Where do you go around town for really good espresso? I don't mean for a specialty drink, or atmosphere, or wifi or anything else other than a place that pulls a really, really high quality shot of espresso. (Okay, it might also be cool if they can also make a really good cappuccino, but that's secondary.)

Nor does it have to be a coffee house, per se -- restaurants, hotels, whatever, all are fine.

Medici has some serious afficionados. I heard one of the guys talking about being in a competition somewhere.

I've been drinking Americanos for awhile now, so quality of the coffee stands out more.

He was also mentioned in an article for a trade magazine.

I like Caffè Medici quite a bit. They have good frappes.

I feel your pain, though. I'm originally from Naples (Italy), which is known nationwide as the best place to get an espresso. Needless to say, I'm a bit underwhelmed by Austin's.
