Yes, Chino, in the form of Canabru. It has been open about 2 months. They serve Intelligentsia. Equipment all looks well maintained and new. They sell a small smattering of coffee gear and had some bags of Black Cat and some of the Intelli blends for sale. I didn't see any single origin. When I asked what coffee they had available, they said they only do pour over in the afternoon. I hope what they do in the morning has a rapid turn over.
I had a Kenyan and it had that typical Intelligentsia taste to it. It was served properly and was a decent proportion for the price. I hope they do well. Chino is an out of the way sort of place.
And then there is Wahfles Desserts & Coffee out in Chino Hills. Their goal is food, waffles used to make sandwiches, but they also serve Intelligentsia pour over however in a regular cup style. Had an Ethiopian there with food.
Not the place I would have expected to sprout two Intelligentsia locations, but both are worth it if you are in the area.

Don't forget Dripp out that way (Chino Hills) as well. I had a nicely prepared pourover from them (sadly not a given at 3rd-wave shops), and I thought the baked goods were very good, too. Nice that folks in that area are getting some options!
