Kéan-as all java junkies already know-is Martin Diedrich's indie coffee house, which has now taken over a Newport Beach spot for its third location. The news seems even more sweetly karmic when you realize that this Starbucks used to be a Diedrich before the buyout. As with its Newport Beach location, the star of the room is a custom-made contraption that looks like a Franklin stove equipped with Space Shuttle parts and a touch-screen console. This progeny of HAL 9000 and a stand mixer is responsible for custom roasting all the beans for the brews you'll drink. The coffee is featured in other permutations of hot and cold elixirs. The Grasshopper, one of their signature hot drinks, is scented with nostril-tickling mint, which can be smelled in the updraft but not tasted in the liquid. The shakes are whirred with chocolate ice cream, with the coffee dosage measured in varying strengths, depending on what you order. The non-coffee shakes are delicious, especially the Orange Dreamsicle.
