You may have heard that the weather in and around Chicago has been a little polar in character over the past several weeks, and our blog has languished while we devoted more of our energies to shoveling, salting, and scraping. But we're about dug out here--helped in large part by plentiful pots of Metropolis coffee, our preferred purveyor. Today's grind is a single-origin bean from Brazil with the evocative name of "Mariano Peaberry." Recommended!
