Editor’s Note: Although the cafe seating section is temporarily closed, KLVN is open for curbside takeout (8am to 3pm). Check their Instagram for daily updates.

A specialty, Scandinavian style coffee roaster, KLVN Coffee Lab now has a full-service coffee shop you can visit in the East End of Pittsburgh.

Located at 6600 Hamilton Ave, KLVN officially opened their doors on Monday, February 3.

After roasting small batch, single-origin coffees for four years, KLVN invites guests to be amongst their roasting process while enjoying a cup of coffee.

“You can watch us roast right from the bar,” explains Rachel Strongosky of KLVN. “It’s a laid back coffee shop vibe but – at the same time – also feels like you are part of something.”


The large, industrial space – located on Hamilton Ave near Washington Blvd – features ample room for events and future pop-ups.

“We are getting some new baristas and team members trained before rolling out any events, but it’s definitely something that could be a good fit for this space,” Strongosky says.

KLVN’s specialty focus: Single-Profile Coffee

Folks who have tried KLVN Coffee will note their focus on single-origin, single-profile coffee.

“We describe the coffee as clean and juicy,” Strongosky explains. “Since we don’t try to blend coffees, every cup carries its own (taste) profile.”
