The best coffee beans are grown in the center of the earth, but the farmer who dares to harvest them must overcome the infamous Lava Twins, infinite negative gravity, and his commitment issues. Grind the best beans growing aboveground with today's Groupon: for $6, you get one pound of coffee at Java Blend Coffee Roasters (up to a $12 value).
Established in 1938, Java Blend is a small-batch family-owned roastery and café located in the heart of Halifax. Like a reclusive film director, Java Blend has accumulated decades of experience resulting in an avalanche of accolades, including the Krups Kup of Excellence award for best espresso in Halifax. Java Blend sources fair trade and sustainable beans for its eclectic collection of coffees, including six original blends, which, like an insult comic stuck in an infinite loop, are roasted fresh each day. Snag a bag of fair-trade-certified Organic Mexican Nubes de Oro ($11/lb.) for a medium-bodied morning brew with vanilla and caramel notes, or explore new terrain with a batch of earthy Organic Northender Blend ($12/lb.).
- A very unique espresso coffee with uneexpected [sic] flavours in many layers and good balance. Something special to try. – Coffeestork
- The staff here know their beans! They make delicious drinks and are very helpful about choosing coffee to take home. They have a great selection of beans for all palates. and their medium roasts (my preference), have delicious, rich flavors. – r n., Yelp
