Kind of fun, though perhaps not terrifically revelatory...

    I wish they would have included my new favorite espresso bar. Iron&Steam, serving fantastic espresso drinks through an open window of the Hi-Lo bar on Polk St.

      The hosts in the video were pretty boring. But can always count on you to bring us up to date on coffee news.

      The shakerato at Iron & Steam looks great, might need to order one if the weather stays warm in the City.

      1423 Polk St, San Francisco

        I must admit, I found the descriptor "wow" got old pretty fast (even worse on the Portland segment -- they need to talk more about what they are drinking!). I'm glad I posted though as I had not heard about Iron and Steam yet, so thanks poser! Ima follow you now...

          I'm glad you did too, and inspired me to start a placeholder topic for the upcoming Linea Caffe.

      I was pleased to see them give Graffeo its due. Still the best roast for people who like coffee to taste like coffee.

        I thought that was the most interesting part of the piece too.
