Coffee is often called a miracle drug, not only because it cures numerous diseases, including ataxia and ear splints, but also because it has the amazing power to either wake you up or to help you relax. Wake up or unwind with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 gift card valid for fare and drinks at Chiasso's 17th Avenue location in Calgary. Chiasso focuses on coffee quality, sourcing ethically and fair-traded beans from specific farms and slow-roasting them in small batches for their espresso creations fashioned by well-trained baristas. Ever meticulous, whether dishing up their café fare like sandwiches ($7.95-8.95) or designing latte ($4.75 for a large) art, Chiasso makes lunch or coffee an experience, not just a quick fuel stop. The coffee-enthusiast baristas have been schooled in the art of pouring, sweetening, and achieving optimal temperature in all their coffee concoctions.

- The atmosphere was great with lots of seating, and it was shiny and new. A lovely place to sit and enjoy a coffee and a treat! – Maria B.
- This is a space I lounge in for a while. Long and narrow with wood accents and modern tiled wall accents, it's both comfy and sleek. The staff are sweet, bringing your coffee/tea out to you at a table. – Crystal H.
