CHICAGO (Meredith) -- Coffee-lovers, hold on to your hats. A gigantic, four-story Starbucks is coming to the Windy City in just two years.

On Wednesday, the coffee giant announced plans to open a 43,000 square-foot Starbucks Roastery on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile in 2019.

The high-end coffee shop will be the ultimate destination for Starbucks fans, as it will offer multiple brewing methods, specialty beverages and mixology.

The new “interactive” store will be the largest of three locations where Starbucks coffee will be roasted, brewed and packaged.  The original Roastery opened in Seattle in 2014, and the second is on track to open in New York City in 2018.

Chicago’s mayor said the project is an investment in the city and “a strong addition to Michigan Ave.”

“Chicago’s Magnificent Mile brings in millions of visitors from across this globe and is the perfect location for a world-class coffee destination,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement.

Starbucks said it eventually plans to open 20 to 30 Roastery flagships around the world.
