    The Mothership has all the best coffee buying options. No seats or table here, just coffee and DMC swag. Ask for barrel aged beans. It makes a big difference. #freshlyroasted #stayhigh

    Home to a roasting company, coffee education facility and to-go coffee shop that's open M-F 6-11am. If you are looking for anything Dark Matter Coffee related, it's here.

    Wifi was down while we were here. Remember if you're buying beans, you get a free cup of coffee! So good.

    Great coffee and surprisingly really good pastries, too. Definitely a to-go place so don't plan on lingering.

    Best coffee roaster in Chicago. Grab a pound of Unicorn Blood for $18 and snag a free cup of the hot stuff.

    Excellent lattes and sweet playlist. Grab a seat at the bar, get a pot of tea and enjoy the ambiance.

    I'm a big fan of the iced coffee. The pastries can be hit or miss though. Great donuts but not so good croissants.

    It's hard to find better coffee than Dark Matter. If you see an option to try it, you won't regret it.

    They offer coffee and a small selection of pastries. That's it. If you love coffee, you won't be disappointed.
