I don't get over to Tech Square as much as I used to. Today, I kicked myself out of my chair and paid a visit to Revelator Coffee. It is ensconced in the student apartment building in the middle of the square. If you are coming from the street, be sure to keep walking until you get there. Inside, the counter is brightly appointed and includes a small selection of baked goods. Revelator is a Birmingham outfit that roasts its own beans.
My espresso was the best that I have had in quite some time. The roast was flavorful and without even a whisper of bitterness. The foam, as you can see, was artfully prepared.
