A B O U T

Planetary Coffee got its start as a roving coffee shop serving Traverse City and the surrounding area of Northwest lower Michigan. It is a dream realized together by Emily Wilensky and Erik Harms, two people who have embarked on a quest to serve the planet’s finest coffees, and to pay respect to all the hard work and dedication that goes into producing this universally loved beverage.

Right now we are working our butt’s off and gearing up for the launch of our new location in beautiful Elk Rapids, Michigan. Here you will find us serving up incredible seasonal coffee, espresso, tea and specialty beverage offerings  alongside a small selection of locally made conventional and gluten-free pastries, and house-made small plates prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Our philosophy when it comes to coffee is simple, source it well, prepare it with care, and serve it with love and respect for all those who have made it possible along its journey from seed to cup.  That’s why we work with vendors like, Halfwit Coffee Roasters, who focus on sourcing high quality varietals from small farms across the globe. At Planetary Coffee, we strive to reflect all of the region’s beauty and charm, and to bring integrity and quality to every beverage we serve along the way.
