Best coffee shops in Chicago

Hi! I decided to review 100 coffee shops in Chicago and share with you all my observations. I have to say that few of them are actually from out of Chicago, for example in Evanston or Highland Park.

I hope you will enjoy exploring those great coffee shops, and remember that it is my subjective opinion, your taste can be different than mine and you can find some coffee or places better or worst.

Most importantly enjoy the journey of exploring the world of Chicago Coffee Shops.

If you want me to review some coffee shops or get some recommendations, let me know!

Sorry to say but one of the worst coffees in Chicago, I want to give you my honest feedback so you don’t have to go through it.
