Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairy-tale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of coffee, paninis, and more at The Foundry on McCullough Avenue.
The Foundry's bean barons orchestrate a menu that brims with organic-certified free-trade coffee and specialty drinks and a buoyant selection of light café fare. A local roaster delivers The Foundry's weekly bounty of coffee beans, which the crew grinds moments before brewing them and pouring the coffee into refillable cups that are as bottomless as a trap door in the Oval Office. Diners can pair the Elvis frappuccino––a blend of peanut butter, banana, and mocha ($4–$4.50)––with a solid savory, such as the spicy chipotle-chicken panini with a melted fusion of chipotle-cheese salsa, mozzarella, pico de gallo, and guacamole ($6.50). Cool off a piping hot palate with a selection of sweet fruit smoothies ($3.25–$3.75).
A portion of The Foundry's proceeds is dedicated to charitable causes around the area, and the community-conscious staff is available for inquiries about local philanthropy. Visitors can listen to live tunesmiths on Thursday nights, cruise the shop's free Wi-Fi, or peruse the monthly visual-arts shows that host local artists and interpretive shadow puppetry.
