Product Story

We're so lucky to work with the good folks at Las Lajas year after year. There's really nothing else quite like it. Bursting with flavor is an understatement. Like the cup can't hold all the flavor. Head scratching tasting notes, tumbling out as we're trying to describe this beauty. Cherry cola and sage. Yeah, we tasted that. More as well. In fact, here's the whole list from our 'cupping sesh. Honey, sage, fruit punch, pink bubblegum, mead, rum, hibiscus, wild, lemongrass, blueberry, grape soda, tart cherry, lemonade, mineral water, maraschino cherry, cherry cola, sweet tarts, dark chocolate, round body, balanced acidity.  Nuts, right? Actually, no nuts. Everything else though.

Better than what I can find in Detroit

I didn't care for this as much as others I've had. But I do enjoy the single origin coffee and have purchased from Metropolis for many years.

Best coffee

This is my favorite coffee. It's always an exciting time of year when it comes available, and a sad time when it's done for the year.
