About a month ago I took my folks on an espresso tour of just a few of the shops in Phoenix. One of them was Cartel Coffee Lab in Tempe and here are some photos from that visit. Overall, I’m extremely pleased with the cappuccino quality at Cartel.

  1. Well, the second pic shows quite a bit of the kit in the sop, you can see the San Franciscan Roaster (and it’s mini-me sample roaster) in the back, behind the cure girl, and the E-Robur’s hopper peekin’ out above the Synesso, but the shots of the drinks look magnificent.
    (Making me want to go to the kitchen and fire up the machine…)
