Another Wicker Park coffee shop, Ipsento may be one of Chicago’s best known small-batch roasters. Ipsento is one of the few Chicago coffee shops to roast its beans on site, which means you’re getting some out-of-this-world coffee. Not to mention its specialty drinks and food menu: for example, the Wela Latte, an Abuelita Mexican coffee-twin with bittersweet chocolate and cinnamon (a collaboration with local band ALERT312), and the Ernest Hemingway lox croissant sandwich. This literary hiding spot is where you need to go for a relaxing Saturday with a good book and latte. Go for the coffee education classes, and you’ll be sold on the newest wave of specialty coffee. Said owner Tim Taylor to CoffeeTalk magazine, the key is to show customers the way of better coffee slowly but surely. "We want to bring the specialty coffee industry to the next level by engaging and inviting consumers to experience the true taste of coffee," he said. "However, it is about gradually educating our customers, not just telling them what they need to like, and this is what we have been trying to do here."
