Costa Rica single origin double ristretto pulled by Chris. Sweet, syrupy, very fruity, tasted like a red wine. Very nice shot! I wanted to try more freebee espressos but the line was too long.

Donít try this at home, because you canít do it, so youíll feel bad if you try and fail. I had this cappuccino with very nice latte art poured using the stop and start method. Very nice creamy steamed milk till the bottom of the cup. Yum!

Very nice tasty beer served for free by the Corralitos Brewing Co. They actually made a beer that was made with Verve Street level espresso as an ingredient. I was very skeptical, but the Street Level Stout was very nice! Sweet, heavy body, smooth, low bitterness, and espresso flavor. Somehow it really worked. Nice beer!
