La Cordillera is a mountain range running through South and Central America, and some of the world’s best washed coffees grow along its steep walls. La Cordillera has flavors of toffee and pecan, with a stone fruit’s acidity. This is a terrific breakfast blend and sweetens even more in milk. FLAVOR-Pecan and walnut accented by stone fruit, with a toffee finish BODY-Soft yet full ACIDITY-Focused THE METROPOLIS PHILOSOPHY – We believe the essence of coffee comes from tension; tension between the hardness of the bean and the heat of the roaster, between the pressure of water in the machine and the dense pack of the fine grind. Reward is finer when earned, and coffee is sweeter when challenged. The name Metropolis comes from Plato’s notion of Polis, or city-state. A Polis is complete and sufficient unto itself. Community and the regard for differences among people and their ideas are central to our coffee philosophy. Each bean and tea leaf is sourced with two groups of people in mind: the people that taste them, and the farmers that grow them. Coffee, like art, has an aesthetic. Our coffee aesthetic is rooted in the belief that great coffee comes from a line of respect beginning with the farmers and their respect for their land. We, in turn, respect the farmers by paying fair prices for their harvest, and respect our customers by taking great care in the roasting and brewing our coffees, and in blending our teas. Respect is at the core of our coffee philosophy, and taste is paramount.
