This outlet is on the ground floor of a larger office building with an entrance from either inside or outside along Sacramento St. Inside, the space is rather cramped - with a lone table and stools plus a couple of patio tables outside the window. Ed the Barista, a rather friendly guy, runs the show weekday mornings. Using a more traditional four-group La Marzocco, he pulls a relatively light shot of espresso. It has a medium-to-light brown crema of an adequate thickness - with a mild flavor of spice and cedar. Good body, however.
