Coffee makes the world go around. Whether it’s how you kick off your morning or your go-to afternoon pick me up, a cup of joe will give you the buzz you’re looking for. And lucky for us in Chicago Northwest, our eight communities are home to a list of unique coffee shops, cafes and are very own local roaster.

Chicago Northwest is fortunate enough to have its very own roaster in our backyard. Maple Leaf Coffee Roasters isn’t your typical coffee shop but the smell once you step in will make it hard to leave. Founded to serve both the casual coffee drinker and coffee obsessive by offering a variety of roasts! The family-owned business researches, sources, and roasts their coffee in small batches – all carefully credited to provide the best possible product.

Vintage Cafe is a coffee shop filled with comfort and nostalgia. The Schaumburg shop not only serves delicious handcrafted beverages, but is housed inside a building dating back to 1910. It is definitely worth a visit. The warm tones throughout the rooms and cozy touches on display make for a welcoming space to all coffee lovers.

Sometimes drinking coffee isn’t about the grind but simply drinking coziness in a cup. Coco & Blu strives to inspire creativity and maximize comfort when guests visit their space. The European style coffee shop features freshly roasted coffee and espresso drinks to be enjoyed around a comfortable fireplace. If it’s been a really long day, the Arlington Heights shop also serves a delicious espresso martini in-house — regular or decaf!

For those who enjoy their caffeine fix while also doing their part to help the planet, Green Joe Coffee in Schaumburg is the place. Their drink recipes use organic and fair trade sustainably sourced coffee while also using 100% renewable energy sources at their store, utilizing 100% compostable and recyclable materials when possible. Green Joe is not just brewed too! They offer delicious teas, fruit smoothies and infused energy drinks as well.

A space that doubles as an art gallery and shop, Coquelicot Gallery & Cafe is luxurious with beautifully unique pieces throughout. The family-owned and operated space supports local artists by selling fine art, jewelry, and handmade crafts all available for purchase. When it comes to the drinks, Coquelicot aims only for high quality and equally high standards. The menu offers fresh, fair-trade coffee (freshly ground in house) and organic loose-leaf teas.

Chicago Northwest coffee shops pour their heart and soul into each cup. Hop around these wonderful coffee shops and enjoy delicious drinks, created with passion and art.
