about us

High Tide Coffee is a local, family owned and operated coffee company based in South Orange County, California. You will often see our two owners, Annie and Scott Kendall, behind the machine slinging 'spro, most likely with their two toddlers, in tow.
Our first location is two blocks from the ocean, in the North Beach neighborhood of San Clemente, while our second is nestled in the rolling hills of Laguna Niguel.
When you walk in our doors, you can expect two things: great coffee and great people. It is our goal for your visit to be the best part of your day. Whether it's our staff or our regulars, we encourage a friendly, welcoming environment. Community is king.
All of our coffees are direct trade, straight from the farms, 100% Arabica beans. We roast fresh weekly, right here in Orange County. Hand measured and hand bagged, it never sits on the shelf. Keep and eye out for our small batch program, roasted three pounds at a time, and features a rotating selection of the highest quality coffees from around the world.
Priding ourselves on fresh, strong, quality coffee, we focus on the classics; hot drip coffee, cold brewed iced coffee, fresh espresso and fine roasted coffee beans, served with our classic VW Bus as a backdrop.​
Quality and service are our top priorities, and we look forward to handing you your new favorite coffee.
