Human beings without coffee go to desperate lengths to acquire energy, stealing batteries from remote controls and nibbling on hummingbirds' wings. Energize more easily with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a five-drink punch card—good for any five drinks valued up to $5 each—at Condesa Coffee in the Old Fourth Ward (up to a $25 value).
Grainy wood surfaces mingle with clean brushed metals at Condesa Coffee, forming a warmly urban setting in which steamy drinks can confidently let their direct-trade aromas out to play. Highly trained baristas fill cups with Intelligentsia-roasted espresso and coffee drinks, whose beans are grown by individual farmers throughout the world, roasted in Chicago, and raised to always eat their spinach. Lattes ($3.50–$4; $0.50/flavor shot) and macchiatos ($3) mix steamed milk with Intelligentsia's Black Cat espresso—a blend of single-origin beans—and even classic cups of joe get special attention as baristas utilize a manual pour-over method to reap the best flavors ($3–$3.75). Tea is also available to claim manifest destiny over mugs, with options such as the Blend 333 tea ($2.75), which unleashes waves of peppermint, chamomile, and rose hips as patrons enjoy views of the Atlanta skyline. Customers may use up to two punches per visit, and additional shots of espresso are an extra cost.
