Starbucks is set to open the world’s BIGGEST store in Chicago this fall – and it’s four storeys high

COFFEE drinkers will soon be able to live out their wildest dreams as Starbucks’ biggest ever store is set to open this fall.

The coffee giant’s latest reserve roastery is coming to Chicago, and the Chicago Tribune reports that its doors will fling wide at 10am on November 15.

Starbucks’ biggest ever store is opening this fall in Chicago

At 43,000-square feet, it’s thought the four-storey coffee shrine will become Starbucks’ largest retail outlet in the world.

It’s reportedly going to be located on the Magnificent Mile on the former Crate and Barrel site.

Here, it’s expected to open until 11pm during the week and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

Starbucks’ roasteries are different to its usual high street branches as they give fans the chance to see the coffee being roasted on site and learn more about the hot drink.

Other Starbucks roasteries located around the globe include libraries stocked with titles on coffee, experience bars to learn more about how the drink is brewed, and mixology bars where coffee and tea is added to alcohol to create cocktails.

Branches also serve up coffees that you can have on top of ice cream, freshly roasted coffee beans to brew yourself at home, and include in-store “Princi” bakeries serving Italian-inspired food and snacks.

The Tribune suggests the Chicago branch will include drinks “inspired by the culture and traditions of Chicago”, rare beans, and employ 200 staff.
