Extraordinary care taken in producing the freshest, most flavorful cup of coffee. Every sip feels like medicine for the soul--maybe it has to do with the intentions of the owners--this place is not to be missed.

Hot and humid today. Perfect for a Creamsycle at Kean's. A 50/50 blend of orange and vanilla ice cream to cool you off. Life is good!

Description
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.
