Notes: Kiosk

Though it is in an airport food court staffed by people with few other employment opportunities, this kiosk is surprisingly as good as most other Starbucks. Idiot-proof Verismo machines ensure a moderate quality standard with unskilled baristas. Paper cups only. They serve espresso with an even layer of pale crema. Cedar-like flavor with a nutty edge.
