Unassuming deli, bakery, and cheese shop along the crest of Forest Hill. They run espresso promotions to compete with the Starbucks that muscled in next door. A few small indoor tables with outdoors. Barista stores the Rio's portafilter handles cooling on the drip tray, and the mishandling shows in the cool serving temperature and sour flavor edge. Otherwise, it has a mild drip flavor of spice. Served with a very thin, pale crema in traditional brown ACF cups.
