Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairy-tale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss for a good cause with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get a punch card for 20 coffees from CoffeePledge Against Cancer (up to a $39.80 value). The card can be redeemed for 12-ounce cups of Coffee Week brew at one of the following area locations:
- Fair Trade Café on North Central Ave.
- Fair Trade Café on North 1st Avenue
- Press Coffee Roasters in CityNorth
- Press Coffee Roasters in Scottsdale
The CoffeePledge Against Cancer's CoffeeWeek, running September 5–11, pours out coffee for inspiration and fuel during a week of anticancer fundraising. Social media spurs coffee pledgers along on their journey, coordinating tweets, pics, check-ins, and donations on interactive digital displays manned by the many-tentacled CoffeeWeek HQ. Portions of all Phoenix proceeds during the week fly directly to cancer treatments at the Phoenix Children's Hospital, powering the struggle against the disease.
Anticancer java-sippers can redeem their cup card at one of four Phoenix-area locations and caffeinate on the go or in each shop's distinctive atmosphere. Cozy up at either Fair Trade Café location, where you can stock up on pictures of kittens in tutus and take advantage of the cafés free WiFi while inhaling the robust aroma of coffee. As imbibers treat taste buds, eyes can feast on artwork, including a monthly rotating gallery crowding the walls. Meanwhile, the minimalist Press Coffee Roasters in Scottsdale focuses working minds with sleek ivory walls, ebony tables and chairs, and enough open air to let brain-children grow and do battle. Press Coffee Roasters at CityNorth slings its brew under organic light fixtures and warm woods while promoting canine-enhanced caffeination with a dog-friendly patio.
