Like a queen bee, a good cup of coffee is carefully tended to by workers, generates a buzz, and makes you scream if it lands between your eyes. Save face with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of coffee, tea, and wine at Sarasota Bay Roasting Company in Sarasota.
Sarasota Bay Roasting Company's knowledgeable staff curate a gallery of savory sips including house-roasted coffees, loose-leaf teas, and specialty wines. Crafted in small, Ambex roaster batches before customers' eyes, custom bags of joe ($10.99+ for 12 oz.) keep drinkers alert during nights spent balancing checkbooks or days spent mowing bankers’ lawns for lower interest rates. Slather tongues in Costa Rican tarrazu, full-bodied, bold and sans the bitter bite, or let the Mexican high grown's intricate flavors jolt awake snooze-happy central nervous systems. Iced coffee options abound, which utilize a 16 hour cooling process to prevent bitterness. An assortment of organic fair-trade loose-leaf teas ($2.50+/ounce) coat mouths in fruits and florals including blooming-black-peony, blueberry-cheesecake, and banana-dulce-tisane. Sarasota Bay Roasting Company’s cellars house dozens of wine varieties, including specialty vintages ($9.99+). Wine sages stay on hand to help pair customers with fermented soul mates, and a taste testing ensures tongues know a merlot from a cabernet and a wine glass from a cleverly disguised bowl of chili.
Sarasota Bay Roasting Company's cool-hued interior sheathes tipplers in calming blues juxtaposed against the shiny tile floor and plush brown-leather couches. The establishment is further complemented by java-inspired décor such as coffee-bean-sack wall art and an in-house roaster.
