To Great Coffee.

Black Ink Drops


Our Story.

Hi, we are The Hobbs, and our love story began with a cup of coffee 12 years ago. I remember when we were 19 years old, just starting to get to know each other. Michael would pick me up late at night and we'd just drive around, coffee in hand. I've always been a coffee drinker. As time went on our love for coffee and each other grew, We'd visit cafes and try different drinks, and eventually got married and started  family.


I always say coffee is my love language. Michael will always brew my coffee in the morning because he knows I love waking up to the smell. He lovingly makes me a pour over in the afternoons, and never forgets to ask if I'd like a latte on his way home from running errands. 

Coffee has always been apart of our life and my family culture (Italian New Yorkers love their coffee). We always dreamed of owning a brick and mortar coffee shop, but in a Covid world, starting a business seemed like a wild dream. We talked it over and decided a coffee truck seemed like the best way to go! So we are starting from the beginning.


We want to share our love and passion for coffee with our community! So here we are, living our best life. Bringing delicious coffee you didn't know you needed into your life!

Why Ethical
Coffee Matters 


Coffee is something we both enjoy. We enjoy it even more when we know the purchases we make are going towards great causes and support local businesses. Our mission is not only to introduce great tasting coffee to the Chicagoland area, but to create a space where you can contribute to many different causes or businesses from one place.

We believe in working with fair-trade coffee farms and 100% organic. When you choose Fairtrade coffee, not only can farmers build a better quality of life for their families and communities, they can invest in growing better quality beans too.
