The coffee world has changed immensely since Giovanni Giotta opened this place in the 1950s. Back then, we imagine it would have been No. 1 with a bullet not only on a list of best coffee shops in San Francisco, but quite possibly west of the Mississippi as well. Caffe Trieste still roasts its own beans, although the new wave of country-specific coffees has passed it by. It still delivers a quality cup of cappuccino. But its appeal is really the atmosphere: Caffe Trieste's original North Beach location has accumulated it in layers that no obsessive upstart can hope to duplicate.
