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 $18, you get a 10-punch card, good toward Turkish coffee, tea, and soda at Pyramid Cafe in Vancouver. Each punch is worth up to $4.
The cozy Pyramid Cafe specializes in authentic Turkish coffee and a range of teas and sodas to satisfy caffeine cravings. A single punch on the 10-punch card nets imbibers up to $4 worth of drinks, including a 20-ounce cup of Turkish coffee ($4), made from super-finely ground beans that impart steaming cups with thick texture and strong flavor. A 20-ounce chai latte ($3.50) mixes spiced tea and milk for a gentler, tastier buzz than high-octane battery acid. Italian soda ($3.75 for 20 ounces) tickles tongues with effervescent sweetness while placating fractious sweet teeth left bitter by too much black coffee. Sip a drink in the 1,700-square-foot café, complete with a second-story loft for quiet reading, relaxation, and reminding uppity gravity that there are ways around its stringent laws.
