In my experience, airport coffee usually kind of sucks – there are some Peet’s or Starbucks around for at least a caffeine fix but not much else. In Europe, I’ve been to a few places that sell Illy or Lavazza coffee which, in my opinion, is okay but not great. I visited a Mayorga at BWI and had a terrible espresso.
It was nice to have a more positive coffee experience at SFO airport’s new terminal 2. I visited the Equator coffee (first ever retail!) cafe at the Napa Farms Market and had an nice balanced espresso a bit oddly served in a to-go cup. Another place to add to the coffee map.
