Metropolis Coffee Company

Metropolis Coffee Company believes that the essence of coffee comes from tension; tension between the hardness of the bean and the heat of the roaster, between the pressure of water in the machine and the dense pack of the fine grind. They believe that reward is finer when earned, and coffee is sweeter when challenged. Each bean and tea leaf is sourced with two groups of people in their mind: the people that taste them, and the farmers that grow them. Metropolis Coffee Company believes that coffee, like art, has an aesthetic. Their coffee aesthetic is rooted in the belief that great coffee comes from a line of respect beginning with the farmers and their respect for their land. They, in turn, respect the farmers by paying fair prices for their harvest, and respect their customers by taking great care in the roasting and brewing of their coffees, and in blending their teas. Respect is at the core of their coffee philosophy, and taste is paramount.
