|Walking into places like this for espresso ratings feels like donating your body to science - except while you're still alive. All signs are bad when the counter menu calls it 'expresso'. This is a dank, dark, and depressing cheap eatery near Union Square with some indoor table and window counter seating. Using a two-group Pasquini at the register, they pull gargantuan-sized shots of overextracted espresso in paper cups. It has that ashy overextracted aroma, a thin layer of medium brown crema, and a watered-down flavor of mild spice.
