Longtime Seattle roasting and retail company Caffè Umbria has opened a new roastery, training lab and café in Chicago. On W. Armitage Ave. between Western and California in Logan Square, the facility will serve as the Umbria production headquarters for wholesale clients from Chicagoland to the East Coast. The roastery, which occupies a little less than a quarter of the 9,000-square-foot space, includes a bright red, 30-kilo STA Impianti roaster from Italy.

Since its founding by partners Emanuele Bizzarri, Pasquale Madeddu and Jesse Sweeney, Umbria has grown to include three Seattle cafés, plus two more in Portland, Oregon. In 2015, the company opened its first café in Chicago in River North.
