Fall in Love with Fall: Three Seasonal Specials

Cool fall temperatures, the changing leaves and the anticipation of the holidays are making us want to cozy up with some warm seasonal specials. These special drinks are all available at the cafés in Chicago, Seattle and Portland now through the holiday season.  Caffè al Pepe This spicy latte is back by popular demand! A few of our cafés had to keep it on the 'by request' menu from when we introduced it last year. Made with honey, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg, the Caffè al Pepe has an unexpected and delightful mix of sweet and spicy.  You can watch Kara...

Crush the Rush - Chicago

On August 7th, 2018, eight teams of three baristas competed for the grand prize at this brand new, ferociously fast barista battle organized by La Marzocco and hosted at our Armitage Café.

New at the Cafés: Matcha Latte

Our cafés are now serving Rishi Tea Matcha Lattes. This green, powdered tea, dating back to the 10th century, has been taking the world by storm just in the last few years.

Made from stone ground green tea leaves, matcha is a mood-enhancing drink that is full of antioxidants and, of course, caffeine. Traditionally, Matcha is scooped into a bowl and whisked with hot water to create a foamy texture. Using the...

Coffee for a Cause: Negroni Week 2018 at Caffè Umbria

Negroni Week 2018 is June 4 - June 10. The Negroni Week Blend is available for Pre-Order! Given our Italian roots, we love Campari at Caffè Umbria in all its beautiful, tasty iterations, so we were very excited when given the opportunity to create a coffee blend for Negroni Week! It was a bit of a challenge to create a coffee that captures the essence and taste of this iconic and familiar cocktail – bitter, sweet, herbaceous and citrusy. We chose the Mexico for the bitter-sweet taste and the Kenya for its citrusy aroma. We roasted the coffee medium-light to bring out the...
