What You'll Get
During WWII, American soldiers developed acute Javanitis disorder, characterzied by their inability to really wake up before their morning cup of coffee and raging moonlit parties. For $10, today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of fresh roasted coffee and unroasted pastries at Javatinis Coffee. There's no need to use this deal all at once; Javatinis will provide you with a voucher for any unused portion to be redeemed at any later date before the six month expiration.
Top notch Arabica beans arrive green at Javatinis, each pack mule still wet from its long journey over sea. With 11 blends of African, Latin American, and Asian beans, you can have a different cup of liquid alchemy for almost every day of week (12 oz. bags start at $11). Javatinis allows you to choose your roast level, picking from nine stages of increasingly deadly heat, with the final roast level applied by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The whole fresh roasting process takes less than 15 minutes, during which you can nibble on a huge Cornerstone muffin ($2.25) or scone ($2.25), or wait to dunk a croissant ($1.25) into your cup while using free WiFi. Find out how Javatinis baristas stay so effervescent by trying their titular drink creation–two espresso shots mixed with ice, vanilla, and cream, strained into a martini glass ($3.25). Keep it simple with a small coffee ($1.60) or latte ($2.95). For a potion less perking, look no further than their smoothies with crushed fresh fruit and green tea ($4.25).
Javatinis Coffee is currently in the top three in the vote for City Voter's Best Coffee Shop 2010, and City Voter users give the Santa Ana location a perfect five star rating, while Yelpers give both the Santa Ana and Laguna Hills locations 4.5 stars:
- Javatini's was the best espresso I've had in California. - Steve R., Yelp
- They roast your coffee to order! You go in, pick the type of coffee you want, and they roast it for you right there while you wait. Takes only minutes and is worth it to be going home with a warm bag of nice smelling [sic] beans at your side! - Jeff C., City Voter
- It turns out to be a coffee place that mixes up concoctions so ridiculously delicious, you might get hooked as though you were an alcoholic, but here it would be on blended coffee drinks. - Judi S., Yelp
