Holding down a central spot in the warehouse district next to Pacific Edge climbing gym and behind Day’s Market, the spacious new coffee roasting plant for Verve also boasts a very very tiny espresso counter, with a few stools at the bar and unlimited schmoozing space in the “front yard” parking lot.

The macchiaespressocups.jpgti are terrific, and the ambience is as close to Milanese industrial chic as it’s possible to get on the pacific rim.
