|This Italian bookstore and import store has been a long-time favorite of mine. It opened in 1880 and has changed owners a few times, but in Fall 2007 it added espresso bar service. They sell Italian language books, magazines, newspapers, CDs, and T-shirts - in addition to various moka pots, Danesi coffee, and some basic pastries from a nearby supplier. There are a few small tables with chairs to sit down and relax with a cup. The new espresso bar behind the counter consists of a two-group semi-automatic machine private-labeled by Danesi, and with it they pull modestly sized shots with a thin layer of dark-to-medium-brown crema. It has a mild herbal flavor, but it's relatively weak and thin for what we've been able to get out of Danesi beans at home. There's no chocolate in its aroma or flavor, for example. They should be capable of more with system tuning and/or practice. Served in Danesi logo designer cups.
