Coffee continues to be the most efficient fuel for the human body's complex system of fuel injectors, auxiliary hearts, and flux capacitors. Fill up your flesh tank with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, drinks, and pastries at Metronome Coffee in Tacoma.
Metronome's passionate baristas employ brewing mastery and fervency for quality coffee to concoct myriad menu items of precisely crafted caffeinated beverages and café fare. Six different brewing methods, including trifecta, pour over, cold brew, french press, and Chemex, steep their own takes on flavorful beans in contests to court patrons’ palates. Espresso shots ($1.25) condense liquid buzzes into miniaturized portions for consumption in steamy sippables such as cappuccino ($2.50), mocha ($3–$4.20), and traditional lattes ($2.50–$3.70). A collection of carefully selected Mad Hat teas—such as the soothing My Throat Hurts ($2.50)—and freshly squeezed orange juice ($3.25) warm the hearts of noncoffee consumers and solid fare, including loaded-pancake pockets ($3.50) and savory cheesecake ($6), befriend mouths to gain access to stomach pool parties.
Warmed bellies give way to warmed souls with assorted spirits, such as wine ($7–$9/glass) and beer ($5), sourced exclusively from local Washington vendors. Like night watchmen perched atop streetlamps, large glass windows peer onto bustling city streets while vaulted ceilings and modern urban décor house the sipping patrons inside and set the stage for live musical performances.
Metronome Coffee's founders built their business around the idea of fresh coffee, tasty foods, and good music to sooth both cravings and consciences. They acquire their coffee through direct trade with farmers, each cup benefiting the people who did the hard work of growing it. They stock their pastry case with treats from local Corina Bakery and serve up hot pancakes made from scratch. They even squeeze their orange juice fresh. And they pair their food and drink with the tunes of local artists, helping customers discover new music.
