A big shout out to House of Black in Poway (San Diego) as an excellent cafe. They pull the best ristretto shots on a gorgeous LM machine. Super cool owner and staff too. I really hope they survive this nasty COVID quarantine. I highly recommend them for anyone who lives in (or will travel to after quarantine) the San Diego area.
Nice! What beans are they using? I'll have to check it out next time I'm up north.
They use a single origin Guatemala. They also roast using a pretty cool electric roaster from a Bay Area startup that sounds very interesting. I even bought the Guatemala beans for home use once, and they pulled very nicely.
