Over 4 years ago, Nate & his wife, Sonia, were drawn to Beverly by its charming bungalows and community-forward vision. They were quickly won over by Beverly's eclectic, big city vibes coupled with distinctive small-town benefits like farmer's markets and block parties and began to give back by attending town meetings, promoting special events featuring the arts, and supporting local businesses. Nate has lived in or around Chicago his entire life and has logged over a decade of time benefiting from the city's public transportation. Each morning, he walks (or runs) several blocks from his home to the nearest Metra station and commutes to work. It was through this daily ritual that Nate and Sonia's brain child - this project - was born. 

Gretta (kid sister to Nate) and Patrick currently live in Wheaton. Patrick is an ER nurse by night and a flight medic by day. He has a thing for cocktails - especially when they're tiki inspired. We're excited to put his mixology skills into use in the form of espresso and tea based specialty drinks. Gretta has felt drawn to the industry for her entire life - even as a child - because of the ability to change a space into a place that feels like a home. After working nearly 8 years in the industry, she understands the power of caring for one another through providing the most basic of needs - food & drink. In her happiest element, she is brewing, baking, cooking, and creating. She values service through the offering of a thoughtful, consistent product.
