Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairy-tale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get one pound of specialty coffee from Papa Dukes Coffee (a $17.95 value including shipping).
At Papa Dukes Coffee, ethical agricultural partnerships and local roasting practices blend together to create a diverse selection of beans, hand-harvested with compassionate coffee lovers in mind. Grown on a family-owned plantation in Brazil’s Mantiqueira Mountains, each balanced variety of 100% arabica coffee beans derives its full-bodied sweetness from a natural harvesting cycle that involves stripping the beans by hand, drying them in the sun, and dressing them in tiny suits of 100% cotton. Customers can place an online order for whole or ground beans in a range of sizes and roasts. The traditional blend fills mugs with a smooth, full-bodied joe that combines bean sizes from differing altitudes, and jumbo varieties offer up only the largest beans for home brewing or for use as deliciously aromatic paper weights.
Mini beans await to fill the grinder or percolator of caffeine hounds who always root for the underdog, and the premium blend culls beans of every shape and size that have been handpicked for perfection.
