Notes: None

Dingy diner interior with a long counter and stools, cheap diner tables. Small La Pavoni needs major tuning, pouring liquid with the color and thickness of a diet cola. No aroma nor crema. With a rather foul roast flavor that's not quite coffee-like. As Jon Bon Jovi might put it, "Your espresso is like bad medicine."
