Slow Food Youth Network Chicago is kicking off their first year by curating a series of tours and events highlighting our local food system. We invite youth and adults who are curious about their food systems to join us in learning about food production!
Metropolis Coffee Company is a family-owned, Chicago-based coffee roasting company, wholesaler and café. Join us on Thursday, September 26 at 5:00 p.m. to learn about the basics of coffee, get a tour of the the roasting, packaging, and fulfillment processes, and enjoy a fun tasting! Perfect for coffee lovers and conscious consumers.
Metropolis' roasterie is located at 3057 N Rockwell at the rear of the complex. If arriving on foot or by bike, follow the signs for Metropolis down the brick alley just north of Nelson St. If arriving by car, there is an entrance just north of there that is open to vehicle traffic. Follow it back and around to the right and you'll see the front door as well as available parking. Please note that closed-toe shoes and a head covering are required during the warehouse portion of the tour (hairnets will be provided for anyone not wearing a hat).
