Aaron,
Saying you're in LA is like saying you're in Massachusetts. LA is a BIG area (over 6% of the population of the entire country lives in this area). Rancho Cucamonga is about 40 miles east of downtown LA. You're much closer to San Bernadino or to Riverside than you are to Los Angeles itself. Much closer to you is the city of Claremont, south of Interstate210. Exit the freeway and go south on Indian Hills until you get past the Claremont Colleges. After a couple ofmiles you'll come to the old downtown area of Claremont. There are a couple of nice little shops there.
HTH.

Go to Coffee Klatch in Rancho Cucamonga - best Espresso in LA (but not
in Massachussetts).  BTW, the owner won the Barista Championship a
couple of years ago...http://klatchroasting.com/content/view/25/51/Or lookup Starbucks.  Several people on this list like them...

Yikes! All of those typos and misspelled words are really irritating. 
They may serve good espresso, but this web page really looks 
unprofessional. :(

That page does have a lot of mistakes, but some seem much better. Spell 
check is a wonderful thing. Fortunately, you don't have to spell well to 
roast or pull shots.
I noticed that credit is given to a design firm. Then I looked *under 
the hood* at the code. Oh my. Now, that's unprofessional, but the client 
almost never knows about that sort of thing.

Except for your second suggestion...now that's down right contrary to the
thread title!

That's good to know. I'll have to swing over there next time I'm in the area. Thanks, Brett.

Check out the Diedrichs chain - they're mostly in Orange County, and I'm not sure how far east or north they go.  They were recently purchased by Starbucks, but as yet, they have not been ruined.  I go their when I run out of the home roast (Sunday's). They have very good coffees, serving a light/medium roast and a full/dark roast (whatever that means). Much better than anything Starbucks has ever served.
   
  You can also go to Martin Diedrich's actual store in Newport Beach - Kean Coffee. He knows his coffee really well, though he only serves Columbian. He roasts on the premises in (you guessed it) a Diedrich roaster, and you can buy fresh roasted (and even green) beans from him.  On the plus side, its kind of satisfying having Martin Diedrich himself clean-up after my 4-year old. Its very crowded on weekends.
