Caffeine was first discovered by the ancient Egyptians who needed to stay awake while studying for their final exams in pyramid building, mummy embalming, and advanced asp application. Keep alert the ancient way with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of coffee, pastries, and other light café fare at Coffee in Motion's three Salem locations.
Coffee in Motion purveys eye-opening, organic wood-roasted coffee as well as a selection of bagels and pastries at its three locations. Energy seekers can opt for up to 44 ounces in hot or iced beverages such as lattes ($2.75–$6.65), mochas ($3–$7.50), Red Bull and Rockstar Energy Drink smoothies ($4.10–$8.35), and the All Nighter ($2.25–$5.75), which harbors alertness-inducing powers tested and approved by night watchmen and perkiness-deprived morning-news anchors. Fruit smoothies ($3.60–$7.40) supply a noncaffeinated alternative. Stop by the red double-decker bus that houses one of Coffee in Motion's locations to compile a breakfast bagel sandwich made up of any combination of egg, cheese, meat, tomato, and avocado ($3.95+). Locally made bagels and other pastries, including scones ($2.50) and fruit-filled danishes ($2.75), stand by to soak up excess caffeine.
Coffee in Motion
Coffee in Motion’s baristas brew cups of Millars organic, wood-roasted, fair-trade coffee beans to create gourmet drive-thru coffees and espressos. At the Mission Street location, a cherry-hued bus with upstairs seating serves caffeine-seeking patrons around the clock, as the café's extended schedule allows patrons to flout legally mandated naptimes. Along with coffee, the staff serves up a full menu of real fruit smoothies, fresh pastries, and toasted bagel sandwiches with a choice of toppings. For tea drinkers, locally brewed My Chai teas awaken sleepy patrons and incite their heart rates to soar like Amelia Earhart's pet falcon.
