Artis Coffee on Fourth. I have mixed feelings. [Berkeley]

I've been there twice now and gotten a flat white each time. (I think I should try their latte just for comparison.) I like the coffee, but the atmosphere seems a bit...rarefied? If you come in just wanting a straight-forward drip, it can be a little confusing and even intimidating. I can tell good coffee and bad coffee - it's all the in-betweens that I miss so I guess I'm not really the target taste-bud they're aiming at.

And I was certainly taken aback by the price of the 16oz juices. I suppose I can understand the pricing given the ingredients and quality, but it's not what I expected.

That said, I do think it's a nice addition to the area and if I'm in that area, I would go try more of their coffee drinks even if the finer points are lost to me.
