Hubbard & Cravens espresso is the best that I have tasted -- either in their store or at home using their whole bean espresso blend -- outside of Italy. I have experimented with a wide range of espresso blends -- Intelligentsia Black Cat, Peet's Major Dickason blend, others from local coffee roasters in the San Francisco Bay Area, Italian imports -- as well as single origin beans.
I've pulled shots in my La Cimballi Junior and my Brasilia Club with consistently great results. The only downside is that their mail order service is not great. They cater more to the commercial user than to the home user.
Hubbard & Cravens espresso is worth the time and effort to order, if you are serious about your espresso.
This place had great service and some of the best coffee I've ever had. They have whole bean coffees, loose leaf teas, and freshly baked pastries and sandwiches. And its all made right here in Indianapolis!
