In 2013 we founded Mettricks with the mission of bringing better coffee to Southampton.
After reopening last year following lockdown and finding our feet again, we now have an opportunity to take the next step in our speciality coffee journey.
Over the last 8 years we’ve proudly been at the heart of our city centre and Woolston communities, bringing some of the very best speciality coffee to Southampton from the top roasters from across the UK, with our current house coffee roasted by former Mettricks head barista Sam Williams at Hard Lines in Cardiff.
After huge success over the last couple of years, the guys at Hard Lines are now upgrading to a new piece of kit and they’ve offered us the opportunity to purchase their 5kg roaster and fulfill one of our long term ambitions of roasting our own coffee and create Southampton's very first speciality coffee roastery here in the city. Doing so will provide coffee career progression for our team and help us bring the magic of speciality coffee even closer to our customers.
This is where you come in… We are asking friends & fans of Mettricks to help us take this next step in our mission by financially supporting us in a crowdfunding drive to secure the missing investment we need to make this happen.
We will be taking part in the Bounce Back Solent scheme. For what we raise on our crowdfunder, the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership has agreed to match up to £5000 of funding to help us cross the line and bring the city's first specialty coffee roastery to Woolston in the very near future.
Mettricks wouldn’t be where it is today, especially after the last 18 months, without the support and goodwill of our customers and we look forward to you joining us on this next exciting stage of our journey.
Love, Spencer, Lewis & Team Mettricks
