La Colombe Torrefaction plans to open its second Chicago location, in Bucktown, following the success of its coffee shop in the West Loop. The new shop is tentatively scheduled to open in September.
No address has been announced, but the new coffee bar is expected to be near the Damen Blue line, where Damen Ave., North Ave. and Milwaukee Ave. intersect. The neighborhood is also expected to soon see the opening of a small Caffe Streets coffee bar at the foot of the “L” station.
According to a Crain’s Chicago Business report, the new La Colombe shop will feature a $15,000 Alpha Dominche Steampunk 4.0. The company recently installed a Steampunk, the first in the city, at its West Loop shop.
