on bar: black & white coffee roasters the classic
we taste: caramel, peach, milk chocolate
few things are as near and dear to our hearts as espresso. as complex as it is classic, we take great care to assure our house espresso sings. our espresso is served in one of two custom ceramic cups we commissioned from Ephraim, WI-based potter Ryan Pederson. inspired by Noma's work with coffee legend Tim Wendelboe, one cup is fluted to enhance sweetness and the other is tuliped to clarify acidity. the espresso is accompanied by a piece of chocolate from our friends at Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco.
M A C C H I A T O || 3 oz
Italian for "marked", we serve real macchiatos, espresso with just a spot of perfectly steamed milk. join the movement: make macchiatos traditional again.
C O R T A D O || 4 oz
Spanish for "cut", a cortado is 2 ounces of espresso cut by 2 ounces of steamed milk. we like to think of this as the golden ratio, it's our go-to milk drink.
C A P P U C C I N O || 6 oz
a classic cappuccino is defined by equal parts espresso, steamed milk and foam. we steam our milk to a tight microfoam so your last sip is as creamy as your first.
L A T T E || 8 oz | 12 oz
for a stellar latte, you need both amazing espresso and milk. at discourse, we've tasted dozens of varieties of milk and milk alternatives to offer you the finest. we proudly serve red barn whole and 2% milk, silk cashew milk and occasionally even house nut milk. if you like it heavy on the foam, ask your barista to make your latte dry.

slow-drip: pilcrow kenya gicherori AA
we love cold brew. a lot. we brew both toddy immersion and kyoto slow-drip styles with constantly rotating coffees from our stable of roastery partners. we're always experimenting with new cold brew infusions, so don't be afraid to ask what craziness we have up our sleeves.

our house latte. as near and dear to our hearts as anything we will ever create, moonwater has been with us since our first public outing and will never leave our menu. it is an exercise in balance: sweet, bitter, spice and salt all playing together in perfect harmony.
W H A T W I N T E R F O R G O T || 8 oz
espresso | steamed whole + oat milk blend | chai concentrate | honey | drinking chocolate | ras el hanout | aroma of winter | orange peel
what winter forgot is the first drink we created upon arriving back to the workshop. it serves as a tribute to the cold months passed. cardamom, clove, ginger and cayenne play in symphony, supported by the aroma of smoke, orange and spring flowers.
H O R I Z O N || 8 oz
cold brew | honey simple | tonic | whole milk | chamomile soda | sumac essence
last year, our incredible neighbors brought us a bag of foraged sumac: one taste and we were hooked. horizon (previously guji sunrise) is our ode to sumac and sunsets. at times sweet, at times sour, but always ridiculously tasty, this puppy is the kind of weird you can't get enough of.
S P R I N G A F || 10 oz
citron green tea soda | rosemary + ginger simple | muddled sage | lemon juice | bittercube bolivar bitters
spring af was created for spiaggia cafe in Chicago, IL and has quickly become a house favorite. immensely refreshing and vibrant, spring af bounds forth with resonant flavors of sage, lemon, green tea and ginger. simply put, it’s new life in a glass.

shari is the first of what is bound to be many incredible concoctions from one of our new family members, the ever incredible myles parenteau. myles created shari as a tribute to his late aunt who had a deep affection for red zinger. it's juicy, delicate and downright delectable.
