In the inaugural edition of Cup of Sugar, Chris Petrovich, the green coffee buyer and roasting manager at Metropolis Coffee, shed some light on the origins of fair-trade in the coffee industry and the effects it has on growers and producers in developing countries. Petrovich also details what he thinks is going to happen to up-and-coming roasters throughout the city. 

Metropolis Coffee’s roastery is located in the Avondale neighborhood in an industrial complex known as Rockwell on the River that also features companies like Metropolitan Brewing and Judson & Moore Distillery. Metropolis also has a café in the Edgewater neighborhood.
