Location: 2855 Steven's Creek Blvd., San Jose (inside Valley Fair mall)

Espresso: My shot request came nearly at the end of a pre-ground doser, and so I received some portion of freshly-ground beans. This actually resulted in a nicely persistent crema, considering the cappuccino cup used. The crema was medium in tone and of an even brownish color. However, it didn't live up to it's decent looks, as the taste was mostly ashy.
Atmosphere: This is a quite small location with lots of tables crammed into the space, which can make things uncomfortable.
Verdict: Almost shows promise.
