This two-shop Napa chocolateria chain layers its larger retail floorspace with edible chocolate, drinkable chocolate, truffles, and just about anything else chocolate you could think of. There's a couple of small café tables for limited for-here seating. Using a two-group Grimac La Valentina La Vittoria serviced by Dolce Neve, they pull shots of Peerless and produce a textured medium brown crema. In fact, for Peerless Coffee, the results are almost shocking: it has a decent body, an assertive flavor of spice and pepper with some smoke, and a smooth mouthfeel. Served in colored World Market ceramic cups. Surprisingly better than we expected.
