A review is probably superfluous since this place is so highly regarded. The reputation is deserved. This is some of the best espresso I've ever had. Order a straight espresso or macchiato and drink it unsweetened. You'll experience a light, smooth flavor with no bitterness and even a slight natural sweetness. The buzz you get from a drink like this has no jittery quality. I think that the bitter alkaloids in a poorly pulled espresso are the cause of this feeling, not the caffeine. More research is needed on this theory;) but in any case the espresso at ninth st is a fine quality drug.
