most of the time this place takes care of you. it is in pullman square so it does get busy. don't be surprised if you have to wait, but most of the time its worth the wait.
One older woman working, another younger girl popped in and out. The woman tried to discourage me from buying anything. Check doesn't work,no cards. I flashed a ten and she grudgingly pushed off from the counter and started my order. I wanted four shots of espresso and foam but no milk. She commented that she would have to move her coffee so as not to put mine in by mistake. After the first two shots I asked for the cup to put my sugar in. She refused. Made the other two shots and handed me a cup 2/3s full of coffee. What? Now I think she really did pour my espresso in her coffee. I explained again that I just wanted her to scoop the foam out with a spoon, and then I watched her POUR steamed milk in and hand it to me with NO foam. While I explained AGAIN that I had just wanted foam and there was literally none in my cappuccino she said the machine was broken. I told her she should have told me before making the coffee. She offered it to me for free. No thanks. Seriously, if you want to sell coffee, couple of things you should do; 1. Hire people who WANT to make coffee. 2. Train them how to make it. 3. Invest in some functioning equipment.
Had my first cup of coffee from Java Joe's new location on E. Pea Ridge and I have to say it was without a doubt the worst cup of coffee I have ever had. I ordered a mocha latte and paid $4.75 for it and it tasted like watered down hot chocolate. The people in charge need to go to speedway to find out what a decent cup of coffee taste like. If Java Joe's is going to charge those kind of prices then they need to learn how to make coffee.
Is $5.50 for a cup of coffee really worth it ? You can buy a can of coffe for only $5
