|Formerly Beyond Expectations Caf�, this is a longer space with limited window seating in front and a casual space in back that looks like someone's rented apartment living room. They play up the Italian theme here, despite using and selling Ritual Roasters Coffee: they offer Italian pastries, imported confections, and even Italian music. (Plus salads and panini on the menu.) Using a rather battle-worn two-group La Carimali, they pull shots (Ritual's Evil Twin espresso blend) with a mottled, congealed light and medium brown crema. The shot is properly short and served in classic brown Nuova Point cups. Yet the resulting cup lacks any real brightness or potency that you'd come to expect given everything else. For Ritual service, something is missing here. It's a good cup, with notes of mild pepper and some herbal pungency, but it could be much better.
