|This is Chicago's installment of a series of chain roasters and caf�s based in Italy's Piemonte region, but with multiple locations in international locations such as London. Located on the second floor of Eataly Chicago, it's a no-frills affair with six coffee blends available for purchase and only two different kinds of prepared coffee drinks for retail purchase: an espresso and a caff� macchiato in single and doppio sizes. Not even the cappuccino makes the list here, and we admire them for sticking to their guns and ensuring it's about the coffee and not the milk. A walk-up bar service with three marble countertops in front, they use a gorgeous, chrome, three-group Elektra Belle Epoque Verticale to pull shots with an even, darker brown crema with a small heat spot. It has a heartier aroma of darker flavors with a flavor profile consisting of chocolate and some herbal pungency all in balance. Served with a packaged Caff� Vergnano 1882 biscoffee biscuit on the side, it is surprisingly better than its Italian equivalent - although we may have caught their Alba location on an off day. With a small glass of still water optionally served on the side of their logo block IPA cups.
