Get caffeinated for a cause with today’s side deal: $10 gets you a two-pound bag of Ugandan Bugisu whole-bean, family-farmed coffee from Crop to Cup and one free drip or espresso coffee every day for the month of October at @Spot Café. The bag of coffee is a $24 value alone, and with your daily complimentary cup of iced coffee, flavored coffee, or espresso, the value of today's deal can be tens of dollars more.
Crop to Cup Coffee Company works directly with African farmers, connecting them with consumers through technology. A percentage of its profits goes toward hiring doctors, funding community projects, and supporting education. You can even trace your cup on its site and find out who’s behind your beans; you’ll learn about the farmers and their families, the region where the beans are grown, and see exactly where your money is going.
Choose between the French or medium roasts of the Bugisu whole-bean coffee, and your friendly barista will grind it for you in the store, free of charge. Since you’ll be stopping in daily for your comped cup of joe, you might as well take advantage of the café’s free WiFi and linger in the large, cozy seating areas. There’s also a weekend brunch and a decent selection of paninis, salads, and breakfast foods, should you decide to splurge.
- It rates right up there with the quality of Starbucks, Illy, and Dean & Deluca. Costs about the same, but do you get the same satisfaction of helping a family in Uganda with them as you do here? I think not! – carolynne r., about Crop to Cup
- Super friendly service (honestly, the best coffee service I've had in ages); great-tasting coffee, a sign letting me know you could do BYOB here at night... – Jen G., about @Spot Café
- Far superior to surrounding take-out lunch options. Great paninis, bagels, coffee, etc. The atmosphere is great and the food is 4/5. – Blanket J., about @Spot Café
