a neighborhood oasis of connection, conversation,
craft, joy and exceptional coffee
we use counterculture coffee and local milk from sweet rowan farms
We take great care in the balance of our espresso shots, making sure that they are full of flavor and showcase the unique terroir of each of the beans/roasts we use. All espressos are double shots or 2 oz.
We started using small mason jars when we were practicing our espresso making skills and then realized they were the perfect size for a cortado or as the French would call a noisette – 2 oz of espresso and 1 oz of milk.
Our cappuccino’s have less foam than you may be used to. We take 2 oz of espresso and mix it with 4 ounces of steamed milk.
Our lattes come in one size. Yummy. 2 oz of esprepsso, 6 oz of milk. Trust us.
The Devon is a latte sweetened with local maple syrup.
Elevating the simple cup of coffee – A 2 oz espresso mixed with 5 oz of hot water. Less bitter than a drip coffee but with more umph than a pour over.
We love our Kalita and love to show off the complexity of the flavors (terroir) of Coffees. a pour over gives us good control over the coffee extraction and yields a balanced flavorful cup of coffee.
Can you have a serious coffee geek be without a siphon? No! We agree – come try any one of the great coffees we have on hand.

about pk coffee
PK Coffee was named in honor of our founder’s great “Uncle Piet”, Pierre Ketellapper. Piet, or “Pietje” as he was affectionately known, was a successful serial entrepreneur. He owned many businesses during his lifetime, but the one he was most passionate about was the coffee importing business he owned in Antwerp, Belgium before and after WW II.
Katrina knew her great uncle well, and also fell under the spell of coffee early on in her life – but it wasn’t until she moved back to Vermont from San Francisco that she admitted how much she really loved it. It was while she was taking an espresso class that she learned her friend Matt was also looking to start a coffee business. He had given up his his job as a teacher to focus all his energy on making a living from his main passion. Matt and Katrina met up and within a matter of minutes realized they had very similar visions, joined forces and the rest is history.
Matt and Katrina are both avid students and can’t imagine a better gig than showcasing a product that is so often mishandled and misunderstood. Our goal is for every customer to leave PK Coffee surprised that coffee can taste as good as it smells. Maybe even a wee bit better!
Katrina has been a passionate coffee connoisseur since she was 3 years old – always seeking out the best hand-crafted coffee. Just ask her friends and family – she’s always dragging them out of their way to check out this barista, or that shop.
Matt is a recovering teacher and committed coffee nerd. Matt spent the last 7 years working as program manager in the Champlain Valley Union High School where he worked with challenged students: motivating them to complete their schoolwork often on empty stomachs or dealing with sever emotional distress.
