Product Story

The best vantage of the city of Chicago is from the crest of the Skyway Bridge at the Indiana/Chicago border. You’ll see the Blues Brothers drawbridge to your right, factories dotting the river and lakefront, miles and miles of brick apartment buildings, rising toward the gleaming skyscrapers downtown. You’ll have plenty of time to check it out because there’s an 8-car pile up ahead and something called a “gaper’s delay.”” Enjoy your delay with a hot cup of Skyway Blend.  Served at many of the finest restaurants, hotels, and cafes around Chicago and elsewhere.

Best for:
  • DRIP COFFEE
  • ESPRESSO BLEND
  • COLD BREW COFFEE
  • FRENCH PRESS
  • COFFEE BEER
  • pourover

Rediscover espresso at home

Following a recent move we found a my old SEB stovetop espresso maker that I bought when I lived in France. I needed some real coffee to bring it back to life after years in a packing box. Et voilà : Skyway Blend to rescue! The reviews are in: "That's the best cup of coffee you've ever made!" If you're into serious coffee you should try it.

We left Chicagoland, but keep ordering Skyway Blend FTO . . .

It took us years to find the perfect bean--one we, with very different taste preferences, both love. Even after moving out of Chicagoland, we continue to order these beans, 5lbs at a time, through a coffee subscription.
