The World’s Largest Starbucks is Only a Short Drive Away
The world's largest Starbucks is set to open this Friday at 9 a.m. on Chicago's Magnificent Mile.
Sure, you're driving to another state but for a lot of us in West Michigan a drive to Chicago is an easy weekend trip and if you're a coffee lover this is definitely worth it.
The Starbucks Reserve Roastery will unveil its 4-story, 35,000-sq. foot space at the grand opening so this isn't your typical neighborhood Starbucks, even with the coffee itself.
Starbucks Reserve is a selection of the rarest, most extraordinary coffees Starbucks has to offer.
The coffee made and sold at the Chicago location will be exclusive to that.
Each floor gives you a different experience. The first floor is where the coffee is roasting & brewing. Grab a pastry as a side but save enough room for the second floor where you'll find an authentic Italian bakery. Mix things up on the third floor with the experiential bar including coffee flights, espresso shots, and nitrogen-infused gelato. Now that you're energized from all that coffee, kick back and enjoy a cocktail at one of the two bars on the fourth and final floor.
Even with all that, the coolest thing has to be the centerpiece of the building -- a 56' steel cask that's continuously transporting beans throughout the building.
Chicago is the sixth Starbucks Reserve Roastery location. You have to see it to believe it! Check out the video above to get a sneak peek.
