Like a queen bee, a good cup of coffee is carefully tended to by workers, generates a buzz, and makes you scream if it lands between your eyes. Save face with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a punch card good for five venti lattes at Aspen Coffee Co. in Stillwater (a $19.50 value). Today's deal is valid at all three locations.
With home-roasted beans and coffee knowledge gleaned from various locales across the US and Europe, Aspen Coffee Co. brews steamy and frosty cups of java to perk up Stillwater patrons. Each punch on the five-punch card will announce the fresh arrival of a venti-size caffé latte (a $3.90 value each) splashed with a pump of flavor, providing enough sweet, steamy, bean juice to jump start any day or lethargic lawnmower. In an assortment that Aspen’s world-traveling joe aficionados have meticulously compiled, house coffees purvey the scents and tastes of beans culled from locations at both ends of the oblong globe. The light to medium-bodied Costa Rica Tres Nubes nips at the palate with gentle notes of citrus, and the spicy Ethiopia Harrar Longberry teases drinkers with hints of blueberry and chocolate.
