Good luck. I've not heard of any place in the area that I could recommend. Sorry that we're so far away-- it would be great to have you visit Volta. I was in BJava last year (I'm from Bloomington and was visiting friends in Indy), and I'd be happy to return the hospitality that we had in your shop.

I am so sorry I really do not know of any acceptable cafe's in Fort Meyers. We have had a significant number of stores close up I am aware of a good one in Leihigh Acres though and the owner Melinda is a doll. It is called "L.A. Cafe". If you are in the Sarasota area I would love to have you take a tour of roasting facility!
Best of luck to you in Fort Meyers

Dude, you were so right about the Abbey, the spro was flat! The guy pulled the doser lever twice into the bottom of a single shot basket. I couldn't even see anything in there when he proceeded to tamp it with the attachment on the grinder. It's no wonder that it spewed out quickly for you. I also suggested that his gasket looked like it was going out because the portafilter handle was way over at about 3:15 (if 6:00 is normal) but he insisted that they are checked every six months. He was kinda defensive so I figured that more instruction would be on deaf ears.
