Obsessively Crafted for You

Legend has it, our founding father-son duo, Jeff & Tony, got into an espresso drinking competition, got super amped, and found themselves in front of a booth for a roaster manufacturer. Buzzing from their sheer love of great coffee and about a baker’s dozen double shots, they purchased a 12kg roaster on the spot with no idea where they would put it.

Metropolis’s first wholesale client was the serial-killer diner down the block, Standees. Tony installed the Bunn glass-pot brewer, and Jeff traded the first bag of beans for a bucket of chicken noodle soup.

Nowadays, you’ll find Metropolis Coffee at hundreds of partners in the US and abroad…really, just about anywhere great coffee is served. Metropolis is based in Chicago along the banks of the (if not squeaky clean) North Branch of the mighty Chicago River. 100% family-owned and decidedly independent.
