Without coffee, most people would never get out of bed, consequently missing out on passing trends such as cryogenically preserving scraps from good meals. Make sure you won't miss out on future-proofing a turkey leg with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get one large drip coffee a day for two weeks or 2 pounds of coffee beans at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters in Pasadena (up to a $30 value). Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters imports high-quality coffee beans from around the world and roasts each in small batches. All beans are stored in original burlap bags and are kept away from outside influences and sticky-handed children, and each roasting technique depends on the coffee’s origins, whether it's from Colombia, Guatemala, or Brazil.
