|Like the Muddy Waters Coffee House chain caf� it replaced, this is a newer corner caf� among the newer lower Mission condos. They haven't changed much about the coffee pedigree, however, as they still use a two-group La Spaziale at the bar and McLaughlin coffee. But the new ownership does a much better job with it. There is limited outdoor table seating on 29th St. and a few indoor tables. Before the untrained staff washed their portafilter handles in cold water. Under new management, they no longer seem to do that - although they still aren't entirely clear that their beans come from McLaughlin. They pull shots with a medium brown, even crema - it's a decent-sized layer with a thicker consistency. It's almost surprisingly decent: short, with a smooth flavor of cloves and mild pepper. No more watered-down, overextracted , ashy, drip-coffee flavor. Served in unusual retail kitchenware.
