There is a definite art to pulling a perfect shot of espresso--some gigantic corporate coffee shops that will remain unmentioned leave it to an automated machine. At Raging Sage, they have an old-style espresso machine, and the baristas know how to get the grinds just right so that your espresso is perfectly full-bodied. With a relaxed air, they steam your milk, and in moments, you're handed a caffeinated creation that is unique and delicious every time--proof that humans make much better espresso artists than machines.
