Of course what is often now considered good is not what was traditional dark espresso. Tastes have evolved.
The coffee place on the hill is in a bombshell location, they roast their own, but they don't seem to be "into" coffee. I remember asking them for a bean recommendation to take home to use for pourover and the barista gave me this hollow blank stare like I was speaking greek.
St. Louis has some great cafes, don't get me wrong, just not any I know of using a lever.
