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 above ground with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a coffee tasting box from Liga Masiva, redeemable online (a $49 value).
The java gurus at Liga Masiva dispense artisan-roasted, 100% certified-organic coffee traded directly from farmers in the Dominican Republic. The tasting box consists of three unique bean types: dark, light, and "best of both worlds," each roasted fresh to order and stored in an 8-ounce bag, as well as a $10 voucher toward a monthly coffee membership. Liga Masiva's flavor-potent joe seeds are cultivated high in the mountains of Jarabacoa, in the Dominican Republic, and are completely free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and pointy forest-gnome hats.
Acting as a global farmers' market, Liga Masiva ensures a fair deal for its harvesters by purchasing their beans directly without going through money-grubbing middlemen or dollar-eating vending machines, which allows Liga Masiva's growers to make 200% of what they would normally earn.
