Café Bustelo Brings a Pop-up Coffee Shop to Wicker Park

Later this week we will get a unique taste of Columbia’s gourmet espresso at the Café Bustelo pop-up shop in Wicker Park.

Open from Friday, Sept. 5 to Sunday, Sept. 14, the pop-up coffee shop will offer complimentary Café Bustelo espresso, free Wi-Fi, giveaways, and branded swag, the space is designed to encourage visitors to stay for a while, work remotely, and enjoy great coffee. 

To help you stay awhile, the pop-up's schedule includes a mini-concert series with acoustic sets from bands such as Gemini Club and Glasslux, and DJ sets from Timbuck2 and Zebo.
