Coffee is not generally known for giving back to the community, particularly the coffee you toss into the faces of unsuspecting coworkers each morning. Today's Groupon starts your morning off on a more-philanthropic note: for $10, you get 10 regular-sized cups of specialty coffee and tea drinks at Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company in Fletcher Place. Redeem your Groupon for a 10-drink punch card and use it at your leisure over the next six months. You can use up to four cups of coffee per visit, in case you don't have time to sleep that week. Your weekly coffee circle will blush with envy as they admire your contentedly caffeinated countenance.
If your coffee could jazz up your morning routine and tie your laces at the same time, most people would consider it a very warm-hearted cup of joe indeed. Calvin Fletcher Coffee Company's coffee does it one better by giving back to the city of Indianapolis. All of the coffee shop's profits go to benefit organizations throughout the city, as well as the neighborhood's more-local needs. The coffee shop's altruism extends to the high quality of its organic, fair-trade coffees and organic teas—turning the entire process of drinking warm beverages into a barrage of win-win-win moments fit for a Manning.
Your punch card is good for any 10 12 oz. specialty beverages, including Calvin Fletcher's cappuccino, latte, mocha, chai-tea latte, and café au lait. Syrup and additional espresso shots are an additional $0.50 each. Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company opens its doors at 7 a.m. daily to hand-build custom cups of morning sunshine until they're warm enough to feel through your winter mittens.
NUVO has this to say about Calvin Fletcher's coffeehouse:
- …it turns out that all of the servers and baristas at the place have an interest in how you’re doing, what you’d like and how you ended up at the other end of their milk steamers. It’s like they’re actually excited to hang out there — the first important ingredient in that elusive but lucrative coffee shop counterculture. – Jennifer Litz, NUVO
- Calvin Fletcher's Coffee company is nearly perfect: great cofee [sic] (love the house blend)…But the best part is the people who run the place. Actual Fletcher Place residents who care about the community. – Troy, Google Maps
- Very nicely decorated and great hours. Perfect for that morning pick-me-up on the way to work. – Jugomugo, Urbanspoon
