in about a month in the former Doejo headquarters at 2934 N. Broadway. They are awaiting delivery of a Probat roaster and have already established relationships with farmers in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama and elsewhere. From this, they also plan to open a number of grab-and-go pour-over coffee shops called P.O.C. and are scouting locations around the city. “There’s a lot to learn in regard to roasting,” Tadros said, “but the trick is really to buy good quality coffee.”
