This Tully's lives near the top of the Fillmore St. hill. It has a few indoor tables and a couple of outdoor tables, perfect for being overwhelmed with summer fog. They use a three-group La Marzocco Linea with up to six (count 'em) milk frothing pitchers at the ready - a lot for a small shop like this. They pull espresso with a modest-sized shot that can sometimes run large. A medium brown, mottled, textured crema. The barista also fully preheats for-here cups (when the few they have aren't in the wash and you're stuck with paper). The resulting shot is a bit aromatic - with good roast smells. Flavorwise, it's robust - with a bit of cloves and smokiness. [CLOSED: as of Nov 2014, marking the end of Tully's in SF.]
