5 Stars for Riverfront Espresso FTO
My wife and I have been big fans of Metropolis since the first day Tony and Jeff introduced it to Chicago. We liked and were buying Redline Espresso because it was the most available type of Metropolis Coffee we could get in the foodstores where we shopped. However, last Christmas we gave each other a fully automatic espresso maker so we started a Metropolis by mail subscription (2 lbs. every 2 weeks). It works out just right for our needs. Just as we begin to run out of beans, we get another 2 lbs. delivered to our door.
This month, we chose Riverfront Espresso FTO which we very much like. It is more full-bodied that Redline whose beans are lighter in color and dry as opposed to the more oily and darker bean of Riverfront. We also like that it comes from Fair Trade Organization certified sources. I think we'll be sticking with Riverfront for as long as it is available.
