Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a gourmet-coffee sampler punch card at Broadway Coffeehouse (a $14.75 value). The punch card covers:
- One 8-ounce pour-over brewed coffee (a $2 value)
- One 3-ounce macchiato (a $2.25 value)
- One 6-ounce traditional cappuccino (a $2.50 value)
- One 12-ounce latte (a $3 value)
- One 20-ounce hand-brewed Chemex coffee (a $5 value)
The Broadway Coffeehouse warms mugs with hand-roasted Stumptown coffee and two sunlit stories filled with overstuffed furniture. Compress a cauldron's worth of flavors from Latin America, East Africa, and Indonesia into a 3-ounce macchiato of the Hair Bender house roast, or cultivate foam mustaches and monocles with a traditional cappuccino. The pour-over bar invites coffee connoisseurs to acquaint single-origin blends with a controlled cascade of hot water, thereby tailoring the strength of the resultant drink. Sippers can also imbibe a brew filtered through the svelte glass waist of a Chemex coffeemaker, then steep tongues in a latte's mix of energizing espresso and steamed milk, which is taken from cows only when they're livid at grass-hogging mowers.
South-facing windows and a fireplace bathe the coffeehouse's furnishings in organic light. While guardians stock up on caffeine and take advantage of the complimentary WiFi, children can frolic in the family room or play 20 questions with clouds on the outdoor terrace.
Dedicating themselves to the unique pleasures of a cup of freshly roasted, skillfully brewed joe, Broadway Coffeehouse's baristas stay local, using beans from renowned Portland roaster Stumptown Coffee and stacking the display case with pastries from Salem's Great Harvest Bread Co.
The Oregonian aromas of the specialty brews and warm desserts fill the spacious café, whose expansive windows and crackling fireplace bathe the cushy couches and armchairs in natural light. A second-floor skyway overlooks the main seating area, and youngsters frolic in a family area while older people talk business in private conference rooms. In the warmer months, guests sit outdoors under the shade of patio umbrellas, safe from the sun's periodic spills of scalding-hot coffee.
