Yolk: It’s What’s For Brunch!

What would you consider THE most integral items for a classic American brunch? Eggs—check. Potatoes—check. Coffee—check. We here at Metropolis Coffee Company would choose the last item, of course–it’s what we do. We expect Taki Kastanis, owner and visionary of Yolk restaurants in Chicago, would pick the first–and we wouldn’t have it any other way. [...]

Community, Culture, Understanding & Respecting Cultures Quite Different Than Our Own, Pith Helmets & the Bean

“The Whole Bean” will be a dedicated series of posts from Metropolis co-owner Jeff Dreyfuss dealing with the esoteric and intellectual side of coffee.

Let the Blogging Begin: A Note from Tony Dreyfuss

Hello Blogopolis… Let’s kick this off. These are the notes from the undergrounds. As Dostoevsky famously began HIS Notes from Underground, “I am a sick man.” Indeed: we are sick for coffee.
