I love foursquare. I also love coffee. Combine the two by searching for coffee in the “explore tab” for some serendipitous delight. Foursquare also recognizes my caffeinated curiosity as a “Level 7 – Fresh Brew Badge”.
The other Saturday, I did just that. This exploration led me to BJava Coffee. To be fair, I had heard of BJava from Dig-IN: A Taste of Indiana and some other events, but I had never stepped foot into their location. I also had the incentive to unlock their special for $.50 off a latte. Turns out, I unlocked more than that.
I had a nice chat with the owner, BJ, who admits to using any sort of free promotion she can to market her business. Foursquare and Yelp are just a couple of sites where she offers online specials. After finishing my latte, I met Chris – BJava’s foursquare Mayor and the Duchess on Yelp. There’s something charming abut local businesses. A more personal connection than you might find at the Starbucks at the other end of this strip mall on 56th and Lafayette Rd.
Before leaving I also made the investment of a bag of Honduran coffee beans and a Clever Coffee Dripper (which brews a better cup of coffee than my trusty french press… yup, I said it).
It is a pretty awesome contraption!
More incentive to try them out? A coupon to get $10 worth of BJava Coffee for $5! Hurry, supplies are limited and this offer lasts for 6 days via GreenClipping.
