Travel to a caffeinated new world where you’ll encounter international coffee blends and teas that bloom into beautiful flowers. For $15, today's Groupon gets you $35 worth of gourmet coffee, teas, or gifts at Joe’s Coffee House, an online store devoted to the consumption and appreciation of breakfast-beverage staples. Plus, Joe's is offering free ground shipping to Groupon purchasers (extra cost for expedited shipping).
Let Joe’s be your perky pilot to foreign flavor. Try the Bolivia Colonial Carnavari, an organic blend of sweet cocoa tones derived from trees of the classic typica variety of arabica and priced at $14.95 for a pound (whole bean or ground). Fill your travel mug with far-away finds from Hawaii, India, Jamaica, or El Salvador. Blends typically average $20 per pound, with exceptions for the more exquisite varieties, including The Kopi Luwak ($350 per pound), a coffee bean that has passed through the digestive tract of the Asian Palm Civet and featured in the 2007 mega-blockbuster film The Bucket List.
There’s also a stunning selection of Mighty Leaf Tea, silky handcrafted pouches teeming with herbal and fruity flavors. Get the variety pack ($10.95) if you’re indecisive, or choose among tasty flavors such as African nectar, chamomile citrus, green tea tropical, and organic breakfast (15 pouches for $9.95), or a 12-oz. bag of chai ($9.95).
Joe's is perfect when you're shopping for a useful present for a bridal shower, baby shower, or NFC-offensive-player-of-the-week shower. Joe’s has an assortment of coffee and tea accessories, such as pots, presses, and grinders.
Ordering your coffee online means you can meditate over the best brew without getting heckled by under-caffeinated customers standing behind you in the morning line. Travel beyond the Beantown boundaries with a more cultural cup, or just refresh your latte’s flaccid foamage at home with your very own frother.

- It was roasted that day and served that evening. You can’t get any fresher then that! – Lea Park

Line-Waiters You Wouldn’t Want to Wait In Line With
Ordering coffee and teas by mail is a great way to avoid annoying customers while standing in line at the local coffee shop. These line-waiters can be especially annoying if they’re reciting Hamlet’s famous soliloquy in which he laments his lack of tea and his haunting by ghosts:
- Oh, spirit of thirst, what cruel fate to deny my quenchment. The loosest of leaves melded unto searing waters could salvage my parched viscera, having been made so by uncaring providence. Would but I had just a sip to ease my disquieted introspections, each impression of my tortured sentience haunted by mistakes and specters. Would you mind if I cut in line? I’m so thirsty and complainy.
