Liquor store with a coffee bar and no seating save for a lone sidewalk table. Four-group Pasquini looks impressive, and they claim to use Torrefazione Italia beans. However, the immediate "rank" aroma and drip coffee-like pepper flavor says "Peerless" or another inexpensive and somewhat stale brand. Served watery, too hot, and with suspended grounds. Thick crema with many larger bubbles, but it thins out quickly.
