Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today’s Groupon to Grounds and Pounds Coffee House. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of coffee, smoothies, pastries, and other café fare.
- For $10, you get a punch card for five coffee drinks (up to a $20.95 value).
Named after a pummeling strategy from the world of martial arts, Grounds and Pounds Coffee House awakens the senses with piping-hot espresso drinks that have earned the Independent’s praise. Friendly baristas handcraft each beverage on the menu, warming mugs with brewed coffee ($2 for a 16 oz.) and embroidering lattes with milk fluffier than a freshly laundered cloud ($3 for a 16 oz.). Sweet-toothed sippers can enhance cappuccinos ($3 for a 16 oz.) with up to eight syrup flavors, including vanilla, caramel, and hazelnut (+$0.50), or dive into a rich, chocolatey mocha topped with whipped cream ($4.25 for a 16 oz.). Teeming with black tea and indian spices, chai lattes ($3 for a 16 oz.) energize the body as they melt away stress. The shop also peddles edibles such as pastries, which keep bellies from growling, whining, or gnawing the shoes of passersby.
