High-ceilinged corner espresso bar that's all about the coffee. Tubs of fresh roasted beans take up some floorspace. Bland interior with just a few tables. Espresso has a pale and creamy crema. Subtle pungent flavor. Served with a mis-matched serving dish for a saucer. (Once affiliated with Chatz Roasting Company near Modesto, CA. The caf�s were sold off in Feb 2005 and are unaffiliated with the roaster. So while they claim they still use Chatz beans, Chatz says otherwise.)
