Like a queen bee, a good cup of coffee is carefully tended to by workers, generates a buzz, and makes you scream if it lands between your eyes. Save face with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee and café fare at Jammin Java. Choose from three locations in Branson and Fayetteville.
Jammin Java’s local baristas steep the grounds and leaves of varietal coffees and imported teas alongside a light, healthful café menu. Espresso shots ($1.75–$2.25) forge a direct line to caffeine, whereas a café de caramel ($2.65–$3.85) disguises buzzes with the baby CIA tactic of hiding things inside candy. Frozen blended drinks ($3.90–$5.10) pack perfect summery sips with sugary flavors, such as cookie-dough decadence or chocolate-covered berry blast. Customers can chomp a sandwich at any hour of the day with a locally made breakfast bagel ($4.75) flanking meat, egg, and veggies or a spinach wrap–enrobed Dixie chicken-salad wrap ($6.75) hiding its secret recipe along with rumors that it's not really a salad.
At each location, prominently displayed local artwork supports regional artists, just as discounts for using personal mugs and a free drink after 10 purchases support customers and hole punchers. Each store features comfortable seating and WiFi. The downtown Fayetteville location frequently features live entertainment for toe-tapping away a caffeine buzz.
Brewing their own line of beans and building sandwiches and salads behind the bar, the staff of Jammin Java relieves coffee cravings as well as hunger pangs. The espresso machine whirs to life as baristas steam milk to create lattes, cappuccinos, and puffy foam clouds shaped like manatees. Stop by in the morning for pastries. In the afternoons and evenings, you can munch on sandwiches stuffed with roast beef, hickory turkey, and fresh, crispy veggies.
