Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairytale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, chocolate, and more at Flying Rhino Coffee & Chocolate.
Flying Rhino floods taste sensors with a sumptuous selection of fresh-roasted coffees, handmade chocolates, and natural fruit-smoothie purees. Flown in from all over the world, Flying Rhino's specialty coffees feature arabica beans that are grown in high-elevation areas, imbuing them with deep flavor and fearlessness of roller coasters. Roasted in-house, the bounty of brews includes the popular, rich, and velvety Rockin’ Rhino blend ($9.25/8 oz.), the nutty, chocolatey, and citrusy organic Bobolink ($7.25/8 oz.), the sweet, northern Italian-style Jungle Jive ($9/8 oz.), and more. Caffeinated-beverage sippers enjoy specialty drinks such as lattes, espresso, and chai tea. Flying Rhino also harnesses a variety of smooth and creamy chocolates from Guittard, a company that works directly with cacao-bean farms and disgruntled Wonka employees, to create a selection of high-quality, preservative- and wax- free chocolate made with fresh cream from a local dairy. Sink teeth into the gooey goodness of handmade chocolate salted caramels ($5/fourpack) or mellow in the mouth-melting flavors of lush aztec truffles ($1.75), coated with a chocolaty shell, stuffed with a rich, dark chocolate ganache, and tinged with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ancho chili powder ($1.75 each). Sandwiched between a cocoon of dark, milk, or white chocolate, turtles are infused with toasted pecans nesting amid a sweet bed of viscous caramel ($2.50 each), and handmade english toffee ($9.95/half-pound) makes for a satisfyingly crunchy, chocolaty treat for any Easter or Boxing Day-in-July celebration.
Flying Rhino guests who have sworn off caffeine, sweets, and all other things good and decent can still find slurpable solace in the wholesome nourishment of Dr. Smoothie sugar- and preservative-free, 100% whole-fruit purées. Smoothies ($4.35–$5) come in a cornucopia of flavors, such as peach pear apricot, pineapple paradise, and four berry. Aside from delivering sweet semisolid sustenance, Dr. Smoothie's purées can also be used as a base for dressings and sauces, or as fuel for a cassowary-powered lawnmower.
