"WRIGLEYVILLE — A Starbucks with a high-end Reserve bar will open in the Wrigley Field office building complex next year, the owners of the Chicago Cubs said Friday.
The new coffee shop is the first retailer announced for the office building, part of the Park at Wrigley Field complex.
But if you want a cup of the upscale, small-batch coffee, it's going to cost you big.
The Starbucks at Wrigley Field will have about 2,700 square feet below the Cubs offices and is expected to open in the second quarter of 2017, a Cubs spokesman said.
The Wrigley Field Starbucks will serve Reserve coffee, the chain's limited quantity small batch roasts. In New York, the newly opened Reserve stores have cold brew on tap and special Reserve espresso drinks like a Smoked Butterscotch Latte and a Shakerato Bianco.
While a $10 cup of coffee might seem steep, the "experience" of making it takes about 10 minutes. The siphon-brewed coffee "is a highly visual immersion demonstrating the brewing technique," via vacuum filtration."
