My espresso was strong and not bitter at all and my friends Americano, hot and smooth, as it should be.
What separated Caffe Aroma from nearby Spots or Starbucks was the atmosphere. Small and intimate... if you are here, you are part of the village. My friends called it the neighborhood coffee house and it was. Think of it as the bar where everybody knows your name. If you were a regular, my guess is that they would even know your drink.
If you want to understand the ethos of the people of this area, spend a day here. I had a great conversation with a guy just talking politics. Other groups were discussing the baseball playoffs.
