The Cafes.

Kestrel Coffee Roasters opened their café and roaster at Technology Park in South Burlington in the summer of 2018. Feeling successful and energized in their passion for coffee, they took another leap just one year later - Kestrel opened a second café location in downtown Burlington, found on Maple Street. Both cafes are dog-friendly and offer ample indoor seating, along with the amazing coffee, tea, and homemade snacks and sandwiches. Find them at the following locations:

South Burlington Location:
30 Community Dr, South Burlington, VT 05403

Downtown Burlington Location:
47 Maple St, Burlington, VT 05401

A Couple's Coffee Shop Dream

Charlotte & Johnny Steverson, co-owners of Kestrel Coffee Roasters, met in 2011 at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a farm-to-table restaurant, in Pocantico Hills, NY.

After leaving Blue Hill, Charlotte, a New York native, joined an event planning company that specializes in corporate and nonprofit events. Johnny started a specialty coffee roasting company, and sold wholesale to some of the top restaurants in and around New York City. Johnny, originally from Mississippi, is a New England Culinary Institute graduate and a certified coffee grader.

It had always been a dream of theirs to one day open a coffee shop together. So, in 2017, Charlotte & Johnny decided to move to Vermont and do just that! They opened Kestrel Coffee Roasters in July of 2018.

Kestrel Adapts to COVID-19.

With the limitations on in person visits to their two cafes, Kestrel has had to adapt sales in order to continue making their delicious coffees accessible to their customers. Creating the curbside window in their downtown location has been hugely helpful. Expecting similar traffic in the cafes for the coming months, they are taking steps to increase their retail bag sales and coffee subscription program - partnering with Local Maverick included!
