|This used be one challenging place to make out. But since they've taken over the Mission St. storefront (that used to be a Neighborbood Public Radio broadcasting booth and a non-profit mapping project), it's now much more like any other storefront caf�. They've taken over the space by making the caf� much more spacious and bright, with large glass windows facing Mission St., worn wooden floors, and a mismatch of various wooden tables and chairs. There's even window counter seating on converted (and comfortable) tractor seats. Of course, it's still primarily about the pie here - but the espresso isn't bad for Mission St. Using a two-group La Marzocco Linea, they pull slightly larger shots with a medium brown crema of a decent thickness and consistency, serving it in a saucerless cup. The crema and body here has improved some in recent years - including some of the flavor depth. What used to be thinner and more watery is now a respectable blend of herbal pungecy and spice. It has a distinctly Taylor Made flavor - a body-forward, more earthy profile that is out of vogue with most new roasters.
