|Somewhat typical museum caf� (attached to the De Young Museum). There's a lot of cafeteria-style seating besides a sculpture-filled patio. Although they offer hot meals, the system is a bit of a mess as you either bring up items or order at the register. The espresso machines, two-group Astras, are at opposite sides of the food serving area, behind different registers. They are rather sloppy with their machines - often using only one portafilter, and operating equipment that is not only cheap but needs servicing. They pulled shots extremely high in a mismatched small cup and huge (Steelite) saucer. It had a faded medium brown crema that left only a ring around the rim of the cup (leaving it 'bald' in the center), and the quality of the crema reflects a machine in need of cleaning. Not only are they sloppy with their choice of serving cups, but there's a bit of coffee spillage and even grounds left on the saucer. Also, the serving temperature is far too high. Not surprisingly, the flavor is mostly ashy, but it's not awfully bitter.
