World’s largest Starbucks opens in Chicago

CHICAGO (CNN) — The “largest Starbucks in the world” opened Friday in Chicago.

The building, which formerly housed the Crate and Barrel’s flagship location, is five-stories and sits along the city’s famous magnificent mile.

Starbucks is calling the shop/tourist attraction a “roastery,” where customers can check out different stages of the brewing process and explore the world of coffee.

The Chicago roastery employs 200 people and features specialty foods and cocktails.

It is also the only Starbucks location, outside of Milan, to sell liquid nitrogen gelato, designed to be eaten with coffee.
