I'd heard of Chicago's Metric Coffee for years, but neglected to actually locate their cafe (because of all those pesky new Starbucks popping up), and when I finally did, I kicked myself for not having gotten here earlier, because their roast is SOLID.

The space itself, on an industrial part of Fulton Street, houses the roastery, and is is TINY, not really meant for hanging out, but I really do want to try some more of Metric's roast as soon as I can.
