Local Downtown Boise coffee & tea house to sprout Bench location

Fast in the Morning Wild 101

Moss Coffee and Tea opened its doors in Downtown Boise just more than a year ago. The small shop on 9th St. near the entry to Freak Alley Gallery serves up a variety of coffees, teas and pastries.

Now, according to filings, Moss plans a location on the Boise Bench.

Owner Tasmyn Raleigh applied with the City of Boise to take over the former Aero Caffe Coffee shop at 210 N. Orchard St. You might remember that spot as the aviation-themed shop with the plane models in the rafters.

While not large, the new Orchard St. location is nearly twice the size of the downtown nook – 1,061 square feet versus just 525 square feet.

“We have a lot of fun with the tea, just trying out different flavors, different combinations with different alternative milks,” Raleigh told Boise Weekly last year. “And then our customers have fun with that, and we feed off of them and try the drinks that they suggest or might be a little more daring with than us.”
