Notes: Coffee Sales

Organic, gourmet café with arguably the classiest meal you can buy under $10 anywhere. They attempt to make espresso that lives up to the food, but it falls short. A few indoor tables among shelves of organic food. Espresso has a distinctive and rich Mr. Espresso aroma. Served with an even layer of medium brown crema and no saucer. Thinner body and flavor, with a taste leaning towards pepper and mild spices, but it's definitely espresso. [CLOSED soon after by 2004.]
