This is not becoming a coffee-only blog; however, I couldn’t help but love the coffee scene in Chicago. Granted we have similar coffee shops and even the same roasts here in NYC, but the vibe was significantly more relaxed in Chicago. Perhaps this is due to the spacious nature of Chicago real-estate, or the simple fact that it is a less populated city; it was a true treat to stroll into a coffee shop, be able to find a well-lit table immediately and enjoy sipping a cortado it a relaxing quiet space. Just the way coffee should be enjoyed.
