Three green leaves and a small, blooming bud rest upon the globe. It’s an appropriate logo for Wystone's World Teas, given that they carry more than 150 loose and whole-leaf teas from around the world. These are the ingredients the tea bar’s teatenders use to craft beverages ranging from Japanese green teas to tea-infused cocktails. Tea also spills over into the bar's menu of breakfast, lunch, and light-dinner fare, since many dishes––including breakfast burritos, paninis, and Greek pitzas––are accompanied by Kenyan tea-roasted red-bliss potatoes or tea-smoked chicken. The sweet notes of the beverage even flavor such desserts as the African Rooibos carrot cakes, which come topped with Caramel Rooibos–tea cream frosting.
Private and daily tea tastings give guests the chance to learn about the drink's preparation, origin, and three purest forms: dry leaf, infused leaf, and leaf that looks a little like Larry Bird. During these one-hour sessions, participants sip on five to seven different teas while snacking on chocolate, gelato, cheese, and fruit. Wystone also sells teapots and glassware in-store and online and gives back to the community by donating a portion of their profits to the local nonprofits they feature in their store on weekdays.
Brewing organic, fair-trade, and shade-grown beans, Kona Coffee proves its commitment to a well-balanced environment, economy, and suntan. Java jewels are sourced from poverty-stricken areas around the world, but each batch of the house's bean juice is prepared with at least 30% Hawaiian-collected Kona beans to maintain their signature taste. Sip a classic cappuccino ($2.35–$3.15) to start your day on a foamy foot, or enjoy a kona mocha ($3.15–$3.90), mint mocha ($3.15–$3.90), or caramel-apple latte ($3.15–$3.90) for a midday sweet treat. Kona's spicy and refreshing chai frappe ($3.90–$4.45) provides a tasty cool-down alternative to climbing into a freezer on a hot summer day, and fresh-fruit smoothies ($4.75, for protein powder add $0.85) make it easy to reach fruit-that-doesn't-require-teeth quotas. Barista-made beverages range between $2 and $5, and brew-it-yourself beans generally sell for $7 to $8 for half a pound and $12 to $14 for a full pound. Coffee connoisseurs or wannabeans can use this Groupon toward a bag of 100% Kona Fancy beans ($40/lb.).

Maiberry's inventive menu of craving-mollifying treats features organic frozen yogurt, raw juices, and more. The eatery's nonfat, rBST-free frozen yogurt, available in pomegranate, white-peach, mocha, and many other mouth-tickling flavors, is a chilly nosh that’s as smooth as a sweet-talking seal ($0.42/oz. at Denver and Fort Collins, $2.50+ at Boulder). Opt for glacée, a mouthwatering mix of classic shaved ice and italian gelato ($5.75), or all-natural fruit smoothies available in a slew of blended flavors to pamper tongues with a delightfully sacchariferous snack ($4.25 for a medium). Açaí bowls rich in antioxidants and proteins, as well as raw juices concocted from fresh produce and organic wheatgrass, serve as potent pick-me-ups, unlike strongmen wearing rubber gloves covered in grape jelly.
The sludgy brew and poor periodicals stashed in most auto-repair shops only remind you of all the things you could be doing instead, such as wading in a kiddie pool filled with strawberry jam. Revamp your ride in a work-friendly space with today's Groupon, offering a comprehensive tune-up at Lube and Latte for $30 (an $80 value).
