For centuries, the coffee bean and the vanilla bean waged war over trade routes to India until a strategic marriage gave birth to a shaky peace and an adorable vanilla latte. Celebrate delicious alliances with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get 10 16-ounce specialty coffee drinks (up to a $47.50 value) at Mojo’s, which has locations in Newton and North Newton.
Independently owned Mojo’s lifts eyeshades daily with direct-trade, organic P.T.’s Coffee, winner of the 2009 Macro Roaster of the Year award from Roast magazine. Bean drinkers can slurp and sip an array of beverages concocted by highly trained espresso machinists. Cloak stiff upper lips with the froth of a regular or flavored mocha ($3–$3.46) or cappuccino ($2.54–$2.77), which use Monin syrups and Ghiradelli chocolate to enhance espresso canvases. Coffee imbibers can also roast the midnight oil with Mojo’s I.V. Stat ($3.69–$3.92), a four-shot flavored latte useful for judging Monopoly tournaments and rousing hibernating bears. Though not covered by this Groupon, Mojo’s also whips up paninis, wraps, and quiches from behind their cherry-wood-hue counter.
