I've tried them (on two separate New York visits with two different
baristas) and they're quite good. Not God-shots but good. I've tried =
their
ristrettos, straight espressos and cappas and was not disappointed. If =
they
know you're looking for a really good shot (or tell them that you're an
"altie" or something like that) they'll go the extra mile to turn out an
especially good one for you.

Kind of a sad commentary that they'll only make the effort if they know 
you know..............
Wouldn't it be a great world if we all did our best even when nobody's 
watching?

Sometimes, there is a converse effect when you tell them you're a 
homeroaster. I was in a coffee shop in Park Slope, Bklyn and i mentioned 
that i home roast. The guy got so nervous trying to do everything right, I 
felt bad for him and told him to relax. I told him I have different 
standards for myself vs. drinking out. I don't know if that made him feel 
better or not, but he did do a good job. Unfortunately, no matter how good 
a barista he/she is, if the coffee isn't fresh and of good quality, there's 
not much he/she can do.....

One of the reasons they probably "go the extra mile" if you say you are 
an 'altie' is that every time an altie goes there and doesn't get a god 
shot, they post something along the lines of "Higher Grounds Sucks". Of 
course, it's still a sad commentary.
