|This Oakland/Rockridge outlet of the small chain is a little smaller than its SF Fillmore District counterpart, but the standards are the same. Outside there's a sidewalk bench and a couple of chairs; inside there are four beat-up wooden tables and a tendency for house flies to gather. Plus the requisite wall o' chocolate. All of their espresso shots are short doubles by default. And using a older, three-group La Marzocco, they pull espresso shots that are potent but not syrupy in consistency. It has a sweet tobacco aroma and a medium brown, even layer of average thickness crema. Flavorwise, there's honey and tobacco served in their brown ACF cups. A good, Blue Bottle effort.
