It doesn't hurt that the only cute guys in the entire city congregate at Ninth Street Expresso, but that's not why we go to this far-east cafA(c). The owner, Ken Nye, uses a Colombian brand, and (unlike at Starbucks) I never have to tell the baristas how to make the drink. The espresso is smooth and not bitter in the least, and the first time I had one of their lattes with the foam expertly weaved into the shape of a leaf, I felt like I was home. (PS: Ken will eject you from the premises for using the words tall, grande, or venti).
