Kestrel Coffee Roasters was started from the ground up by Charlotte and Johnny Steverson in July of 2018 but the idea for a craft coffee roasting company had been a work in progress since 2011. With Charlotte’s non-profit event planning experience and Johnny’s culinary expertise, their long-time dream to open a coffee shop had become a reality. Kestrel Coffee Roasters has two locations, one in Downtown Burlington and the other in South Burlington. Kestrel focuses on ethically sourcing their coffee from single-origin small farms which mean that their roast selection changes seasonally. They roast everything in relation to the coffee itself bringing out the very best in each bean variety.
