Coal Town Coffee & Tea
specialty coffee & tea by the sea
Open Seasonally May - September
Coal Town Coffee & Tea is located on the Homer Spit, at the end of the road in Homer, Alaska. Look for the log cabin on the Coal Point Boardwalk at the top of Homer Harbor Ramp 2, right next door to Mako’s Water Taxi.
Coal Town is open seasonally from early May to the middle of September. Stop by for a great cup of coffee or tea while you are working on your boat or before you head across the bay.
Who We Are
Coal Town was previously run by Katy Rice and has passed the baton to long time manager and friend, Maria Fourier. We love what we do, and we try to respect both the farmer and the customer by serving only drinks that meet our high standards of quality. And while we love perfectly steamed milk and an expertly poured shot, the conversations and connections that take place over those drinks are just as important. We gather to trade fishing reports, to discuss the news, and to laugh. We meet new people every day, and are fortunate to also have a community of locals who are a part of our daily lives.
Supporting our community and our planet is a key value at Coal Town. We use organic, fairly traded, and local products and ingredients whenever possible. Our baked goods, chai, coffee, and paper and ceramic cups are all made here in Homer. We reduce our impact on the earth by recycling, composting, and minimizing packaging.
