Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairy-tale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss with this Groupon.
$10 for Five-Drink Punch Card (Up to $27.85 Value)
The shop serves three coffees every day, each crafted from house-roasted beans: a dark roast, a decaf roast, and a rotating roast. The menu also includes specialty drinks such as chai lattes, caramel mochas, and frozen lemonade. Each punch is valid for drink sizes up to large ($5.57).
Great Lakes Chocolate & Coffee Co.
Before Paul and Jared Smith came onboard, the company that became Great Lakes Chocolate & Coffee Co. had no coffee to speak of: it only sold chocolate by the bag, box, or individual morsel. But the brothers recognized how well their rich chocolates complemented a hot cup of joe, and by 2004 they started roasting their own beans. Today, those yield coffees such as the Black & Tan, a combination of dark and light roasts, and the Honduran High Grown, which is harvested on the wings of airplanes.
The coffees add a jolt to Great Lakes’ hot drinks, including seasonal selections such as the egg nog latte. Organic and decaf teas, as well as cold beverages such as frozen lemonade and fruit smoothies, round out the shop’s drinkable options, all of which complement this family owned and run business’ stock of sweet treats.
