Writing the next great American novel takes commitment, courage, and the ability to seamlessly splice together passages from Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick. Start your next project in the ideal café setting with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of locally roasted coffee and snacks at Edge Coffee, located in Beaverton.
Edge Coffee's staff of bean-loving baristas brews fresh, locally roasted Sisters Coffee and prepares fare for the undercaffeinated and underfed. Espresso enthusiasts can partake in a piping-hot cup of Edge's fresh-brewed Sisters Coffee ($1.75–$2.15), enjoy a chocolate-infused mocha ($3.15–$4.20), or sip on an americano ($2.00–$3.00), giving patrons a much-needed pep while keeping brain cells awake for all-night staring contests with a Christopher Lloyd wax figure. Edge's sandwiches quiet rumbling bellies, with options including the salami-, prosciutto-, and pepperoni-smothered Grinder ($5.50 a la carte), with an optional sack-lunch upgrade ($1.45–$1.50) of a bag of chips and a cookie to squelch loud, foul-mouthed tummies. Edge also offers a conference room, good for private meetings.
Edge Coffee isn't just community-oriented, it is also a reflection of the community. That's because they source most of their ingredients locally, whether it is their coffee beans from local roaster Sisters Coffee or their pastries and bread from Marsee's and La Provence. These ingredients form the basis of their menu, with staff grinding, blending, and pouring coffee into classic drinks or lattes made with premium Monin syrups. Atop their breads, they create breakfast staples such as bagel- and english-muffin sandwiches or their signature boxed lunch specials served with a juicy kosher pickle and locally made kettle chips. Even their drinks have Oregon connections, with fresh smoothies incorporating Oregon strawberries alongside unique add-ins such as protein powder or a splash of energy-boosting Rockstar. They also serve beer from Oregon, such as the Overcast Espresso Stout, which fuses the flavors of beer, chocolate, and coffee.
