WHAT WE OFFER
Metropolis Coffee Company is a father-and-son-owned roasteria and coffee house located on Chicago's north side. We roast our range of distinctive, quality coffees by hand in small batches, with attention to each variety's inherent or peculiar character. We keep an eye on sustainability. Joining our family? Welcome. We'll help you explore the best coffee and tea options, choose the right equipment, and train your employees. We'll work with you to develop the custom-made, top-to-bottom program that will suit your business best. And we'll do it all with knowhow and a smile. After all, we're wholesalers who understand retailers -- our own, award-winning coffee house is proof of that.
It's in our blood. We source the best coffees, roast them to order, and deliver or ship them within 24 hours of the roast. We take this seriously, but with a sense of humor, too.
We offer the highest quality tea from Milwaukee's storied Rishi Tea Company. We offer whole leaf tea, tea bags, and fair trade organic chai concentrate.
We sell, lease, and service the best brewing equipment available. Our products include La Marzocco, Fetco, Faema, Kees Van Der Westen, Mazzer, and many others. We provide 24/7 technical support as well as a fleet of service technicians who are always on call. You got a problem? We can fix it.
Our careful and considered training program is innovative in the industry. Not only do we walk you and your staff through the steps for producing fantastic coffee and tea, but we impart the who, what, when, where, and why behind the methodology. To us, the person who actually makes the drink is one of the most important links in the chain. They're standing before the customer, right? Metropolis also provides documentation -- training manuals, certifications, etc. -- so you can establish consistency and standards throughout your staff.
It's not something we charge for, but hey, if we can help you with the details of conceiving, designing, and running a successful specialty coffee and tea business, you can spend more time obsessing over the coffee itself, and we'll all be better off because of it. Let us know what's up. We can look over your plans, offer specifics on equipment choice and placement, help with bar design, menu development, management of customer flow, staffing, and ordering. Ask. We can help.
