I will add that to my map as a must try in town.  Too bad he is not open on the weekends when I normally get to Ptown.

Yes, well worth a visit though.

At the cafe they pull on a Rancilio three-group commercial lever and the shots are unlike anything else you're likely to find - definitely not third-wave - more like what you'd expect if you applied six decades of progress to a traditional Italian espresso from 1950. Really beautiful, and by, truly, the friendliest people who will ever hand you a demitasse (and that's in a town with a lot of very personable baristas...)

Anyone tried the Zoka decaf espresso Quatro?  Looks to be very reasonably priced.  I'm liking the "leather and tobacco" part of the description, but they do say that it's no overly aggressive in milk (I like aggressive).  

I did just pick up some Black Cat Decaf.  It's really good.  It's still not quite what I'm looking for though.  And, it's really expensive, especially when you figure in shipping.  I probably won't buy it again.  

I'll try some of these other recommendations.  I have 5lbs of Paradise Havana sitting here for my wife, and I REALLY want some right now.
