Coffee makes people crave baked goods, just as baked goods make people crave justice. Take a bite out of sweet, crumbly crime with this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Café Food and Drinks After 4 p.m.
During dinner hours, cooks assemble Italian-style paninis ($9), layering the Josephine with smoked turkey and gorgonzola, and stacking the Santorini with roasted eggplant, gournay cheese, and sundried-tomato tapenade. They also encrust chicken with chopped almonds ($13) and partner seared Atlantic salmon with corn succotash. See the food menu, drink menu, and dessert menu for more options. This Groupon is valid only after 4 p.m.
Since water is the main ingredient in coffee, the baristas at Caffe Moderne inspect it just as carefully as their arabica beans. According to city measurements, Wichita’s tap water exceeds the average hardness level by 600%–700%, making it unsuitable for brewing coffee. To counteract this, Caffe Moderne filters its water through reverse-osmosis taps that normalize mineral content. Each time baristas change a filter, they reassess and adjust the system to ensure that soft water flows steadily. They merge this water with a secret blend of three beans, which are grown at high altitudes in Costa Rica and Ethiopia.
To complement Caffe Moderne’s suite of coffee beverages, cooks prepare savory dishes that draw on the culinary traditions of France and Italy. Cooks follow classic preparation methods when stuffing the crepe Florentine with spinach and provolone and add contemporary flair when garnishing the penne ratatouille with a jean jacket. Meanwhile, dessert artisans prepare fresh batches of sorbetto and gelato, which earned the endorsement of AirTran Magazine.
