Back of the Yards Coffee Co.


About Us

Chicago's Community Roasters

Back of the Yards Coffee Co. is a specialty coffee roaster located in Chicago's Back of the Yards community that not only produces great tasting coffee, but that also makes a direct social and economic impact in the community. We've established direct relationships with coffee growers in Chiapas, Mexico which allows for coffee growers to keep more revenue while allowing us to offer high quality specialty coffee in our neighborhood.

We Are Now Open!

Thanks to your support the Back of the Yards Coffeehouse is now open! Visit our coffeehouse located at 2059 W 47th Street, Chicago IL 60609.  If you can't make, order your coffee bag online and we'll gladly deliver to your home.

Drink Responsibly

Back of the Yards Coffee Co is committed to giving back. For every 12oz bag of coffee your purchase, one dollar is invested into the Social Impact Fund that benefits local initiatives with high social returns in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood.

How we actively engage with the community & the environment.

Back of the Yards Coffee Co. provides a safe space in our community that fuels economic growth and social change. We believe our coffee is building community from the highlands of Southern Mexico to the South Side of Chicago. We are planting the seeds for growth in our community by investing a portion of sales directly back to neighborhood programs that promote peace and education. We are committed to employing local youth and diverting 95 percent of our waste from landfill to compost.
