about hammer & kettle

Our mission: to foster community through craft coffee.



We started with an old-fashioned popcorn popper and a love of well-brewed coffee and hospitality. We are based out of Boise, Idaho, and thanks to loyal friends and family, we are now purchasing a commercial roaster to further our dreams of providing quality coffee to Boise! It is our mission to use craftsmanship and coffee to foster community wherever we go. Come along on our journey!



Bodhi Leaf Coffee Traders — We currently order the bulk of our coffee from Bodhi Leaf, a company who values real relationships with their coffee farmers and their families and puts this into practice through Direct Trade.



After living and working at a coffee shop for several years, Tyler came to love the art of everything coffee. This love was already settled in his mind when he went to Africa, where he started thinking more about community development through coffee farms and shops. His passion and goal is to grow into a company that can impact our local community of Boise, while also impacting those of coffee farmers and their communities. By buying Direct Trade beans from companies like Bodhi Leaf Coffee Trader, he hopes to develop positive business relationships, community development efforts and sustainability movements.
