Notes: Temperature Control Problems

Simple yet elegant restaurant with large seating area and a two-group Mr. Espresso Faema behind the bar. Espresso is served lukewarm with a ring of medium brown crema. Thin body and flavor, despite its modest size. With a weaker roast taste bordering on the medicinal side. Stick to their hot chocolate dessert instead.
