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 aboveground with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of locally roasted Peregrine Coffee. This Groupon should be redeemed online and must be used in one order.
Peregrine Coffee is a high-end, Philadelphia-based micro-roaster supplying sophisticated sippers with freshly roasted whole beans from around the world. Specializing in single-origin coffee beans from small farms, Peregrine roasts to order and ships via priority mail within hours of completion to ensure that caffeine connoisseurs obtain the freshest java possible. The beans are packaged in 8.8-ounce bags (an average weekly supply) and dated to remind absentminded caffeinators to drink up within the 10-day freshness window, or else they risk watching the beans grow into full-sized gremlins.
However picky the palate, Peregrine's free tasting program helps customers find the best brew. Call or sign up online to schedule a stop by the roast shop to determine the best course of action for your neglected taste buds, or throw caution to the wind and fill the chamber of your flavor-revolver with a random selection from the online store. Let your tongue take a smooth, flavorful dip in Kona Captain's Ohana Farm ($18), a fruity Hawaiian brew with notes of chocolate, or savor a bag of Monsooned Malabar ($15), a darker, bittersweet roast from India featuring leathery, tobacco-tinged notes reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes' chifforobe. Groupon purchasers can also apply the value of this deal toward Peregrine's Monthly Coffee Club ($130), a dashing, six-month world tour of the roaster's choice seasonal beans, paying the remainder out of pocket.
Although customers of Peregrine Coffee have yet to write many reviews of their coffee experiences, the company has generated a substantial amount of press. Peregrine Coffee has been featured by Good Morning America NOW, Philadelphia magazine, Brides magazine and the Northeast Times, among many others. Peregrine was also named one of the Sweetest Things of 2008 by DailyCandy:
- We sipped and sampled, then ordered our favorite batch. Which he will now deliver, fresh roasted, every week, month, or as we need it. The coffee was good. Real good. – DailyCandy
