Notes: Kiosk; Coffee Sales; Outdoor Seating

A former Oh La La! outlet, this kiosk with no internal seating has two outdoor tables and a server/barista formerly of Caffe Espresso. Using a two-group CMA machine, they make a relatively fast pour for an espresso - and not directly into the paper cup. The result has a plae film of crema that dissipates rapidly and a lighter, but decent, woody flavor with mild spices. Still, the Torrefazione Italia around the corner is far better.
