Another Java City convert. This one went the way of Miraloma's Creighton Bakery. Hopefully they'll never emulate their espresso quality. Large cafe with significant amount of shaded outdoor seating. Using a Mr. Espresso two-group Faema, they produce a suitably small paper cup with rich, medium-brown crema and an even richer aroma. It has a pungent, herbal flavor mixed with some honey and ash. But their fast pour leaves a slightly sour edge.
