The best coffee beans are grown in the center of the earth, but the farmer who dares to harvest them must overcome the infamous Lava Twins, infinite negative gravity, and his commitment issues. Grind the best beans growing aboveground with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of coffee and pastries at Cartel Coffee Lab, formerly known as Avenue Coffee, located on the corner of Campbell Avenue and Water Street. For those concerned about the effects of drinking $20 worth of espresso shots in one sitting, Cartel Coffee Lab will exchange Groupons for value-retaining gift cards upon your first visit.
Avenue Coffee's certified baristas serve responsible coffee with a level of dedication that shows from the drink selection to their latte art. These bean shamans heat their espresso ($1.75) to 202 ¬¬ºF to achieve quality taste with none of the bitterness that characterizes coffees who never got a reply on their screenplay treatment. Offer a date a choice between a white- or dark-chocolate mocha ($3.25–$4.25) to determine their allegiance to the dark side. Delicious baked goods such as muffins ($2.25) and bear claws ($2.75) arrive fresh daily, but it's always an option to adopt a pastry orphaned from the previous day ($1.25) as well.
Avenue Coffee's skilled baristas acquire and serve responsible, locally roasted coffee to ensure peace of mind in every cup. These highly trained coffee connoisseurs will recommend the perfect drink to perk up stressed students, blocked creatives, and regular customers. Avenue Coffee also provides free WiFi, local music, and comfy leather couches for an enjoyable sip and stay.
