Automotive engineers once attempted to utilize coffee as a fuel source, but gave up once cars began demanding biscotti and flavored creamer with each fill-up. Fuel inner engines with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a punch card valid for six 16-ounce drinks and one entree at Brown's Coffee Café in Shoreline (up to a $41.20 value including tax).

Known for roasting 100% fair-trade coffees without pesticides or chemicals, Brown's Coffee Café is the bean company's first local coffee shop, serving fresh drip coffees and appetizing entrees. Under-caffeinated customers can select any 16-ounce beverage from Brown's java-juiced selection, including fresh drip coffee ($2.25), the americano ($2.65), and chocolate-saturated mochas ($4.25) that provide cocoa-bean nucleotides to bolster sweet-deficient rungs in genetic ladders.

To squelch outspoken bellies, Brown's breakfast and lunch menu of before-noon bites and predinner dishes helps fill the most spacious of inner food crevasses, with such selections as the red curry rice bowl ($9.95) and the El Gringo breakfast, a high-noon showdown among eggs, corn tortillas, stuffed poblano pepper, and black beans ($11.95) that was inspired by the classic Western True Grits & Eggs. This Groupon is valid for dine-in and carryout, making it perfect for any leisurely lunchers or parched patrons.

Brown's Coffee Café

The story of Brown's Coffee Café begins in Europe during World War II, where the wartime experiences of Virgil Brown, owner Neal Brown's father, motivated him to seek a peaceful, provincial life. In the 1960s, Virgil moved the family to the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia in search of this tranquil existence. But although the Brown clan found life on their 400-acre dairy farm fulfilling, the hard economic realities of dairy farming drove the family back to urban living.

Years later, when happenstance flung Neal into the world of coffee, his days on the farm filled him with sympathy for coffee farmers who harvested beans for menial wages, out of sight and out of mind for the coffee drinkers abroad enjoying the fruits of their labors. Neal therefore resolved that his shop would use only fair-trade beans that were free of chemicals and pesticides and capable of providing an honest wage to hard-working farmers. Eventually, like a popcorn kernel under an interrogation lamp, the café expanded, and it now includes a menu of chorizo burritos, cuban pulled-pork sandwiches, and other fare that represents the traditions of numerous nations, just as Neal's story does.
