Notes: Coffee Sales

Higher end Italian restaurant chain. Marble-top bar with counter and window seating serves the morning coffee, and evening martini, markets. Professional-looking staff with decent skills. Espresso has a thin, tiger-striped crema. Medicinal flavor sweetens with molasses notes at the bottom of the cup - though there is a little sourness. Served in Il Fornaio-branded cups.
