Chef Andrew Weissman of Il Sogno in San Antonio — slated to open tomorrow, see details below — may make one of the meanest espressos this side of the Mason-Dixon Line but the title of “Best Espresso in Texas” is still held by Austin’s Jeff Courington (above), owner Vino Vino, where the Mosaic Wine Group staff can found on many long hot summer afternoons, sipping the java and enjoying the FREE and super-fast wi-fi. Most folks think of Vino Vino for the best natural wine list in Texas but we go there for the espresso, too. Check it out:

Austinites gathered last Saturday for Vino Vino’s annual “Pink Fest” in Austin, where everyone feels “pretty in pink.” Argiano’s new rosé L’O (above) was among the wines poured for the throngs of attendees.
Glazer’s Distribtion sales representative Chris Hughes was among those on hand, pouring Domaine du Salvard Cheverny Rosé and feeling “pretty in pink.”
In what could be compared to a collective case of mass hysteria, everyone felt “pretty in pink” that day.
Vino Vino owner Jeff Courington (pictured above, right, with legendary natural wine importer Kermit Lynch), runs what might very well be the “best little natural wine bar” in Texas and, man, Jeff looks “pretty in pink.”
