It’s no wonder that Reprise Coffee Roasters owner Adam Paronto was inspired by the Rat Pack’s first music label Reprise when naming his shop because he’s clearly decided to serve coffee his way. Having trained at a local coffee house, Paronto serendipitously decided to open his own store in the West Lake Forest Train Station nearly a year ago and showcase the art of coffee making in his space. “It’s been an incredible ride,” says Paronto. “I’m so grateful to my customers who have embraced our coffee and to the City of Lake Forest who has helped me expand.”
Paronto offers seating outside his store because he believes that coffee should be experienced as the Europeans do—that it is to be sipped, savored, and thoroughly enjoyed. Reprise Coffee Roasters, 911 Telegraph Road in Lake Forest, is open Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., 847-665-3353, reprisecoffee.com.
