ALL our local Chgo Caribou locations closed a year (or so) back. Spent remaining $$ on my card online to purchase Caribou K-cups.

They men behind the counter were fabulous!! They were very friendly and funny. They seemed like they really enjoyed their job. The shop has all of its employees pictures and stories hanging up along the wall. This was a very personal and neat touch. Very impressed! Also, perfectly located across from Cloud Gate.

I love Caribou Coffee. There aren't any where I live so I go every time I find one while traveling. I had decaf cold press with a shot of toasted marshmallow syrup and a little cream. It is my favorite. The baristas are alway helpful and pleasant. I asked for a little less syrup and it wasn't enough so he... More
