What You'll Get
Without coffee, uncaffeinated office workers would have no scapegoat for morning copy-machine mishaps and curses directed at packed school buses. Get the boost needed to begin a day of profanity-free productivity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks at The Green Grind on College Street.
The Green Grind marries eco-friendliness to enticing coffee and tea selections through its sustainable practices and by offering fair-trade-certified and organic brews. Java junkies can satisfy crippling caffeine addictions with a large cup of locally roasted coffee ($2.20), a large espresso ($2.50), or a single-shot cappuccino ($3.20), and sensitive-tongued taste fiends can coolly sip on a Kombucha Wonder Drink ($3.50). Sail seas of tea from a pot ($3.75) of loose-leaf such as Earl Grey or blueberry rooibos, or sidle up to a glass of iced tea ($2.50), made fresh daily and available in a fruity peach, blueberry, or lemon flavour. Lattes, mochachinos, steamers, and hot chocolates are also available for drinking or dipping celery stalks into.
As you quell the cries of the coffee-craving demon dwelling in your stomach, take comfort in knowing that you're also contributing to The Green Grind's quest for sustainability: one per cent of all sales at The Green Grind go to the eco-minded organization 1% for the Planet, and drinks enjoyed inside the charming and colourful coffee shop are served in real china to cut down on waste. A 15-cent discount is offered for customers who bring in their own reusable travel mug. The Green Grind is working toward getting LEED certification, as well as receiving renewable electricity from Bullfrog Power. Keep the planet kicking while you kick back caffeinated quality at The Green Grind.
- Getting back to the coffee, both the mocha and the americano are extremely good and the ginger snap cookie is deliciously sweet, light, and crunchy. – Charlotte Johnstone, blogTO
- …what Green Grind gives to you is in-house roasted coffee from local growers Classic Coffee; fresh baked goods from schoolbus-cum-mobile, organic bakery, Local Café; and most importantly, the chance to "have your coffee and save it too." – Erin Hershberg, Martini Boys
