teela brown was completely shocked to find an astoundingly skilled set of baristas pulling awesome espressos in downtown San Jose.

They use Blue Bottle Coffee: That should have San Jose coffee drinkers already swooning with delight. Baristas Eddie and Dan pull a “flawless, tiny ristretto heavily capped with silky red-brown crema, and I amused Eddie and Dan by doing a happy dance as I drank it.” teena brown thinks they’re clearly better than Barefoot Coffee Roasters. chipman thinks this little operation is on a par with the big three of Bay Area Coffee—Blue Bottle, Ritual, and Barefoot.
