About Metric Coffee and Hellion Nitro Cold Brew

Facebook – Twitter – Instagram

Founded in 2013, Metric Coffee is a collaborative effort between Darko Arandjelovic (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 a 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.

The story of Metric is still being written. We started with just two people and have grown into a small solid staff united by our common passion. With a growing fleet of fantastic wholesale partners and cafe/training center in full swing, we are constantly growing and eagerly embracing what is next for us and our industry.


Hellion Cold Brew is the smoothest, most invigorating nitro cold brewed coffee around, inspired by an old Turkish proverb: “black as hell, strong as death, & sweet as love.” This coffee will delight the senses, awaken your spirit and add a vibrant pep to your step. We pride ourselves on cold brewing a sweet and delicious drink that is perfectly enjoyed straight up, but is equally as good with a splash of cream or mixed in an adventurous craft cocktail. Enjoy!
