Orchard Valley Coffee

Location: 329 E. Campbell Ave., Cambell

Reviewed: September 25, 2005

Espresso: My espresso shot was served in a paper cup even though I specifically specified "for here". The crema was light hazelnut in color and, as it was thin, dissipated rapidly. The primary taste sensation was some understated nutty notes.

Atmosphere: Orchard Valley is a large shop, with windows on two sides of the building. A high ceiling adds to the open, airy nature of the place. There are a couple of black leather couches near a brick fireplace, which is a nice touch. Sunday mornings are extremely crowded with the Campbell Farmer's Market happening just outside. Free wifi.

Verdict: It's a nice place, but the espresso is uninspiring.
