Without coffee, society would literally crumble under the weight of unsound buildings erected by dozing construction workers and unfocused architects. Help support the fragile social fabric with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of breakfast sandwiches, coffee, microbrews, and more at Baristadors Coffee. This deal is not valid between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Baristadors handcrafts coffee drinks, microbrews, bagel sandwiches, and more, whisking them to visitors' taste buds seven days a week. Take in the egg-and-cheese Hen on a Kettleman bagel ($3.95), or top a scuffin—the love child of a scone and a muffin—with peanut butter, homemade jam, and a college scholarship ($2.95). A cup of freshly brewed Stumptown coffee keeps eyes open through soporific conference calls ($2 for 16 oz.), and a Speed Racer—iced coffee with chocolate, caramel, and two shots of espresso—helps sippers scale shopping-mall escalators in a single bound ($4 for 18 oz.). Diners can also spike a scoop of Prince Pückler's ice cream ($2.50) with a splash of espresso ($0.50) or break the world krumping record after downing a 24-ounce Black Bull shake made of espresso ice cream, coffee-bean shavings, and a double shot ($6.50).
Not to be upstaged by the racy latte-art portraits, Baristadors’ bartenders wow mouths with elixirs from the owners' microbrewery. Beer pioneers can discover Chef Tucker’s tasty pale ale ($2.50/small) or wrestle a dry-hopped IPA from a gang of feral Easter bunnies ($3/small). Meanwhile, the Baristador Bomber pairs two 8-ounce espresso porters with two shot glasses of espresso, inviting visitors to guzzle with a friend or the mysterious stranger with the foam mustache ($6.50).
