Dark Matter is a brilliant coffee company that was born this past forth of July. It is associated with (and lives above) the amazing Star Lounge Coffee Bar in Chicago. Star Lounge has been roasting its own coffee and selling it in store for a while. And now it’s available for sale outside of their own store.

I’ve never met anyone who has such a love for coffee as owner and roaster, Jesse Diaz. You can taste the difference in their blend. If you’re lucky, and you happen to be in Chicago, Diaz himself will walk you though the details of every coffee on the shelf. [Image via Chicagoist]
