Espresso, Amsterdam St, Richmond

I forgot to take the camera with me, so you'll just have to trust me that the crema was spectacular. It was thick. Like somebody had dropped a teaspoon of icecream in there, and it hadn't quite dissolved yet.
I was also very impressed with her use of the word demitasse. You know the small cups that espressi are served in? That's what they are called.
"Would you like the short black to take away, or in a demitasse?"
What a great word. It sure deserves those italics.
