"Espresso" is the long and impressive arete and face at the far left side of the Java Wall. There is a large loose looking block protruding from the face at the base.

There is a beehive a couple feet left of the base of the climb Java. They are very "mild mannered", we've climbed Java and had no problem with them.

In regards to the bee hive, there is also a hornets nest on route at the top of Daily Grind near the top/second to last bolt. My friend stuck his finger in their two finger pocket home only to be greeted by a swarm of angry hornets that chased him down the face as I hurriedly lowered him. I wouldn't climb this route until after the first frost when these guys start to die off.
