Ever since America lost custody of tea in its messy divorce with England, we've had to find new liquid sources of caffeine and new neighborhood taxmen. Say no to taxation without caffeination with today's deal: for $10, you get a gift card worth $22 to High Grounds Coffee Roasters. Head into its location on Eastern Avenue to exchange your Groupon for a fully loaded gift card.
Only fair-trade, shade-grown organic coffee is roasted in-house at High Grounds, where a brand-new roaster transforms beans into liquid treats using dark magic. Percolate each morning with a two-shot latte ($3.66), or buzz through the day with a regular drip coffee ($1.54). Adding to the aromatic drinks is the pungent scent of free high-speed WiFi, which permeates the air and creates the ideal atmosphere for studying or grabbing a latte before work. As a testament to its quality, High Grounds' house-roasted coffee can also be found out of house in retail outlets such as Whole Foods.
