This place was way cool looking. Definitely a boutique style. Think millions of dollars in design and a few dollars leftover for coffee and you have a palace of a coffee shop.
They intended to simplify the coffee selection process by breaking out their coffee offering into a rating system from 1 to 10, which was sorted by lightest to darkest (BOOO!). That's it. No further knowledge. Even if I pretended the coffee wasn't slammed into little plastic cups that go into landfills it is a hard thing to buy into. They wanted me to select #10 for my cap, so I obviously picked #6 because a burnt coffee was going to send me over the edge.
This is what came out:
I'm going to be fair. Though this is not really correct there are some things about it that were redeeming. The milk was the right temperature. I couldn't believe it. I was able to drink this as soon as they brought it. I'm happy to report they know the right temperature to steam the milk to. The cup size was also right which was refreshing. The espresso was non-existent. It was completely lost in the milk until it completely cooled. After the drink cooled it tasted, well not so great. I got a sweet piece of chocolate and a nice presentation though.
Garbage...nice retail location but no reason to ever go. I hate POD's.
