When we put together seasonal drinks, our baristas build them from the ground up. Or in this case, the ‘Grounded-up.’ Testing each ingredient to make sure that the spice, sweetness, and occasional bitterness brings out the most essential elements of coffee and tea.
After all, there’s no point in throwing premium organic spices at low quality coffee or tea. In this case, for the hot ‘Chaider,’ we start with an organic Indian Assam tea that can withstand the zest of black tellicherry pepper, and the bite of cardamom. Read the rest of this entry »

Grounded’s co-owner, Jen Greenberg is well-known around the cafe for her talkative cheery nature, original latte creations, and clever sandwich names.
Queen of the espresso machine, Jen is more than a barista and sandwich maker. She’s responsible for the most asked about fall food item: Grounded’s Hot Vegetarian Chili.
That’s right, Jen’s toasty chili packs away 1000 units of cayenne heat! But it’s only available during two seasons and will satisfy (or trick) any meat-lover into thinking that they’re eating beef.
Located in the back of the kitchen, our chili is served with fresh bread and is completely vegan.
Pair Jen’s vegan chili with a vegetarian or non-vegetarian breakfast wrap and you’ve got yourself a feast.
Greenberg’s vegan chili has been in the family well before Grounded’s birth WAY back in 2004, and isn’t going anywhere. Well, maybe not…Catch it while you can, because chili season at Grounded ends when the weather gets toasty!
A tall glass of our fresh brewed Iced Cardamom coffee is bound to lift your spirits to new heights!
Our Valentine’s latte, the Red Hot White Chocolate will give you an arousing sting, followed by divine pleasure: milk or soy, two shots luscious espresso, Ghirardelli white chocolate, cinnamon powder & a pinch of cayenne powder (and yes, we have Red Hots on hand for those daring an extra topping). Enjoy!
