What You'll Get
Without coffee, society would literally crumble under the weight of unsound buildings erected by dozing construction workers and unfocused architects. Today's Groupon helps buttress the fragile social fabric: for $5, you get $10 worth of premium coffee, tea, and more at Primavera Coffee Roasters in Cahaba Heights.
The comfy java haven boasts painstakingly selected, high-quality coffee that is hand-roasted daily to sate the discerning palates of caffeinated, neighborhood libation enthusiasts. Ask a well-versed staff member for suggestions or peruse the percolating menu at your own leisure, alighting upon such organically laden goodies as the classically frothy cappuccino ($3) or the macchiato ($2.50), a tasty amalgamation of steamed milk and espresso. The mocha ($3.50–$4) envelops your taste buds in all its mahogany loveliness, whereas the chai ($3.50–$4), coffee's exotic half cousin, is steeped in black tea and sweet spices. Request your beverage chilled for sweltering days or when you're smuggling a diminutive ice sculpture in your mouth. Bask in drinkable irony with a 12-ounce take-home container of decaf espresso ($11.99), ideal for sipping on the front porch or imbibing during laidback concentration parties.
In addition to its shop offerings, the tree-bean juice emporium lends its Peru Norte roast to Good People Brewing Company's Coffee Oatmeal stout and holds weekly traditional coffee cuppings, or tastings, every Saturday at 2 p.m. for those hankering for more joe knowledge.
- As the charming barista began to prepare my drink, I just absorbed the environment. I felt like I had walked into my version of heaven. – EatBHM
- He pulled a couple of shots for us, and they were among the best we'd ever had. I have a huge amount of respect for Primavera's coffee, and I will definitely make them my go-to brand! – Heather M., Yelp, 7/1/10
