Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon to Klatch Coffee's Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas, and Ontario locations. Choose between the following two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of coffee, tea, sandwiches, and more.
- For $99, you get a three-hour Latte Art Class (a $245 value). Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Friday in April and May at the roasters' Upland location.
Named 2009 Micro Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine, Klatch Coffee's casual coffeterias celebrate some of the world's highest quality coffee, carefully sourced to international farmers under direct trade ethics. Roasted in small batches for maximum freshness and minimum inter-bean squabbling, Klatch's java pleases patrons with a drip coffee of the day ($1.95–$2.20), as well as designer drinks such as the Mexican mocha ($3.40–$4.30), infused with spicy Ibarra chocolate. Discerning slurpers can also sate barking bellies with a hammy, cheesy eggel sandwich ($3.99) from the breakfast menu, or train teeth on heartier lunch fare such as a cranberry walnut salad ($3.75) or turkey pesto panini ($5.95).
In this Groupon's second option, budding baristas activate latent lactose artistry at Klatch's latte art class, which guides pupils in the second foamiest artistic medium after soap-beard husbandry. Under the tutelage of Klatch-certified trainers, participants perfect the techniques for streaming milk and consistently free-pouring alabaster images of hearts and rosettas.
