KIT Coffee


Unlike its neighbors to the north, there are only a handful of places in Orange County that I’ve discovered that embodies the “total package.” Kit Coffee is one of those places. Nestled in the well-to-do beach community of Newport Beach, Kit Coffee is far from being pretentious. With its over the top commitment to the human experience, Kit welcomes you with a smile and offers a fantastic array of coffee from Coava, Heart, and Temple. Its bright open space, light colored wood, and accents of white and gold help me and I’m certain others reach a place of clarity and peace. And I don’t know why, but I really dig their geometrically shaped stools!


Kit’s commitment to detail reminds us that in order to truly enjoy a cup of coffee, you need more than just the coffee. Coffeetude tested and Mother approved! =P

Tips: Kit has a full service coffee bar and pour overs are brewed with the use of a V60. They just started offering a short list of food items which consists of breakfast burritos, avocado toast, pastries, etc. (haven’t had the opportunity to try yet) However, I did see them bring in food from Porto’s once, so hopefully they’ll do so again. So, I’m big into vessels and Kit has some awesome Bowman Ceramic mugs for purchase. I LOVE mine! Sorry, not sure about WiFi.

First post! Thanks for visiting! I can’t stop yelling!

Introduction of our blog!

“Where do I go for coffee?” “What should I order?” “Where do you get your beans from?”  “My coffee keeps coming out bitter.  What do I do?”   I had been getting so many (welcomed!) questions about where to go for coffee in various cities, or how to make coffee at home that I found myself repeating myself or copy and pasting my texts to various friends and family members (sorry if you got one of those!), that my fingers were about to fall off. Then, someone asked the brilliant question, “Why don’t you start a blog?” Now, why didn’t I think of that?! So here, I present to you, a coffee blog. 🙂

With a primary focus in Southern California, we’ll feature numerous coffee venues at which you can drink good coffee, as well as have a nice time doing so.  Whether you’re looking for a place to hang out with friends, or get some work done, or to find your much needed moment of solitude, we might be able to help! And if you want to step up your coffee making game to another level, we can give you some pointers.

But there is so much more to coffee than coffee.  We’ll share how we look at coffee through humor (we hope!), art, philosophy, life, community, and more.  We want to have fun while we share our attitude about coffee.  Hence, Coffeetude.

In the next few weeks, we’ll unveil more details, but in the meantime, we’d love to hear from you! Please respond as a comment or find us @coffeetude on Instagram and Twitter. If we ever do help you out, and you post about it, we’d appreciate a #coffeetude mention.  Thanks for stopping by!
