I just recently returned from a trip to northern California and Oregon. I was happily surprised to find that there are a couple of good places to get espresso in Redding, California.
The first is called "Coffee Bar", and features a very nice, modern interior decorated with posters of vintage motorcycles. They also have a cool, but nonfunctional, early La Pavoni espresso machine on the bar. They serve coffee from Northbound Coffee Roasters, which is a small roasting company in Shasta. They use a Strada to make espresso, with big Mazzer grinders to do the grinding. The espresso and cappuccinos were very high quality, among the best I've had, which was a pleasant surprise.
There's also another shop nearby called "Brew", which features a more relaxed, cozy environment. I didn't try their coffee, since I was already caffeinated enough from my visit to Coffee Bar, but it looked fairly promising.
