This Starbucks mega store would put your corner shop to shame!

The four-story 43,000-square-foot location is a coffee lover’s dream. Located in Chicago, the insane location is set to open in 2019. Currently, there is already one located in Seattle and, according to their press release, one will be opening up in New York City sometime in 2018.

Entitles the Starbucks Reserve Roastery, the Chicago located in the Magnificent Mile district. According to Starbucks executive chairman, Howard Schultz, Chicago is where the first store opened “nearly 30 years ago.” The company selected this location because people living in Chicago are “savvy and discerning about their coffee.” The coffee addition will allow people to enjoy the best shopping area in Chicago while sipping on a cup of their coffee.

Customers can expect the Chicago Roastery to roast, brew, and package small batches of “Starbucks Reserve coffees from about the world”, says the press release. The building will be designed in a way “offering multiple brewing methods, specialty Reserve beverages and mixology.”

 

There will also be fresh baking on site courtesy of Italian baker Rocco Prince. Starbuck’s website reports that Rocco is known for his “artisan breads created from traditional family recipes, Princi’s handcrafted food pairs perfectly with Reserve coffee, elevating every daypart.” If your mouths are not watering from reading that statement, something is wrong!

 

The upcoming Starbucks mega store’s Instagram account has a preview of some of the drinks customers can expect to see. Some of which include: a ginger beer flavored cold brew, coffee with a lemon twist, and an espresso with a scoop of ice cream!
