Link’s Sweet Bean is a woman-owned, independent roaster, coffee bar and bakery. We have been in business since August 2005. We specialize in micro-roasted specialty coffees that are 100% premium Arabica beans with a wide selection of single-origin, which includes Fair Trade and Organic. We wholesale our coffees to specialty stores and to local eateries. Our baked goods are made daily on the premises.
It is our mission to aim to be the cornerstone in the community, creating a neighborhood atmosphere where customers feel comfortable and become instant regulars. We have earned a reputation for having products and service that are first rate.
Asides from offering great coffee and products, Link’s does such things as: donating coffee to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund / Have A Heart Farm which is used to establish an animal sanctuary; on our walls, you’ll find local artists’ paintings; we participate in Wilmette’s Go Green community environmental forum; we support local church groups / clubs / fundraisers by donating raffle items. In addition, Link’s was recently recognized in the Sheridan Road magazine Vol 2 No.4 for our Organic coffees. In addition, we have been awarded the Golden Cup award for coffee brewing excellence from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).
