INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED DRINKING
GREAT LAKES COFFEE ROASTING Co.
The “Institute” is a reinterpretation of a classic European cafe. It is a gathering place for all times of day. It is a community space where friends and acquaintances talk over coffee, artisan foods, and craft drinks. The solution seamlessly combines the aesthetics and functions of a bar,
coffeehouse and community room. A variety of seating arrangements accommodate different ways of conversing, while locally sourced reclaimed woods and naturally finished materials reflect the hallmark characteristics of Great Lakes coffee.
