Kenneth Davids runs the flagship coffee review web page, His web page needs to be read through USA glasses, as he never specifies his brewing methods, so one must assume that the bulk of his reviews are for filter coffee. So its always particularly interesting to read what he has to say about espresso, such as in this article.

I have to confess that I just dont "get" Davids rating system. "Lean" and "sharp" espresso nonetheless manages to get an 88?
