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 $25, you get a punch card for 50 cups of fresh dip coffee at Coffee Connection (up to a $127.50 value).
Coffee Connection's baristas pour cupfuls of fresh drip coffee and, though not included with this Groupon, espresso drinks including piping-hot Americanos, jolts of espresso subdued with hot water that keeps the brew’s rippling muscles from bursting through the seams of the cups' insulation sleeves. Three distinct seating areas sculpt the Coffee Connection experience. The main lobby bustles with activity, and the lounge channels a cozy living-room vibe. A study hall offers a hushed environment to imbibe libations until the shop’s midnight closing time, and outdoor patio seating provides ample opportunity for tossing food scraps at hungry fire hydrants. The homey atmosphere is bolstered by local artwork lining the walls and indie-rock music piped in through the shop’s sound system.
The staff at Coffee Connection understands that few of its clients seek a coffeehouse atmosphere just for the drip selection. Instead, it follows its “not just a place to sit and sip” mantra by separating the shop into a lounge, study hall, main lobby, and two outdoor patios. No matter their location of choice, patrons sip coffee while gazing at pieces by local artists and surfing the Web on one of two full-enterprise WiFi connections.
