“Verve is serious about making excellent coffee and had a great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

An excellent place to seek out if you are serious about your coffee and want a community atmosphere to sip it in. They are using top end grinders and espresso machine and their baristas are very well trained and friendly.

“Great coffee”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great cup of coffee with a unique favor. The Verve is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The pastries are delicious. Its apparent by how busy they can be that it's also a favorite place for the locals too.

“Homelier than Starbucks”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

It's a "hometown" version of Starbucks but everyone knows each other. They sell some take-home products which if we lived there, I would have purchased to try out (different types of tea etc).

“Great coffee”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We went there on a rainy day. It was a great tasting Americano. I tried a sip of another coffee (Concepcion?) from my son who is a coffee afficianado. Nice setting to have coffee on a rainy day.

I like my coffee hot. I wish I had told them in advance.

“Three Great Locations for the Best Coffee”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Verve is a local firm which roasts all their own blends between trips on the waves. It has the original shop in Capitola, another roastery and shop and a large relatively new location on Santa Cruz' main drag. Each is excellent, good beans, well roasted, skilled barristas and a good atmosphere. The places to go for coffee.
