Centrally located on Downtown Escondido’s historic Grand Avenue, Kettle Coffee & Tea is a neighborhood coffee shop committed to quality. Kettle Coffee and Tea features fresh, locally roasted coffee and award winning espresso from Klatch Coffee Roasters as well as a carefully selected variety of loose-leaf teas, herbal blends and fruit tisanes (most are 100% organic). 

Kettle offers a variety of manual brewing methods: Chemex and V60 as well as two methods for cold brewed coffee: Kyoto and immersion cold brew. Careful attention is given to proper espresso extraction and milk steaming as an essential part of Kettle’s coffee program. Additionally, Kettle’s baristas craft drink recipes for our seasonal menu using unique, natural ingredients, including our chai made from loose-leaf tea and natural sweeteners. To compliment our coffee & tea program we offer fresh locally baked pastries, as well as seasonally inspired sandwiches and salads.  Kettle’s food program always features unique and delicious provisions to pair with equally unique and delicious beverages.
