tried the espresso at the 19th street location twice this weeek.

they have three roasts, the espresso you get there is the medium...

it was nice, quite smooth....not the most characterful espresso i ever had, but very good, smooth, mild, lacking in overt bitterness...the one i had 3 days later was still good, but the water temp mustve been off...ultra hot, not as good...

i bought a pound for home and found that unless you get it EXACTLY right, that mildness instead shows maybe too much so far has proven an unforgiving coffee to work with at home, (again, for espresso only im talkin) but occasionally very good...
