Saxbys Coffee's rich array of caffeinated ambrosias, crafted from grade 1 arabica beans, joins a cornucopia of teas and smoothies on the shop's extensive menu. Espresso drinks include exotic cinnamon lattes and basic cappuccinos, which can be cloaked in frothy crema and 18 dulcet syrups ($1.70+). Two seasoned brewsmiths forge Saxbys Coffee's wide selection of roasts from single-origin, fair-trade, and organic beans, which undergo a European roasting process to prepare cocoa-noted Tanzanian peaberries and Italiano blends for beverage Valhalla. Frolattes, a frozen breed of latte rarely found in nature, exist in such flavors as white-chocolate mocha and British Islander ($3.70+) and flank a throng of teas ($1.50+) and fruity smoothies ($3.45+). Stomach-equipped cyborgs can bask in the soothing aura of the shop's free WiFi while noshing on one of the café's fresh pastries.
Saxbys Coffee delights taste buds with coffees brewed from small-batch roasted beans. Green coffee beans journey from their country of origin to Saxbys' roasting facility, where the master roaster employs traditional European techniques to carefully roast each small batch of beans, giving them a light, medium, or dark flavor profile.
In-store baristas spice up cups of java with more than 200 flavorings, such as coconut and toasted marshmallow, that imbue brews with an extra kick. Saxbys Coffee is just as meticulous with the environment as it is with its beverages—all of the shop's lids, java jackets, napkins, and cups are 100% recyclable and 100% welcomed by billy goats attempting to curb their tin-can addictions.
