Well I am attempting to develop a taste for espresso so I am looking for =
espresso gurus from the Houston TX area that can direct me to a café =
that makes great or at least acceptable espresso. I have made myself so =
I know what espresso should not taste like but I need something on the =
other side of the ledger so I can tell the better side of it.
 
Thanks,
Don

Don - I like Manny's. It is a little Greek Cafe/Tea Room at TX Hwy 6 and
West Road, about 3 miles south of US 290 on NW side of Houston.  It is in a
strip center on the SW side of that intersection.
By the way - there is a Houston Homeroasters Yahoo mail list, too.

haven't tried Manny's but i can tell you that none of the indy coffee 
shops i've tried (Artiste, Agora, Brasil, Empire Cafe, River Oaks Coffee 
House-esp. River Oaks Coffee House due to a staff that doesn't know or 
care to know how to pull a decent shot) are worth a crap. Most of them 
use Katz Coffee (local coffee roaster, or should i say murderer-you 
think *$ is dark) for their espresso. I've heard that a new place called 
Inversion is pretty good, but i've also heard that they get their coffee 
from Katz.

also, as Justin mentioned, check out the Houston Homeroasters list. 
someone else just joined up and Gene mentioned a get-together. maybe yet 
another newcomer can help spring us into action.

I'll tell you this - I used to think I needed to develop a taste for
espresso until I visited Simon's Coffee Shop.  Once I tasted what it was
supposed to taste like, it was clear everything I had had before that was
just made wrong.  You'll see what I mean when you find a good cafe!  The
drink I thought was supposed to be just a bitterish, thickish coffee was
really a surprisingly sweet, chocolatey, creamy elixir that was gone too
soon ;)

Justin,
 
DO you have an address or web page for the Houston home roasters list?
 
Thanks for the tip on Manny's I am on the west side close to 6 so I will =
travel a little north and check it out.
 
Thanks again,
 
Don
