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 with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, sandwiches, and desserts at Coffeeology in Greensboro.
Coffeeology handcrafts gourmet coffee drinks, breakfast fare, and baked goodies using fresh, seasonal ingredients and locally sourced baristas. Guests can show morning who's boss with a punch of locally roasted coffee ($1.75/16 oz.), sending yawns packing with a chaser of super-premium espresso ($1.25). A splash of toffee syrup—or one of 22 other all-natural flavorings ($0.50 each)—sweetens sips with real cane sugar as homemade cookies ($0.75 each) dunk-duel in hot lattés ($3.10/16 oz.). Spurned by frigid mocha frappés ($4/16 oz.), breakfast wraps smother tortillas in scrambled eggs, peppers, cheddar cheese, and a choice of bacon, sausage, or soy sausage ($3.95). Chew through a warm panini, such as the roast beef cheddar and apple, which are piled on sourdough bread and drizzled with a house specialty sour cream sauce ($6.75). Remaining calm, crisp, and collected, waffles ($5.35) flip onto diners' plates without ever batting a batter-based eye.
Located steps from the UNCG campus, Coffeeology operates as a studious and social destination for diners of all schedules and accepts all major credit cards. The café boasts free WiFi, laptop-friendly tables, and walls scrawled with brain-percolating coffee facts and geometry proofs. Visitors can sunbathe while hitting the books on an outdoor table or chat up the staff behind the counter, learning who makes the cannolis ($1.95), where the gelato comes from ($3.95/medium), and how a legal bill becomes a cartoon sensation.
