Whether you’re connecting with colleagues, friends, neighbors or simply looking for friendly place to grab a cup of coffee on the go, you won’t find anyone more knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the coffee business than owner, Mike Shipley.  Mike and his family got their start in 2006 when they opened Conscious Cup, their first café and coffee roasting shop in Crystal Lake. They take great pride in offering environmentally and socially sustainable coffees made with ethically sourced beans and served with a smile.

To get better acquainted with Mike Shipley and the family’s philosophy behind their business, reporter Alex Gaul and his video crew take us behind the scenes at both Cook Street Coffee and Conscious Cup.  Join Alex as he discovers the secrets to Cook Street Coffee’s success with the latest in his 365Barrington video series called “Barrington Uncovered”.

If you’ve never been to Cook Street Coffee before, we highly recommend you pay Mike and company a visit. You’ll find the café at 100 East Station Street, right at the corner of Station and Cook Streets in Barrington.  For hours and to learn more about the family business, CLICK HERE to connect with the cafe on Facebook or visit CookStreetCoffee.com.
