The story of Jimmy Beans Coffee begins in 2016. It was a simple café off Fullerton & Rockwell in Chicago's Logan Square, opened by Jim Petrozzini. His inspiration was drawn from one central idea: a gathering place for a local community of coffee enthusiasts, friends, and neighborhood folks, to simultaneously serve as his own coffee laboratory.
With the support of that community, Jim has evolved into to a genuine scientist & artisan with his own personal style, focusing more on producing intriguing, complex small-batch roasts to bring meticulously crafted offerings to his native Logan Square.
Last month, Jim & his crew are opened up a new, dedicated roasting facility off Armitage to bring his roasts to the rest of Chicagoland, with a new online storefront under the moniker ‘Jimmy Beans Coffee Club’, an ode to the local café culture that has allowed him to grow so much. Additionally, there are some exciting things in the works for the café.
This doesn’t mean everything is changing, however. You’ll still be able to catch Jim on his classic red Diedrich roaster in the back of the original café, hanging out with his team, the regulars & new faces alike.
