La Colombe Coffee Opening In Andersonville At Clark And Foster

ogSince unveiling La Colombe’s first coffee blends in 1994, it has been a whirlwind ride for the dynamic duo of Todd Carmichael and Jean Philippe Iberti. The coffee has gotten much notice and in the past 18 years, they have opened several cafes in Philadelphia, New York, Washington D.C., Seoul and right here in the West Loop and Wicker Park neighborhoods of Chicago.

Now they have their sights set on Andersonville. They plan on taking over the high profile corner space at 5158 N. Clark (Clark and Foster). There has been no confirmed opening date, but according to a DNA story, La Colombe Torrefaction’s Midwest sales manager Corey Polkow stated that they are hoping to begin serving up coffee in early Fall. He told them, “We just looked at the area, and we felt coffee was a little underserved and wanted to bring coffee to the forefront a little more. It will be an exciting place for us to expose more people in Chicago to what we do.” He also stated that the store will be twice the space of its other Chicago locations with much more seating.

The company is also planning to open a roasting facility in Logan Square.
