Looking for a new best place to have our weekly coffee, and have some very specific paramaters:
1) The espresso must be really really good.
2) There must be comfortable seating for 3.
3) The seating must be private enough that you can have a conversation at a normal volume and not feel like the people at the next table can overhear you, but not so loud that you have to yell to be heard.
4) It must be short walking distance of 6th and University. Belltown is too far, International District is too far. Pioneer Square is borderline.
We used to be extremely happy with the Juan Valdez on 5th and James, but it closed down. Help me Chowhounds, you're my only hope!
