Jeff & Tony Dreyfuss began Metropolis Coffee Company in Chicago in 2003. The father and son team embarked with the passionate purpose to present coffee as a communal art.

Community and the regard for differences among people and their ideas are central to our coffee philosophy. Coffee, like art, has an aesthetic.”
