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.


We work tirelessly to roast the very best coffee we can find. Sourcing seasonally ensures the green coffee is always at the peak of its potential. We taste dozens of samples before deciding on a new offering. Once chosen, we pay premium prices to secure these coffees. We believe this model celebrates the hard work and precision of the producers and establishes quality relationships built on a foundation of integrity and trust.

Dynamic flavor is not inherent in 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 them on the light to medium side and never venturing into second crack. The bottom line: we don’t buy, roast, or sell coffee we’re not totally bananas about.
