Drinking coffee, like yelling at the cat, thinking about motorcycles, and setting fire to the neighbor's wicker man, is vital to starting each day. Inaugurate the a.m. with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a five-drink punch card good for all coffee and tea drinks (up to a $22.45 value) at Steep and Brew Express.
Pouring hand-warming mugs of dark-roasted alertness for morning rushers and sleepy daytrippers, Steep and Brew Express keeps Madison percolating with toasty, delicious potions. The five-drink punch card is good for every drink on Steep and Brew’s menu, including authentic chai teas that treat the tongue to soothing spices and melty, chocolaty mochas, but extra shots, syrups, and Gregorian chants will cost extra. Use the punch card to grab a cup of fair-trade, organic joe to sip outside while perusing a neighbor’s diary, or take a mug of hot tea inside, where the cozy atmosphere inspires impromptu novellas and overdue thank-you notes to middle-school librarians.
Steep and Brew
Baristas at Steep and Brew froth milk from the local Sassy Cow Family Creamery for lattes made with organic, eco-friendly, fair trade Café Fair coffees. Additionally, they steep loose-leaf tea from their collection of over 25 different flavors also available for purchase in bulk.
