Notes: Coffee Sales; Coffee Accessory Sales; Outdoor Seating

Quiet and subdued, even on weekday mornings. A few indoor chairs and tables with a lot of retail space and a visible "no pets" policy. One outdoor table. The barista at least works over a La Marzocco. But they will push your single order to a double for the extra shot - since turnover is slow. (If you accept the offer, they will pour it from shotglass into your cup - losing heat in the transfer. So don't.) Not very skilled beyond paper cups - spillage, no preheating, etc.They serve their espresso with a thin, medium-to-dark brown crema. Decent, smoky flavor - with some pepper, clove, and buttery notes.
