    Try a Ryanato, a much stronger latte. A double ristretto actually, with less than the original's amount of milk...

    If u plan to use laptop or spend quite a time for other stuff, don't hesitate to go upstairs. Although less cozier environment, plenty of power cables and clerks don't come upstairs that often :)
