We are Starbucks coffee drinkers and occasionally will get McDonald's coffee. This coffee was of gas station quality. I didn't drink mine.

Well, by golly, you must go to some pretty nice gas stations. We serve only Ritual Grounds Coffee, a specialty roaster located in Vista, California. As the owner of Circa Espresso Bar, I actually toured their facilities when deciding which roaster to use as our exclusive supplier. I am wholly confident that the plethora of repeat customers who come to our coffee shop nearly each and every morning might disagree with your review.

This place attached to the Historic Route 66 Hotel is basic, but decent. I enjoyed the special care the woman working put into preparing my coffee and smoothie.

Friendly, unpretentious service. Skilled barista. Reasonable prices. Free WiFi. What else could you ask for?

I got a brewed coffee and my son got a strawberry smoothie. Both were delicious and reasonably priced.

good old style(no push button espresso here) espresso bar with a barista. any 16 year old can push a button at starbucks, but it takes a bit of practice to pull a proper espresso the right way and circa does it right. next time I'm in Tucumcari, I'll have to try the attached motel as it looks very nice
