Who We Are

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!

With an intense love of food, and a deep appreciation of good service and hospitality, Charlotte & Johnny are excited to be making your coffee experience better.
