Rip Off – I just tried out this Java Jive and was severely disappointed. I paid over $4 for a "large" iced Americano. First of all I was completely shocked by how much they were charging for this drink that I can get at Caribou or Starbucks for $2.55 for a large. This "large" they served up to me was by no means large... It was a medium at most! One sip of this drink I knew I would never be coming back. It was decent, but cannot compare to the espresso from Caribou or Starbucks. I don't see how they can be in business if they are over-charging, and giving you less!
Poor – It amazes me the previous reviews written for this place. I have been to both locations. The value for money is poor. Quick service, yes, but at the expense of quality. A great drink takes time. Get them in and get them OUT is the theme here.
Yum! – I've enjoyed Java Jive since it opened, but now, with the newer shop on Kildaire Farm Road I am in heaven! Their scones are delicious, especially the blueberry and raspberry. Their coffee is fantastic. I particularly like that it is Fair Trade (about time someone around here did that). All around, the BEST coffee shop.
Fair Trade, customer service, value – Customer service is a key for coffee shops, and Java Jive is the best I've tried in the Cary area. I also like their linkage with Fair Trade coffee producers... you can have it all: feel good about how you participate in global trade while enjoying delicious coffee from friendly folks... what more could you ask for?
Seattle for a good Cup O' Joe? NOT!! – You don't have to travel all the way to Seattle, whilst getting your hair wet, to enjoy a nice cup of coffee or fine espresso drink. The Java Jive gets the job done, and how! The atmosphere of the place is fabulous. I very much so enjoy sitting in the corner, sipping a warm drink, and reading of the days events.
* Best of all, friendly service- Normally unheard of in North Carolina, period! Nor can you beat the amount of time it takes to go through the Drive through.. I'll pull up with 6 cars in front of me, and almost think of driving away.. but it's so fast, no bother! Fast, QUALITY!
UNBELIEVABLE DESCRIBES THE BREWED COFFEE AS WELL AS THE LATTE'S AND SMOTHIES. THE FRIENDLY AND SPEEDY SERVICE IS SOMETHING OTHER RETAILERS NEED TO OBSERVE
The only place for a cappuccino – Having recieved upset stomachs and nausia from the burnt beans throughout the area Thank god for Java Jive. THe only place Here that doens't ruin the bean before, durring or after the brew!
It's had a drive up for years. Poor Sta--cks, can't they do anything origional!
Java Jive takes the big boys to the mat – You can have your Starbucks and Caribou Coffee...
Java Jive serves up the best latte in the area. They buy there beans from small independent farms instead of big business. They also offer some wonderful fruit drinks for those hot summer days.
