Today's review of Coupa took place during a quick jaunt through downtown Palo Alto; I stopped at three places, in order: Coupa, Satura Cakes (I have previously reviewed their Los Altos location; they have a new location here), and Caffe del Doge (also previously reviewed).
Of note, when I stopped at del Doge, I requested and received the Doge Rosso blend; it's definitely on the sweet side, but it was served way too hot with a pale crema.
My shot at Satura was not bad at all; the crema was a little on the pale side, but the shot tasted fine.
So downtown Palo Alto has now been compared head to head to head and rank ordered:
#1: Satura Cakes
#2: Caffe del Doge
#3: Coupa Cafe
