Kéan-as all java junkies already know-is Martin Diedrich's indie coffee house, which has now taken over a Tustin Starbucks for its second 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.
