Chicago Entrepreneur to Open Roastery in Lakewood

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.”
