I just discovered this place up in north Austin. They have an espresso machine just like mine, except theirs has three groups. I had an Americano this morning and it was really nice. I bought some beans too, because I like to support the non-Starsucks shops. I'll let you know how the beans are this afternoon.
So if you ever find yourself up by Highland Mall in north Austin, stop by Kick Butt.
I have no affiliation with this shop, I just love great coffee. Oh yeah and the barista there is really hot!
