Our espresso is a blend of Central American and Indonesian beans. We offer rotating single origin drip coffees from the Western Hemisphere in addition to our house drip. We make world class traditional espresso drinks, or, if you insist on sweets, we make a homemade caramel sauce that will turn our lattes into your favorite drink. We use a Belgium semi-sweet chocolate for our mochas, offering up a rich chocolate flavor without all the sugar. We also serve cold processed espresso, Toddy. We have a sweetened spiced coffee known as Fantasia.
We use beans that are locally roasted by our trustworthy friend Adib. He owns and operates Lotus Coffee Company. His history as a roaster is unique: when he was a thirteen year old boarding school student in Yorkshire, England he befriended an old blind coffee roaster who took him under his wing and taught him the trade. His early understandings of the craft were therefore guided by aroma and sound. Only with experience did he begin to take notice of color change, which is a common guiding post of the trade. "It's all about consistency, patience, and love for roasting. Bring me any bean, from any country, and i will produce a great cup of coffee!"
We call her Stella. She's
a two grouped, manual lever Gaggia espresso machine. She's an Italian built antique. Back in the day she lived in a hotel in San Francisco. We love her.

Not a coffee drinker? We make killer in-house chai. We blend all of our own spices and tea that we get from our neighbors at Wonderland Tea and Spices.
