Hey everybody, I’m Philip Brown. I was a musician in Athens, GA looking for work when I wasn't on tour and scored a job at a local coffee shop. While I was on the road with the band, I was exposed to new and exciting approaches to coffee. The experience was so inspirational that in 2010, after years working as a barista and roaster, I decided to pack up the fam and move to Savannah to start a company. My mission was simple: to roast and share awesome coffee. Armed with a roaster, a bicycle, and a giant backpack, I started building a brand one bag at a time. 

As business grew, I knew the team had to grow too, so I assembled a diversely impassioned crew that came together like a coffee Voltron. Batch after batch, we built a culture around sharing the product we loved. Soon we outgrew the shop, moved the operation to a larger spot, dropped in a bigger roaster, and opened a tasting room to share the good stuff.

Now we are a bunch of down-to-earth bean hustlers who are passionate about good times and insanely awesome coffee. We’re incredibly honored to work with the amazing farmers who produce these phenomenal coffees and unbelievably humbled to have the chance to share them with you and your families -

we hope you dig them!
