LOGAN SQUARE — Colectivo Coffee is coming to Logan Square.

The owner of the Milwaukee-based coffee shop was recently issued a city permit worth $1 million in renovations for the ground floor of the MiCa Towers at 2261 N. Milwaukee Ave., according to Chicago Cityscape, a website that tracks city permits.

It comes after Colectivo spokesman Cody Kinart told DNAinfo in May that the company had signed a lease in Logan Square with a tentative opening date of "October-ish."

It will be the second Colectivo Coffee outpost in Chicago. The first, on Clark Street in Lincoln Park, opened in May with a huge patio.

Founded in 1993, Colectivo Coffee prides itself on its partnerships with local growers and roasting batches by hand. The cafe, originally called Alterra Coffee, operates more than a dozen locations across Milwaukee and Madison, Wis.

Through the years, Colectivo also has developed its own Troubador Bakery brand. In Lincoln Park, all the coffee and baked goods are shipped in daily from the Milwaukee area. An array of sandwiches and Colectivo Keg Co. house beer also are on the menu.

It's unclear whether the Logan Square location will serve the same food and drinks. Neither Scott Schwebel, owner of Colectivo, nor Rob Buono, developer of MiCa Towers, could immediately be reached Tuesday morning.
