Chicago, 2012. It began over late-night beer and tacos in Wicker Park. We had both been working in the coffee industry for several years, but felt it was time to run a company of our own. We didn't have money, much less equipment, but we had visions of developing meaningful relationships with coffee producers, establishing a solid roasting program, and building the café of our dreams. In March of 2013, we found a space in Chicago's West Fulton neighborhood and officially launched Metric as a wholesaler and online retailer. In the years since, we've grown organically into a roaster and retailer with a strong emphasis on sourcing, quality roasting, and service. Today, Metric employs a small staff of coffee professionals dedicated to quality engagements, education and authenticity.
