The town calls itself “Awesome Town,” but in order to truly be an awesome town you need to have a specialty coffee shop. And Santa Clarita did not.
Sure, they had their Starbucks, Pete’s Coffee, and other chain coffee stores. But there was no boutique coffee shops. No one was serving house-roasted coffee. No one was searching high and low for the best coffee.
But John and his wife decided to change that. Three months ago they opened Honu Coffee. They were serving Kean coffee; the best coffee in their opinion.
They had randomly discovered this unique coffee several years ago at a restaurant in Lancaster. They had ordered some after dinner coffee with no high expectations. To their surprise, they were blown away by the exquisite coffee.
So John and his wife tracked down the roaster and found that it was called Kean coffee. Kean coffee is personally roasted by coffee connoisseur, Martin Deidrich. He searches all over the globe for the best coffee. He is a firm believer in using coffee that is in season. So the types of coffee change with the season for maximum flavor.
A self-described “serial entrepreneur,” John recognized that the Santa Clarita Valley was lacking in good coffee. He took it upon himself to bring good coffee to SCV.
Honu Coffee is a charming little coffee shop in downtown Newhall. They have a great indoor space as well as a large outdoor patio. But the best part of the coffee shop is their loft space. This cozy loft is the perfect area to study or have a meeting. Complete with comfy couches and plugs for your laptop, it is a great place to hang out.
But the part that can’t be beat is what Honu Coffee is known for – their coffee. You will definitely want to enjoy a cup of their flavorful coffee!
Many thanks to Honu Coffee for letting us stop by and answering our questions! We will definitely be back!
