we are tree huggers…..avid lovers of coffee …….seekers of all things unique …… always yearning to connect with community……looking for inspiration in all things….bohemian travlers…...adventure seekers …….living life loud and curious..

Meet The Martyn House In Towne Coffeehouse…..we long to make great coffee….great latte art…..and all things coffee even greater!!  Great coffee always starts with the very BEST coffee beans….add a great coffee roaster (we like the mad scientist kind) then of course you must use the BEST espresso machine….The La Marzocco was named after the symbol of Florence, Italy – the lion – La Marzocco has been the leader in espresso machine innovations since 1927 –Since the 1980’s, La Marzocco has helped to build the specialty coffee community into the robust, quality-driven industry it is today. We named ours ‘Francesca’……and of course the final component for all GREAT coffee shops is the BARISTAS that make the magic!

It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong. What do you do? You integrate it with cream, you make it weak. But if you pour too much cream in it, you won’t even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it puts you to sleep. – Malcolm X

But then they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!” Jack Kerouac

Welcome to the Martyn House Speakeasy…a place where you enter with secret codes…..indulge in all things wonderful……where community is at it’s rarest form and conversation most real…..it’s private….its adventurous and it’s about all things we love….

Bleary eyes, insaned mind bemused and mystified by sleep, details that pop out even as you write them you don’t know what they mean, till you wake up, have coffee, look at it, and see the logic of dreams in dream language itself, see?
