As a side note to our Tango Night experience, during one of our busiest rushes, a man came up to the counter and in heavily-accented English said the following:
"This is the best espresso I've had in your country."
We love hearing comments like that. And it's a tribute to Andi and Jenny who were keeping the La Marzocca beast tuned to that magical 20-23 seconds per shot all night long, despite the record crowds (for us) and the room getting alternately warmer and colder all evening.
As it was the first time this gentleman had been in, we didn't have his name on file. And with the line at counter we couldn't take the time to find out more. On a different day, we would've considered getting a release to use his testimonial for marketing.
But as it was, we'll simply have to settle for pleasing a new customer whom we hope will be back.
