They use the Nuova Simonelli espresso machine that Verve had in their training lab.

Chad steaming and pouring milk to make this cappuccino. The Verve Sermon espresso cut very well through the milk and the steamed milk was smooth and sweet. Best cappa I've had in a long time!

New product from Verve. Tea made from dried out coffee cherries. Looks like coffee after steeping for 4 minutes. It doesn't taste like coffee, it doesn't taste like tea. It had a strong sweet berry flavor. Nice!

Unfortunately, I've learned that Avid Coffee will be closing down on October 12th.  They'll be serving Crepes on their last day, more details here.  I really enjoyed stopping in to this cafe.

That's too bad.  I thought that might be a tough location because of the distance from the highway.
