What are some of the best, say top 5, places for straight, current-generation espresso in Toronto? Not cappuccinos/lattes/americanos. Not espresso brewed by an 80 year old Italian woman in a metal pot. Not espresso judged with any amount of sugar, honey or mixing. I hereby disqualify anybody who judges their coffee with any of these variables from commenting.
I've tried a bunch of them that come "recommended" and they are mostly sub-par, maybe 1-2 out of 5 if 0 is a from a vending machine in a gas station.
I've had decent at Dark horse and Crema and one other I can't recall the name of.
