Product Story

The other day, we set out a tasting at our roasterie for a group of a dozen epicureans. We put out coffees from all over the world, light roasts, dark roasts, single origins, and blends. We had fruity floral coffees, dark and smoky coffees, simple profiles, complex blends, and everything in between. Not sure why we bothered. Turns out they like Spice Island, Just like everyone else. I mean, they liked the other stuff too, but if they had to pick one for an eternity on a desert island? Yep, it would be Spice. Served at many of the finest restaurants, hotels, and cafes around Chicago and elsewhere too.

  • DRIP COFFEE
  • ESPRESSO BLEND
  • COLD BREW COFFEE

  • COFFEE BEER

Great dark roast for those who don't usually like dark roast

I've never been a fan of dark roast coffee because I often find it too bitter. My husband prefers a darker roast with bold flavor, so we were looking for a good compromise to please both of us. Metropolis used to classify Spice Island as a Med-Dark roast, so we gave it a shot and we both love it. We use a percolator and really like the strong flavor of Spice Island without the bitterness I often detect in dark roasts.

I'd recommend Spice Island to anyone who doesn't typically like dark roast but wants to find a bolder flavor profile.

BEST COFFEE EVER

This coffee is the perfect blend of full bodied and substantial with an unparalleled smoothness. To me, the best coffees need no sugar and this one fits that bill very well. The only recommendation I have is packaging - please put the re-sealable tops on all of the bags - it makes a huge difference when storing it.

A staple in our house

My husband loves medium roasts and I love dark roasts. This one hits right in the middle, which is perfect for us. This one has quickly become our “house” coffee!
