Espresso Hunt: Little Italy
After a long hiatus, I'm out for espressos again - and bringing my camera to prove it. Today brought me to Cafe Diplomatico, in the heart of Little Italy.
The coffee suffered from the same problem I find in so many other bars around town - they put too much in it. Part of this is my fault - I forgot to ask for it to be very short - but I suspect a bit of it is also an attempt to provide some sort of 'value for money' to the general public who want more of a drink than a shot.
The espresso itself was good. A nice thick crema that stuck to the sides of the cup, and a rounded, sweet flavour, with none of the bitterness that could be experiences with old roasted beans. Were I to find a downside, the cups themselves were rather cold, which sucked the heat right out of the coffee.
Ahh well, live and learn.
