Homaro Cantu announced the first Berrista location today, his planned "flavor tripping" coffee and pastry chain. After taking to Facebook to ask the masses for approval, he settled on a building at 4219 W. Irving Park Road. Cantu lives nearby.
Cantu is hoping to change the way people ingest sweets by using the miracle berry he currently employs at iNG to make sour flavors taste sweet. By doing this, he plans to serve tasty yet sugar-free pastries and beverages. He is planning multiple Berrista locations, but look for the first to open in the spring.
