CHICAGO | Oromo Cafe in Lincoln Square is the place to go for craft lattes of the gourmet variety. Owned by Cenk Duman, Oromo features the creations of chef Corey Joseph, a culinary graduate from Le Cordon Blu in Minneapolis. Joseph’s house-made, dairy-free nut milks and coconut-based syrups star in such concoctions as the pistachio and rose or hazelnut horchata lattes. For those looking for something more traditional, espresso-based and filter drinks are available, along with a very tasty Turkish coffee.
Hungry? The pastries at Oromo incorporate organic, sustainably sourced (where possible), raw super foods for mostly guilt-free experiences. Familiar and unfamiliar ingredients include things like Turmeric (for stamina), Camu Caumu (for Vitamin C), Spirulina (to detoxify), and Ashwaghanda (to relieve stress). Try the blackberry fig cake, Duman’s favorite, or the brownies made from hazelnuts and raw cacao.
Beyond serving up flavorful drinks and treats, Oromo is committed to the health of its patrons and our planet as a whole. Profits earned on sales of the cafe’s house brew go to benefit farmers in Ethiopia – the inspiration for the shop’s name, as the indigenous Oromo were the first to use coffee for food.
If you’re looking for a coffee shop that’s slightly out of the ordinary in the best way possible, you know where you need to go.
