Crema Coffeehouse draws its name from the rich, caramel-colored foam that caps any decent shot of espresso right after it's pulled. And that's the primary job of the baristas at Crema: to pull decent shots of espresso. They also brew coffee from a handful of roasters, including local outfits Novo and Ozo. Crema is located on Larimer Street, just above the Ballpark neighborhood. It's one of the most eclectic areas in town, and local artists and musicians spend a lot of time on the couches in this sparse, urban shop.
Crema is the lovely layer of thickly effervescent foam that defines well-crafted espresso, an emulsion of the essential oils contained in the coffee. This presence of a thick layer of richly aromatic, reddish brown crema indicates that all culinary factors were met satisfactorily during the preparation of the shot. Espresso is all in the nose. The aroma of espresso lives in the crema so swirl it around. Get your nose right down in there. Inhale deeply.
