Im usually not the one, who give bad comments, but, in this case, its a joke, that a place, witch called itself "Expression Cafe", and try to be looking cool, "cultural", and international, dosent even have a coffee machine...
To the story:
I was really...disappointed from this Expression Cultural Cafe...
I went there today, i thought, after all that local coffees i get in Santa Ana, with a lot of water, not really tasty and strong, finally i will have a nice cup of coffee, in this place, witch called Expression Cafe.
I experienced in a lots of different countries, that really good coffee you can get many times in coffee shops.
So i went there today in the afternoon, and asked for one Espresso.
She said, no problem, seat down please.
Never in my life i was waiting 15 minutes for a coffee. There where like two other tables, they had already their drinks. So no excuse for waiting time. I thought, maybe, they switched off the coffee machine, so thats why takes that long.
In this "Cultural-cool" atmosphere, the light was off, so during the waiting time, i could not even read my Lonely Planet, witch also highly recommended this place...
During the waiting time, i get a lots of gnat bite, no air condition, no fan.
Finally, the "espresso" came, witch was a not EVEN a hot drink, witch i also could get in every other cheap local location in the city... Lots of water, lukewarm, no taste, no caffeine.
I was really disappointed, i wanted to pay and leave, the waitress dosent even had an idea, how much my "espresso" should cost, she had to go away, and look in the menu...
Thats why, i NOT recommend this place for people, who like to drink a REAL coffee - or espresso.
The owner, who did so much, to decorate the place, should travel around, for example to Costa Rica, and have a look, how their the owners working in their coffee - shops, with a coffee machine, to serve - or try - first quality coffee, for connoisseur.
Thats nothing, zero, good enough for local people, who dosent even know, how should be a real coffee shop with real coffee. Disappointing...More
