Notes: Kiosk; Temperature Control Problems

Within this hipermercado, the largest on the island, there's a small, functional café inside, often attended by someone in an official diner-looking uniform. It's a bit of a kiosk, but there is limited table seating nearby outside of the checkout counters. Using a two-group Fiamma Prestige, they pull shots with a mottled medium and light brown crema that can look a bit sloppy. It has a basic spice and wood flavor, but that's watered down somewhat and less potent than it should be - given the size of the pour in the cup. ?0.50.
