Look Inside the Massive New Starbucks on Michigan Avenue. The four-story roastery at 646 N. Michigan is the company's sixth — and at 35,000 square feet, its largest in the World.
It will feature multiple brewing methods, fresh baking on-site and a new menu of coffees and mixology.
The first thing you'll see when you walk through the door is the small batch roaster, that roasts 25 pounds of beans at a time. The cask that holds the beans is a design centerpiece that stretches from the first floor to the fourth.
Milan pastry Chef Rocco Princi has his latest outpost on the second floor with fresh breads, pastries and sandwiches — even an oatmeal and yogurt bar.
The location will also have craft cocktails, five of which are exclusive to the Chicago location.
