Although modern scholars agree that the most effective energizing elixir is a poultice of rare black orchids and Cher's tears, the mixture is rarely used because so few people own a mortar and pestle. Boost energy by consuming commonplace caffeine with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of coffee, sandwiches, and more at Arabica at Cobblestone in Elyria.
Arabica prevails as a place for residents of Elyria to come together over good coffee, delicious edibles, and live entertainment. Intent on perfecting their patrons’ palates, Arabica rotates its coffee on a weekly schedule and showcases stalwart roasts such as Colombian, Mexican, and Nairobi, as well as exotic flavor blends, including hylander cream, caramel nut fudge, and decaf chocolate turtle. Arabica serves up four unique coffees brewed from fair-trade beans every day, alongside teas and smoothies. Arabica’s kitchen can also satisfy hungry and highly caffeinated mobs with a chicken caesar wrap, an asiago roast-beef panini ($6.49 each), or anything else from the menu with unparalleled speed and fury incited by hours spent inhaling coffee vapors.
Decorated in warm woody tones, Arabica broadcasts free WiFi and keeps a collection of games and cards to entertain its sipping and nibbling clientele. Arabica also features regular live music and open-mic nights, and the café is available to host meetings, parties, or coffee-bean decoupage classes. Redeem this Groupon for a $20 Arabica at Cobblestone gift card, which can be used on multiple visits.
- Coffee beans aren’t ground until the drink is ordered, and Arabica doesn’t use beans more than a week after they’ve been roasted. – Pulse
- The atmosphere is inviting with great music playing quietly in the background. They have cafe tables and chairs, and leather furniture by an inviting hearth. – Jackie Stang, Urbanspoon
