Foursquare Tips

  • Dark Matter is opening an Express Espresso & Coffee Bar on Monday April 1, 2013. Hours will be 6a-11a Mon-Fri with tasting at 11a daily!
  • Wifi was down while we were here. Remember if you're buying beans, you get a free cup of coffee! So good.
  • Unicorn Blood. Best coffee in Chicago. Also really enjoy the Costa Rican roast.
  • Great for a quick cup o' joe (or some espresso) in the morning! Sweet shop, awesome people.
  • Home to a roasting company, coffee education facility and to-go coffee shop that's open M-F 6-11am. If you are looking for anything Dark Matter Coffee related, it's here.
  • Best coffee roaster in Chicago. Grab a pound of Unicorn Blood for $18 and snag a free cup of the hot stuff.
  • If you are going to drink the best coffee in Chicago, you might as well get it from the Mothership.
  • The best local coffee in Chicago. I love their special lattes. The rock/metal music adds to the character. But know, this is where they roast the beans, so it's takeout only.
  • Speciality coffee made upon request from a wide selection flavors, totally recommended
  • A+ coffee. $20 box of joe for events. The vegan trailmix scone is amazing, and they have vegan muffins!
  • Dark Matter Coffee adheres to a philosophy where quality coffees are sourced based on traceability, innovation and social responsibility.
  • The best iced lattes ever, great staff and fun music!!
  • I'm a big fan of the iced coffee. The pastries can be hit or miss though. Great donuts but not so good croissants.
  • Coffee...All kinds of legit drinks
  • Coffee - all kinds
  • The Mothership has all the best coffee buying options. No seats or table here, just coffee and DMC swag. Ask for barrel aged beans. It makes a big difference. #freshlyroasted #stayhigh
  • It's hard to find better coffee than Dark Matter. If you see an option to try it, you won't regret it.
  • Great simple menu, love the drip!
  • Excellent lattes and sweet playlist. Grab a seat at the bar, get a pot of tea and enjoy the ambiance.
  • Love buying my coffee beans while listening to death metal, personally
