Notes: Coffee Sales

Roast organic coffee on the premises (a roaster is proudly displayed up front). Overextracted, a little thin, slightly bitter. No crema. Hot in a full cup. More French style, but no attention to detail. Owner Nick Heydarian served and could use barista school. Wall photography & Internet access. Grungy and often mentally disturbed clientele. [CLOSED: Replaced by El Cafetazo as of 8/2006.]
