I'm a regular Starbuck coffee customer. I am not sure why. Maybe it is the convenience or maybe it is because I have owned the stock for quite a while.
I had heard that Martin Diedrich, after trying to launch Diedrich coffee to be the next Starbucks, left the company and decided to head back to his roots.
He recently opened Kean Coffee on 17th street in Costa Mesa right across the steet from the original Diedrichs coffee. I decided to head over their this morning and had the most steller cappuccino I have ever had in this country. All of the coffee beans are roasted in house. You can hardely get a fresher cup of coffee.
I could tell that this place really cares about great coffee.
The mugs of specialty coffee drinks leaving the counter for the people drinking them in the store looked liked works of art.
Also, all of the pastries are from Pacific Whey.
I highly recommend this place. Starbucks has lost a customer today.
