Founded in 2013, Metric Coffee is a collaborative effort between Darko Arandjelovic (former owner of Caffe Streets) and Xavier Alexander (former Roasting Manager at Intelligentsia) in order to create a shared vision for quality coffee and service. All of our coffees are roasted on this self restored ’61 Probat UG 15. Working with this vintage, built-to-last machine produces exceptionally well balanced, sweet, and clean coffees. We are thankful to work with our beans on one of these rare and sought after old roasters. For us it represents the perfect meeting of old world method and modern technology. Metric West Fulton is Metric Coffee’s first retail venture–serving a traditional menu with brewed coffee, pour over options, and espresso-based drinks. The cafe serves as an extension of Metric: highlighting our coffee offerings and serving as an educational space.
