Subject: Good shot in South Florida?
Does anyone know where to get a good shot and/or observe a skilled
barista in action in South Florida? I think part of my problem in
trying to get a good shot at home is I have nothing to judge it by.
Maybe there are people that get together, a place to get some hands-on
watching/learning? Anything?

Thanks-

Ed

Brew Urban Cafe in Fort Lauderdale. Only real shot in Broward that I
know of. They use Black Cat for espresso. Most staff are good. Most
staff are consistent. The new owners of the place seem to have big
ideas so they are now doing beers at night, and after two yrs. , just
now replaced the beat up LM. I liked the place more
when it was just the ole 2 street coffee.Still, the best in town for a
capp or shot.

I have a Cimbali Jr. at home, IMHO, this is the only place that can
beat a simple shot at home. The Roasted Bean is also the place to try
different beans as they roast many to order. Prices are fantastic.
