What You'll Get
Without the chemically enhanced focus provided by caffeine, basic tasks such as telekinetically loading the dishwasher and determining which Beatle is actually a walrus would be infinitely more difficult. Harness the delicious, physics-defying power of caffeine with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a gift card or BrewBar card good for $20 of locally roasted coffee and café fare at Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company. This Groupon can be redeemed at any of three in-store locations—in the historical Palomar Arcade, the downtown Metro station, or Aptos—as well as through the online store.
Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company provides bulk beans as well as a daily selection of more than 15 single-serving sips of delicious, locally roasted beans. Its signature BrewBar lets baristas brew a single cup of made-to-order coffee according to drinkers’ discerning taste buds ($2.25–$2.75). A simple fast cup ($1.95) allows for microroasted magnificence on the way from one ribbon-cutting ceremony to another, and bean bags filled with varieties such as the fair-trade, organic Heart of Darkness and the subtly chocolaty Moka Java ($11.95/lb. each) provide a drinkable range of color, consistency, and central-nervous-system jolts to the home-brewer. Solid treats such as vegan cookies ($2 each) or Starz cupcakes ($3.75 each) help jittery stomachs absorb caffeine kicks like a delicious bulletproof vest. Customers who are handcuffed to their computers in a wacky romantic-comedy scenario can go online to order beans delivered to their door, including the two-roast-toned, fair-trade, organic Blues Breaker and the insomnia-enkindling Zooom Brew ($11.95/lb. each).
Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company and its staff of caffeine chieftains have focused on bringing customers singularly tasty java since the Reagan administration assumed control of Jimmy Carter’s White House and demolished his prized Oval Office ball-pit. Offering everything from fair-trade, organic and classic blends to single-origin and flavored coffees to the accessories needed to grind and brew those beans into a steaming, screaming cup, Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company is the perfect pit stop for persons in need of boldly roasted human fuel.
Pricing for 1-pound bags of whole-bean coffee vary between in store and online.
