Notes: Kiosk; Coffee Sales; Coffee Accessory Sales

This airport coffee kiosk, located between Gates 69 & 70 in a small food court, follows the other Peet's licensees in the airport: a lot of Peet's merchandising, two fully automatic Schaefer machines, and batistas whose minds are clearly elsewhere (just like U.S. franchises in Europe). They squirt out espresso shots with an inconsistent layer of pale, persistent crema with larger bubbles. Light, but not exceptionally thin, body. With a slightly burnt pepper flavor that's bold and forward. Peet's brand gets defaced for departing tourists.
