What You'll Get
Slow-roast your caffeine craving with this Groupon: $10 for a $20 gift card good for coffee and pastries at any of Philz Coffee's four SF locations. Philz Coffee specializes in customized blends of the highest-quality beans from around the world. A cup of its coffee costs $2.75–$3.50, so this Groupon could caffeinate you for almost an entire week. Plus, each Philz location stocks fresh and flavorful pastries to jive with the java in a beautiful dance of morning-taste known as the face-Charleston.
When you walk into a Philz, you'll see a formidable menu of custom coffee combinations unlike any you've ever dreamed of. Let the barista know it's your first time, and he or she will help you choose a smooth and supple blend of beans. Each custom combination contains anywhere from two to seven types of beans from across the globe, each with its own unique flavor. A cup of Philz Coffee is made with three times as many beans as an ordinary cup—that means you'll be three times less likely to fall asleep over an important report, a steering wheel, or a bagel slicer (Philz can brew you a weaker cup if you'd like).
If you’re used to the usual lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, and mochachinos, Philz will make you something similar, and the staff guarantees you'll like their version better. If you don't, they will make you another one that's even better than the first one they made. If you continue to demand an even better jamocha, Philz will continue to supply increasingly superior blends until, after 5.8 to 12 cups, you are either totally satisfied or entering the deep and wonderful coffee torpor of the ancient Babylonians (a "totally satisfied" state). Philz's also offers a variety of single-origin beans.
Phils’ Most Common Dreams
The coffee wizards at Philz can dream up coffee combos you’d never dream up. According to the scientific journal Dream Inquiries, here are the three most common dreams of people named Phil:
- You’re in your high school Social Studies classroom, but you are unable to speak. Just then, Van Halen shows up with all their guitars and equipment but you wake up right before they play.
- A 100-foot tall statue in your honor is being unveiled in Town Square. Your ex is there and begs to be taken back. You demur, because you’ve got a good chance of dating Kathy Ireland. Van Halen is about to play “Eruption” in your honor, but you wake up right before they play.
- You’re backstage at the Van Halen concert. Eddie, Alex, Michael, and David Lee Roth are all there, and so is Kathy Ireland. The boys tell you that they need you to play with them at their big show tonight. You get onstage and Kathy Ireland whispers, “I love you.” Alex begins the opening drums to “Hot For Teacher,” but you wake up before the guitar kicks in. On your pillow, you find a mysterious guitar pick.
