What You'll Get
From its command post atop the mountains of Ethiopia, the wily coffee plant has cast its enthralling aroma of mind control over the entire world. Join the caffeinated collective with today's Groupon. For $6, you get $12.50 worth of coffee, tea, pastries, and more at Sola Coffee Bar in Old Town Scottsdale. Bring in your Groupon to Sola to receive a balance-carrying gift card, enabling it to be used across multiple visits and fit snugly in your wallet alongside your expired X-Files fan-club card. As one of the few independent not-for-profit brew houses in the area, this giving beanery returns its revenue in the form of community projects and charitable causes abroad.
Unlike filling up cars with mashed-up dinosaurs, filling up your body with Sola coffee serves both the customer and the common interest. A local roastery supplies and spills the beans that are ground into each made-to-order coffee ($1.50–$2) or latte ($3–$4). If you're devil-and-angeling between the organic agave latte ($3.50–$4) or the locally sourced masala chai ($2.50–$3.50), a wonderful wizard of coffee will help you settle the debate using a wealth of bean-themed knowledge. Pair barista beverages with locally baked pastries ($2.50) and biscottis ($1.50) that make a handy on-the-go snack for haunted locomotive trips to unknown locations.
The froth-friendly folks at Sola invite customers into their cozy, modern, WiFi-enabled space to engage in online chats with distant relatives, spark face-to-face conversations with newfound strangers, or simply sit quietly, communicating to passersby through telepathic smiles. Plant today’s Groupon into the grassroots of the community to feed a morning fix while assisting causes both near and far. Sola is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., featuring live music.
