Edgewater’s Metropolis Coffee at NATO Summit

One Edgewater businessman has been cleared by the State Dept. to be at the McCormick Place NATO conference on Sunday and Monday. He will be serving the morning coffee to anywhere from 1 to 500 foreign journalists along with pastry from Hoosier Momma Pie Company in Ukranian Village. If you are watching a telecast of the Conference and see a paper cup from Metropolis Coffee, you are not imagining.

Tony Dreyfuss opened Metropolis Coffee 1039 W. Granville, where he brewed his coffee in the back room and served it in front. As the business expanded he moved the brewing operation to 5545 N. Clark where the floors were strong enough to hold the huge coffee bags. He, also, now has a kiosk in the O’Hare International Terminal.

For the conference, Tony has chosen an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee. He will brew on site with the equipment brought in advance. He will arrive each morning on a shuttle from a designated location near the Loop.

Needless to say, Tony is excited. He will be talking to the world for 4 minutes about his coffee and Edgewater entrepreneurship. He has a serious supply of postcards for those journalists who want to order some Metropolis coffee from home. Returning international journalists can also shop at the kiosk.

Metropolis Coffee was selected by the Host Committee and their product is served at many popular local restaurants.
