The Marisol Wake-Up Gift Box includes two handcrafted, USA-made Jono coffee cups selected by Marisol Chef Jason Hammel and Metric Coffee’s special Marisol Blend.

The coffee cups are meticulously produced using a 10-step process that includes jiggering, trimming, applying the handle and glazing the entire piece by hand. They are made of clays formulated in the Northeastern region of the US out of completely non-toxic and food safe materials. Jono forms and fires them to stoneware temperatures (over 2000 degrees Fahrenheit) with measures in place to ensure uniformity and durability for every firing. The cups are dishwasher and microwave safe. Each holds 10 fluid ounces.

Founded in 2013, Metric Coffee is a collaborative effort between Darko Arandjelovic (owner of Caffe Streets) and Xavier Alexander (former Roasting Manager at Intelligentsia) forged in order to create a shared vision for quality coffee and service. All of their coffees are roasted on a self-restored '61 Probat UG 15. Working with this vintage, built-to-last German machine produces exceptionally well balanced, sweet, and clean coffees. All Metric Coffees are roasted in Chicago. Metric’s Marisol Blend (citrus-chocolate-balanced) is a medium roast. The bag contains 340 grams (12 ounces) of freshly roasted coffee beans.

Marisol, the restaurant and bar at the MCA features innovative flavors from Chicago chef Jason Hammel. Marisol can be your neighborhood coffee spot, or an art-filled destination for dinner and drinks. Surrounded by an immersive art environment by artist Chris Ofili, diners enjoy table service with a full bar and private dining space, or counter service with communal tables that form the Street, a community work space to plug in or meet friends.

Marisol is named for Venezuelan-American artist Marisol (1930–2016), a star of the New York art scene and friend of Andy Warhol. Marisol’s iconoclasm and glamour, combined with her international outlook, make her a fitting inspiration for the MCA’s new restaurant. Marisol’s gift of the sculpture Six Women in 1968 started the MCA’s collection. As a nod to our namesake, some of the items featured on the menu are inspired by the artist’s favorite dishes.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
