A former Japan Barista Champion and WBC runner-up is here. And that is why it is utterly shocking how mediocre and sloppy the espresso is. Del Sole is more restaurant than cafe. Its aim seems to be churning through food service as quickly as possible (with uninspired food--a flaccid pizza here, a lifeless and stingy smoked salmon sandwich there), with pulls of espresso as mere afterthoughts. Mine was not ground to order and seemed to have been sitting for a minute or so before being served. A monumental disappointment.
