Very local coffee spot with regulars that look more like a West Virginia jug band than the S.F. resident stereotype. Dentist office music plays as the barista shows more skill than you'd expect from this place. Crema is rich and thick - a medium brown with the oils congealing. Unusual roasted flavor that's a little woody and medicinal. Served in a La San Marco cup with no saucer - the in-house espresso being an obvious rarity.
