If coffee ever hit it big and became a household beverage, Americans would be able to work a superhuman eight or nine hours a day before returning home for supper. Today's deal eco-consciously introduces coffee-bean-infused water to the sleepy masses. For $10, you get one pound of freshly roasted coffee beans (up to a $15.54 value) and one large drip coffee or hot or cold medium espresso drink (up to $4.55 value) at Dunn Bros Coffee on Church Street, an up to $22 total value after tax. Dunn Bros is Nashville Scene's pick for Best Big-City Coffee Shop. You'll also receive half off 1 lb. of beans, one additional drink, or one food purchase made during the same visit.
Dunn Bros Coffee roasts all of its beans on the premises in small-drum roasters to ensure peak freshness and optimum aroma. The coffeehouse's globally sourced beans hail from sustainable farms far and wide, and today's Groupon lets you pick up one pound of your choice for at-home caffeination, plus one large drip coffee for immediate sipping. The friendly and java-obsessed baristas distill Dunn's delicious gems of top-grade, defect-free Arabica beans into a comprehensive menu of beverages for customers seeking a jump-start or just a cozy, steamy come-down from a rough day. Get half off 1 lb. of beans, one additional drink, or one food item purchased during the same visit, including satisfying 16 oz. versions of a caramel-mocha latte ($4.10), smooth cappuccino ($2.50), or chocolate-steamed nirvana ($4.10). Springier palates may opt instead for the 16 oz. cool temperature of a vanilla-iced nirvana ($3.15) or Rueben panini ($4.85).
A smattering of sweet pastries and baked goods provides delicious brew-dippers alongside more savory offerings of sandwiches and other filling edibles. Free WiFi, local artwork and music, and cozy seating, including an outdoor patio for dining au naturel (as the Italians say), make Dunn Bros Coffee a truly peaceful location to finally finish your Three's Company spec script or discover that your Match.com date's photos were all lightly Photoshopped images of Johnny Depp.
- Want some tasty coffee in an urbane, yet quirky, space?...Affable husband-and-wife team Kevan and Fawn Ker have staffed the place with the friendliest of baristas and appointed the room with cushioned chairs, wood tables, striking local art and a small live-music stage. There's an intriguing micro-roaster at the main entrance that's worth a look, as well as a selection of pastries, breakfast sandwiches, deli sandwiches, soups, cookies, teas and coffees worth a taste. – Nashville Scene
