Metropolis Coffee Co. brews up strong sales

By Brittany Magee

Metropolis Coffee Company is one of Chicago’s premier small batch coffee roasters. Jeff and Tony Dreyfuss opened Metropolis in the Edgewater neighborhood in 2003. The father-son team has a retail coffee shop and roasting facility with 300 wholesale clients in the Chicago area and many more across the country. Dreyfuss says sales have risen by an average 20 percent per year, which he credits to the company’s mission to produce high quality coffees in sustainable ways that “have a positive impact on peoples’ lives.”
