went to ritual for the first time after reading all the posts about its coffee.the caffe was packed the staff friendly and knowledgable and passionate about their coffee.They explained that they use aspecial non restrictive filter that brews nirectly into the cup without passing thru the traditional group head therefore not overheating the coffee providing a sweeter flavor.Itried first the cappucino a nice rosette good creamy foam smooth though slightly underroasted flavor profile leaving a slightlysour after taste.Still compared to most caffes very good.The espresso had anice thick crema but had ablack outer ring usually due to overroasting which it is not or to hot of a group head.The aftertaste also was slightly sour but no other defects.Iwould rank Roma in NorthBeach higher but Ritual above Blue Bottle
