I love the coffee here. I had a latte and it was wonderfully smooth. Nice ambient. Also, they give you coffee ground if you want to feed your plants :D

Quite simply the best in the area. This place knows coffee and great cistomer service. They make cappuccino the italian way, the way it should be. I just can't be happier to find this gem. This is my go-to espresso place!

I have been there 6 times and each time the coffee/mocha is never hot, nor prepared as I requested and I dont think the barristas are humorous at all. Never Again.

Kean Coffee is an independent coffee roaster/coffeehouse owned and operated by Martin and Karen Diedrich. Martin Diedrich founded Diedrich Coffee in 1984, which developed out of his father Carl Diedrich's coffee roasting business. Diedrich Coffee grew from it's roots as an Orange County favorite to become a rather large company, eventually going public and acquiring other coffee chains. In 2004 Martin parted ways with his company and founded Kean Coffee, named for his son, in order to return to his roots as a small, local, independent coffeehouse operator. With Kean Coffee, Martin and Karen have brought the focus back to quality and community, again roasting coffee in-house and elevating coffee to an art form. Kean Coffee is a true community gathering place.
