Yes -- it will be a bit of a ride. The Caltrain drops you off in Central
San Jose. Cisco is on the very east side of San Jose.

Take Caltrain from San Francisco, then transfer to VTA Light Rail (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VTA_light_rail ), get out at Cisco Way (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisco_Way_%28VTA%29 ), walk.
I must be missing something obvious here. I spent a bit of time looking
at the Caltrain and VTA websites (and transit.511.org).

Caltrain from San Francisco Station to Mountain View Station takes 45
minutes on one of the morning 'express' routes. It would then take 40
minutes or so of light rail, bus and walking to get to Cisco Way.
Alternatively Caltrain can take you all the way to Tamien Station, and
then a single light rail ride will take you to Cisco way, but again the
total time is over two hours.
