This wet processed Ethiopian Sidamo was a really nice S.O shot. I was impressed! Don uses the WDT to distribute the grounds before tamping. He likes to use a triple basket because of the large space between the screen and the grounds.

Don also made a cappa with the wet processed Sidamo and steamed organic Clover milk, and it was a very nice cappa. That Sidamo was just wonderful with steamed milk.

This is the Moksha Italian blend ristretto. Good shot with chocolate and nice complexity. Thanks Vikram and Don for pulling all these great shots.

Hey, Odin. Don got one too. Shown here weighing the Indian Mysore beans and adding hot water to the bulb which is further heated by the halogen lamp.

Hot water gets pushed up to the grounds which are stirred and the coffee is brewed.

After a few minutes of brew time the halogen lamp is turned off and a cool wet towel is used to cool the lower bulp and move the coffee back down. It was a nice classic cup of coffee where the coffee taste can only be described as coffee.

This is definitely a good place to check out if your in the neighborhood. I had a very good espresso there. The crema was what I was hoping for after being disappointed so many times before at other places. The shot tasted great and I'll definitely be back for more. My wife also had a very nice cappuccino. The only downside is that its not open very late. But there is a comfy couch to sit down and enjoy your drinks.
