Metropolis Coffee Company is a coffee roasting company and retailer located at 1039 W. Granville Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. The company supplies coffee to several Chicago-area cafes and restaurants, as well as Chicago locations of Whole Foods. In 2005, they were named by Newcity as the best place in Chicago to buy coffee beans[1] and noted for their donation of $2 to Oxfam for Tsunami for each pound of beans purchased.[1]

Metropolis was founded by father and son Jeff and Tony Dreyfuss, both of whom travel overseas to purchase their beans from places including Peru and the Indonesian island of Sumatra.[2]
