During this 3 hour tour, we will be exploring 4 of Chicago's best coffee shops. I've chosen these shops based on the quality of the coffee and the shops contribution to coffee history in the US and Chicago. These shops are all located within walking distance from each other and will not require a car or public transportation during the tour.
