COFFEE ENTHUSIASTS + TEA LOVERS
YOUR CUP OF INSPIRATION
To welcome, serve, and inspire our local community by offering organic, fair-trade coffee with a global purpose. Martin Coffeehouse: Your Cup of Inspiration.
When John and I first walked into the property on Lindell Street four years ago, we were humbled by the history of this progressive era structure. It had been partially restored in the downstairs but still needed a lot of love. In our daily conversations we would dream about someday owning the blue building on Lindell and created stories and scenarios of how we could live our best lives in that space. After months of "What if's", prayer, and dreaming, we received a call from the owner who was finally ready to make a deal. We moved our production business, Fernweh Fox, into building and tried our best to fill up the the space with furniture, desks, and a giant white board to house our giant ideas.
We installed our professional production gear, spent late nights editing films, and took turns racing each other across the concrete floor on our rolling office chairs. The space was a wide open shell that allowed our minds to explore new ideas, but one idea I couldn't shake was the thought that we weren't doing justice to the story of this history space. I told John about my idea to transform this space into a place of service and gratitude, a place to inspire others, a place for the community. I explained that this building was a wonderful creative studio, but the blue building on Lindell was meant to be more. That's when we created the name Martin Coffeehouse. We didn't know anything about coffee, except how to drink it, but we knew we were fast learners. We immediately started preparing the space with the idea of service in mind. We climbed ladders, patched holes, painted the floor, sanded boards, and sealed the walls. We researched roasters, crafted a menu, designed a logo, purchased supplies, and went furniture shopping. Every motion was done with an attitude of restoration. Every purchase, every design, every experimental recipe. On August 18, 2017 we opened our doors to the community of Martin, Tennessee. They flooded our shop with support, and have continued to support the story of this shop on Lindell Street ever since.

Building Community One Cup at a Time
Courtney and Susan view coffee as an invitation to the community's front porch. It means coming together and sharing stories over a familiar cup of coffee. ☕️
With Courtney's experience in the coffee industry and Susan's passion for her community of Huntingdon, these two make the perfect team when it comes to custom designing a space that will best serve the people of Huntingdon. They have been making some key decisions on what materials would make our new space the absolute best. We are so excited to continue forward in these next stages of development! The equipment will be in before we know it!
Lindell Street Bakery
We Knead What you Love
Shortly after Martin Coffeehouse opened in August 2017, we found ourselves puzzled with the predicament of balancing the growing lunch menu against the coffee that started our shop. After much thought and thousands invested in the kitchen, Lindell Street Bakery was designed to house the breakfast, lunch, pastries, and cupcakes that are made in house and served to hungry customers every single day. Now, when you want to invite a friend out for lunch, you can meet them at Lindell Street Bakery, a cupcakery with everything from club sandwiches and homemade soup to ruby red velvet cupcakes!
