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.

Best for:
  • DRIP COFFEE
  • ESPRESSO BLEND
  • COLD BREW COFFEE
  • FRENCH PRESS
  • COFFEE BEER
  • pourover

A pleasant surprise

I typically buy the Redline whole bean but I mistakenly bought the Spice Island., and it was a pleasant surprise! A dark roast as opposed to the medium Redline, I was surprised to find it didn't have the typical, stronger dark roast edge, had a nice mouth feel, and exhibited the round, delicious tasting coffee I've come to expect from Metro.

Spice Island is the best!

I’ve been drinking Spice Island since 2010. It was the choice at the restaurant I was running. I don’t work in restaurants anymore but it is what I brew at home. We get compliments whenever someone discerning has a cup. Others have come and gone but Spice Island is still the best.

Fabulous flavor

This is a great and complex blend. It's a little bolder than I usually brew, but I love the flavor.
