Coffee & Tea 24

Attention Chowhound heavy-weights (to borrow the notion from Eat_Nopal, Das Ubergeek, et al): Where do you get your coffee? Orange County locations a plus, but willing to go to LA if I have to. Mail order okay, but I am very conscious of roast dates, and would prefer to go local.

Lately, I've been subsisting on Yirgacheffe, or other various varieties, brought to me from Intelligentia in Silverlake, which a buddy of mine frequents at the rate of about once a week. Otherwise, I'm likely to go to Kean in Costa Mesa - Martin Diedrich's new(ish) coffee house, and I occasionally see Intelligentia, Monkey & Son, etc. at Wine Exchange in Orange, although the roasting dates usually dissuade me.

Also, I'm waiting on the details, but a friend of mine swears by some little micro-roaster in Huntington Beach, but I'd love to hear your recommendations!
