I'm from Munich, Germany but my parents live in the Ocala area. I'll be there in early June - are there any chances to get decent espresso in the Ocala region? Orlando seems quite a drive for a cup...

best regards

Hi! Volta in Gainesville would be closer than anything in Orlando. I can vouch for them. Otherwise, based on a quick search online, maybe check out the places below? Please report back if you do! Cheers.

^^^ Glad you had a good experience! I wasn't able to round up any recommendations in the Homestead area.
