Barista Brew Cafe

Location: 431 G Street, Davis

Reviewed: June 11, 2009

Espresso: My single was served on the tall end for volume, at perhaps 1.5oz. It was ground to order and tamped. The medium-to-light brown crema was of moderate thickness but dissipated rapidly. The shot contained notes of caramel and a hint of lemony-acidity, with a nutty aftertaste. It was, however, slightly sour.

Atmosphere: Barista Brew is a small shop near the edge of downtown Davis. It has limited seating due to the size but also has a couple of tables on the sidewalk. Other than being on the small side, there isn't much of note to comment on.

Verdict: Solid but not outstanding.

I like these reviews a lot, none of the usual flowery language and waxing lyrical about coffee, you just get down to the nuts and bolts of it (although I hope there aren't nuts and bolts in the coffee).
