At the mouth of Rincon Center One, this small caf� offers the usual quick lunch fare plus bold Torrefazione Italia branding. Two smallindoor tables, and two outdoors under parasols. They don't grind to order. However, they serve espresso with a nice, thicker crema of light and medium brown stripes. Good balance, with the flavor of distinctive (not drip coffee) pepper and a little smoke. Served in drip coffee paper cups.
