As previously stated:

…I figured I would set out to try every espresso in The City (and some in the South Hills burbs)… if you want to find the perfect coffee, you have to put in the legwork. In the interest of simplicity, here’s how it’s gonna go down: single shot espresso, rating from 1-10 based solely on that shot. No further justification. Just because.

This afternoon, I’m in the Allentown section of Pittsburgh which can only mean one thing when it comes to coffee shops: Black Forge Coffee House. This place is a winner on so many levels.
