Review
This café replaced the Cafe Enhancement cart service in the 215 Fremont building. A few indoor tables and one out front. Internet access, prepackaged sandwiches, pastries. Like Cafe Enhancement, they use Torrefazione Italia Perugia blend beans. Using a two-group Espressa Genius machine, they produce an espresso with virtually no crema. However, it is of a modest size - giving it a decent, woody, mild spice flavor. But given its body and other characteristics, this is strong drip coffee by any other measure. Served in a delicate designer cup. The cashier has not computed the possibility of customers ordering singles, so beware: she'll automatically charge you for a double. They also sell a number of roasted bean varieties from The Organic Coffee Co. to Peet's to Torrefazione Italia.
