Before coffee was invented, many unfortunate interns lost their jobs at the hands of grouchy bosses who complained that there wasn't enough coffee in their coffee. Appease your boss and please your taste buds with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet coffee, sandwiches, and treats at Bad Ass Coffee.
Named after the hardworking Hawaiian donkeys that transported juvenile java beans through the mountains, Bad Ass Coffee brews 100% Kona Coffee imported from the Big Island. In a meticulous process, Kona beans are roasted to ensure the rich flavors didn't ditch the flight and opt for the beach. Taste buds board a plane for the Hawaiian shores at the first touch of 100% Kona Coffee, a carefully roasted cup brimming with flavors ($3.50 for 16 oz.). Latte lovers choose from more than 15 signature varieties, such as the Kreme de Kona, a bubbling brew of white and dark chocolate splashed with vanilla ($3.70 for 16 oz.), or the sweet caramel base of the Snickerlicious, a hazelnut-and-chocolate concoction ($3.20 for 12 oz.). Coffee drinkers can chew on specialty sandwiches such as the chicken salad flanked by a side of chips ($4.50) or send their incisors into a huge assortment of danishes and pastries ($1.50–$2.50).
Bad Ass Coffee strives to import, alongside its coffee, the aloha spirit—a warm and laid-back welcome to all its customers. Palm trees and wooden walls reminiscent of the island state contribute to the festive café environs.
