Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairy-tale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss with today’s Groupon to Bob's Coffee Shop in LaPorte. Choose between the following options:
• For $29, you get a one-hour espresso-making class plus a 1-pound take-home sample of coffee (a $65 value).
• For $5, you get $10 worth of specialty coffee beverages.
Renovated from a vintage service station, Bob's Coffee Shop beckons patrons to its nostalgic confines with aromas of locally roasted, organic coffee and informatively tasty sessions on espresso brewing. Java scholars tote along their own espresso makers to the one-hour session, where they will learn how to make coffee-shop-quality beverages and study the nuances of their machines, from the functions of the levers to which buttons play "Rock Around the Clock" when pushed correctly. Patrons in the market for an espresso machine to call their own can arrive empty-handed and undercaffeinated for expert advice on the ideal purchase. All other supplies are included, and students receive 1 pound of Bob's coffee at the end of the class to take home or gift to pet sloths.
Customers hankering for immediate sips can snag a sweet buzz from the shop's liquid offerings, such as a cappuccino ($3.25–$4.15) or a white-chocolate mocha ($3.95–$4.60). The chai tea ($3.25–$4.25) packs a caffeinated punch with aromatic spices, and the Red Eye ($3.65–$4.25) keeps all-night travelers and exam-cramming raccoons awake with a shot of espresso in house-brewed coffee. Bob's offers free WiFi and live music every Tuesday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. during special car and bike nights.
