I have bought beans from them over the years, although I haven't
been able to go lately.

Their espresso blend is on par with other good Northern Italian style
blends( like Counter Culture Aficionado). I am not sure if this has changed
this year or not.
They roast at least once a week (main day was Wednesday).


The staff is nice, and its has a nice atmosphere. I do worry about them though, cos the location
is not ideal for walking traffic, and I imagine there is now competition from La Farm bakery,
which opened up a cafe.
