ABOUT

We all have a memory of the best cup of coffee we’ve ever had. Maybe you were on a camping trip with your buds, or maybe you were just sitting on the front porch on a cool fall morning. There’s something visceral that sticks in your brain and every other cup from then on is compared to that one. These are the moments that inspire us. In everything we do—from sourcing amazing coffee, to developing tasty roast profiles, to roasting the beans with care—we are driven to deliver memorable experiences.

 

SOURCING
We source coffee seasonally to ensure it is at the peak of its potential. We taste dozens of samples before deciding on a new offering. Once chosen, we happily pay premium prices to secure these coffees. This model celebrates the hard work and precision of the producers and establishes relationships built on integrity and trust.

The growers we work with are highly skilled artisans. They've built reputations for producing amazing coffee year after year. We are inspired and humbled with the effort and care they put into their work. Our goal is to honor them by roasting these amazing coffees with love and we can't wait to share it with you.

ROASTING
Roasting coffee is our heart. Dynamic flavor is not inherent in great green coffee – it’s latent. With that in mind, we create individual roast profiles for each coffee to maximize varietal expression. We believe in highlighting the natural sweetness and balance of these beautiful coffees by roasting on the light to medium side, never venturing into second crack.

Once roasted, every batch is cupped and scored and its roast data evaluated for consistency. We truly believe this attention to detail makes our roasts some of the best in the world.

The bottom line: we don’t buy, roast, or sell coffee we’re not totally crazy about.

 

STORY
 

In 2010, after years of working as a barista, manager, and roaster in Athens, GA, Philip Brown came to Savannah. His mission: to cultivate an appreciation for outstanding coffee in the South. Armed with a Diedrich IR-12, a bike, and a really big backpack, he built PERC Coffee one bag at a time. 

As business grew, Philip knew the PERC family had to grow too, so he assembled a small and diversely impassioned crew that came together like a coffee Voltron. Batch after batch, play after blistering late-night play of Paranoid, they built a culture around sharing the product they loved. They eventually outgrew the shop, moved the operation to a warehouse on the east side, bought a bigger roaster, and built out a swanky training lab. 

Now we are many. With backgrounds in music, technology, and science, we are a team of detail-oriented creatives united by the same common interest: making and sharing damn good coffee.
