Co-founders and brothers Andris and Gato Balodis grew up in Latvia and have always had a passion for coffee. “I think that coffee is a great connector of people and can bring people together from anywhere in the world,” said Gato. The two brothers opened Coffee Joint with the hopes of bringing the culture of Latvia to the United States. In fact, Coffee Joint is the only Latvian-inspired coffee shop in Chicago. They also feature sandwiches and pastries from a local bakery, as well as a kid’s menu. Some of our coffee drinks favorite include:
• Marshmallow Latte-yummy homemade toasted marshmallow
• Vietnamese Coffee- our recipe with Espresso and sweetened condensed milk
• Affogato- double Espresso shot over vanilla ice cream
“I remember growing up in Latvia and drinking coffee almost every day. Coming to America, I noticed how many coffee chains exist in this market and the high demand for coffee. Its embedded in people’s daily routine,” said Co-founder, Andris Balodis. “I believe that if someone is going to drink coffee every day, he or she should drink nothing but the best quality. And that is what we try and achieve at Coffee Joint."
