Help New Wave Coffee Staff!

Hey Friends,

As you know the situation for many baristas/service industry folks in the city of Chicago (and the country) is pretty bleak right now. The staff here at New Wave is in the same boat unfortunately. We have found ourselves without work for the foreseeable future and are looking for some help in this time of uncertainty. We do not know when we will be back open but our bills, and livelihood wait for no one.

The barista's at New Wave are looking for financial help while we wait out this storm.  Any support from our neighbors, friends and the community would be greatly appreciated and all proceeds will go straight into the employee's pocket to help keep their head's above water.


We can't wait to get back to serving you coffee, laughing with you and being a place our community has counted on over the years. Thank you.

Our Team,
Jack, Mars, Mary, Claire, Alex, Nick, Ren
