Some people find a secret treasure and bury it. Depending on what it is, I almost always choose to share my bounty. This week, I met up with my friend Kim at one of my old haunts, Kéan Coffee, in Tustin. Kim is a newbie when it comes to coffee and it’s always fun to be the first to introduce someone to something you love.
I love coming to Kéan. Their coffee house is welcoming and encourages a conversation around coffee and the love for coffee. They purposely don’t have outlets so that you’re not obsessed with your tech. In a world addicted to being online, this is a welcome change. Your sole focus is your beverage and the person you’re sharing the moment with which is why Kéan was a better choice over Starbucks. While I no longer have nothing against Starbucks, I’d like to think their model is dedicated to the busy corporate American. At Kéan, I feel at home and I like that their drinks are imaginative. I have tried everything on their menu but I always come back to the Turkish latte.
In episode 7, Kim and I talk about her first coffee experience, how it compares to coffee in Vietnam, and other coffee she’s tried. Check it out below.
