Cavernous Peet's in the strip mall leading up to the Emeryville Market Place. They have a patio with sidewalk seating and a couple of parasols, plus plenty of indoor seating. One wall is consumed with a massive display/dispenser of roasted beans. There's also one of Peet's "Custom Cup(tm) drip filter stands. Using duelling two-group La Marzocco machines, they pull a properly short shot that's somewhat potent. It comes with a medium brown crema of moderate thickness. Flavorwise, it has a pungent herbal and smoky taste.
