The best coffee beans are grown in the center of the earth, but the farmer who dares to harvest them must overcome the infamous Lava Twins, infinite negative gravity, and his commitment issues. Grind the best beans growing aboveground with today's Groupon: for $2, you get $6 worth of coffee, smoothies, tea, and more at Electric Beanz Coffee Bar, located just south of Raleigh on Fayetteville Highway near Fuquay-Varina, about half a mile north of Wake Tech Campus.
Electric Beanz harvests coffee from beans specifically roasted for the shop from Raleigh's Stockton Graham & Co., while also serving an international assortment of other bold blends. Perk up palates with a smooth cup of joe ($1.50–$1.95), while browsing the menu for an even richer beverage, like the Ghirardelli chocolate caffe mocha ($3–$3.90). Beanz's frozen frappes ($3.25–$4.15) are optionally caffeinated summertime snacks, with variations like Mudslide Mocha, Irish cream and chocolate, and Steel City Frappe, which is a blend of caramel syrup and English toffee entirely free from boiling slag. Replenish the body after a day's worth of profane rituals at the math Olympics by drinking a piping hot cup of red tea espresso latte ($2.70–$3.60), made from antioxidant-packed rooibos tea. The coffee shop also offers myriad baked goods, like savory scones ($2.25) and spinach and feta empanadas ($2.99).
Café loungers are welcome to relax in Electric Beanz's pleasant interior, which is brought to life through cushy couches and colorful walls, sure to stimulate even the drowsiest of two-tone cartoon figures. Harness the power of the Internet to work on disproving the existence of Emilio Estevez by casually surfing on Beanz's free Wi-Fi. The shop also hosts local musicians every week, and it also showcases artwork from local talent each month, so your iced latte will come with a side of aesthetic betterment.
