Product Story

PROJECT X is an espresso and coffee blend created for Sawada Coffee and Hiroshi Sawada by Metropolis Coffee Company. Starting from samples of beans Hiroshi roasted for his Tokyo cafe, and working in secret (Code Name: “Project X”), Metropolis fashioned a blend that seamlessly recreated not just the flavor of his classic Japanese style, but also its intent. Coffee may be a simple and everyday experience, but when it’s perfect, it makes part of your day perfect, too. That’s world-class coffee culture.

One of my favorites

I always love getting this roast, such a special treat. Normally I don't care for dark roasts, but it's wonderfully smooth and has a great aroma.

Thought I didn't like dark roast until I tried Project X.

I'm a fan. It tastes like melted dark chocolate. So smooth and creamy. Decadent. Super cool packaging too.
